  • 95 / 100 | Biolayne

    But these shoes are absolutely a great investment.

  • 95 / 100 | Francesco Pollaccia

    The shoes felt great. I really felt like I got a lot deeper with the squat.

  • 90 / 100 | Garage Gym Planner

    An expensive pair of shoes, but are lightweight and provide the stability for powerlifting. They are also an ideal brand for CrossFit.

  • 85 / 100 | Workout Gear Lab

    Comparing it with the other shoes it stands above most of them. I guess the price carters for this eventuality.

This AdiPower trainer is designed with weightlifting in mind. It is structured with a weightlifting-engineered chassis to give a solid foundation.

The height of the heel section is about 20 mm (0.79 inches), which is an average heel height among weightlifting shoes from Adidas.

The shoe lends a compact fit, thanks to the form-fitting PU-coated leather upper and an instep strap. These give a secure foothold throughout the training session.

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 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 20-mm heel allows for improved ankle mobility. It helps athletes in reaching lower squat depths while maintaining a proper posture. The same heel height is used in the 2nd version of the Adipower. However, the overall design of the new shoe receives a total makeover.

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.
