Released in January 2012, the AdiPower Weightlift is the newest high-end Olympic lifting shoe by Adidas. It replaces the former AdiStar model released in 2008 and once again carries the highest price tag of all the Oly shoes on the market. This begs the question, are these shoes worth the cost?
Adidas has been producing shoes for the sport of weightlifting dating back to the 1970s. Debuting in 2008 at the Olympic Games in Beijing, the AdiStar Weightlifting is probably one of the most well known models of shoes amongst Olympic weightlifters. The model boasts several upgrades and improvements over the older and cheaper Ironwork models.
