This model has been discontinued and replaced by the new “Adidas Power Perfect” model.
The Adidas Ironwork III Olympic weight lifting shoes is another great example of a large brand manufacturer branching out to a smaller group of athletes with specific needs. Overall the Ironwork 3 is a great shoe, especially if you have narrower feet as they tend to fit this foot type better than Do-Win style shoes. These shoes don’t share most of the advanced design of their bigger brother the AdiStar, but they do fit more like a regular athletic shoe.
The main disappointment with this shoe is, like all name brand products, they are somewhat cost prohibitive coming in at about $30 more than comparable shoes. Also, the limited style and variety means you are going to wear a white pair as this is the only color available. While I’m not knocking name brand shoes (I definitely have some Nike and Asic trainers in my closet) it just seems that there are other brands in the weightlifting market that are made just as well (if not better), have more options and cost much less. But again, if you have skinny feet, these shoes may be the best fit for you.
- Narrow fit, great if you have skinny feet or like a really tight shoe
- Well made, exposed wood block heel
- Fit more like a “sneaker”
- Narrow fit, sucks if you have wide feet
- More expensive than comparable shoes on the market
