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?
A quality made, budget friendly power lifting shoe for the beginning to intermediate weight lifter. The PowerLift Trainer Shoe has been designed around the harder to find Power Perfect 2 design and is an excellent choice for the more casual weightlifters. Featuring a lightweight feel, comfortable sneaker-like fit and attractive price of $90, this shoe is likely to become a big hit with the many lifters.
Undoubtedly the most anticipated shoe released in 2011, the Reebok CrossFit Oly is designed to be the first ever multi functional weightlifting shoe. We put it to the test and see if it can really replace all your other trainers without sacrificing the intensity or agility of your workouts.
A hand-made Olympic weightlifting shoe designed for the serious lifter, featuring a real wood heel and quality leather. The Series 2 is Risto’s offering for the 2011 year and sets the bar for quality, style and functionality within the oly lifting world. This new model boasts some great upgrades and still has (almost) all the features we loved about the series 1 model. This shoe is already receiving praise from the crossfit and Olympic lifting communities.
Finally! A cheap pair of weightlifting shoes for under $100 that don’t suck! This model actually doesn’t look or feel cheap at all. Features include a set .75″ heel and all leather construction with a sneaker-like fit. The Wei-Rui Maestro are hands down the best weight training shoe under the $100 mark at this time.
