But these shoes are absolutely a great investment.
The shoes felt great. I really felt like I got a lot deeper with the squat.
An expensive pair of shoes, but are lightweight and provide the stability for powerlifting. They are also an ideal brand for CrossFit.
For support, comfort, durability and stability in your squats, curls, cleans and snatches, Adidas Adipower wins the final verdict.
To ease the minds of those who may be looking at the price as a bit far fetched, I can tell you that they will last your longer and be more comfortable than many other shoes that you may consider purchasing.
Is the shoe worth it? I believe it is because I've seen great results since I switched over to a weightlifting shoe as opposed to just a regular flat shoe.
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.
