Good to know
Stability and motion control add-ons are uncommon for workout shoes and are never present in CrossFit or weightlifting footwear. They are mostly found in walking shoes where the gait is easier to correct.
Training footwear typically weighs between 200g and 300g per shoe to accommodate agile workouts. Minimalist trainers go as low as 150g, while weightlifting shoes can go as high as 500g.

One of Adidas’s biggest lifting shoe successes. This shoe’s potential shortcomings fall in their security and their price.
But these shoes are absolutely a great investment.
An expensive pair of shoes, but are lightweight and provide the stability for powerlifting. They are also an ideal brand for CrossFit.
Comparing it with the other shoes it stands above most of them. I guess the price carters for this eventuality.
Updates to Adidas AdiPower Weightlifting Shoes
- Just as the name suggests, the Adidas AdiPower Weightlifting Shoes are designed with lifting in mind. They are structured with a weightlifting-engineered chassis, infused with a lightweight polymer, to give a solid foundation without weighing the shoes down.
- The height of the heel section is about 20 mm (0.79 inches), which is an average heel height among weightlifting shoes from Adidas. Such an elevated position of the heel is meant to help the wearer go deeper into a squat without stressing their Achilles tendon or losing an upright posture.
- The shoe lends a compact fit, thanks to the form-fitting PU-coated leather upper and an instep strap. These give a secure foothold to ensure that the feet are firmly planted when lifting heavy weights.
Adidas AdiPower Weightlifting Shoes size and fit
The Adidas AdiPower Weightlifting Shoe is true to size. The toe box width runs a little narrow, so wide-footed people might find it a bit restrictive to the toes. The width is available in a standard medium profile. The shoe caters to both male and female athletes.
The outsole of the Adidas AdiPower Weightlifting Shoe is made from anti-slip rubber to ensure steadiness and firm grip. It is equipped with the VentFlow openings to keep the foot ventilated throughout the training session.
The 20-mm heel allows for improved ankle mobility. It helps athletes in reaching lower squat depths while maintaining a proper posture.
The midsole features a firm wedge which is made of solid thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). It is a lightweight yet non-compressible material that is meant to add sturdiness to the shoe.
The Adidas AdiPower Weightlifting Shoe employs a PU-coated leather upper to provide a snug, yet comfortable fit.
The mesh tongue makes it extra breathable, while the hook-and-loop instep strap on top prevents the heel from slipping off the shoes.
The upper houses a weightlifting-engineered chassis that has been injected with a lightweight polymer for a structured construction softened by a comfortable textile lining.
