Enhanced outsole grip

The Fastlift 335 makes use of the Sticky Rubber compound to ensure grip on wood, rubber, and concrete surfaces.

It features the Meta-Flex technology at the forefoot section. This groove creates a flex point to accommodate the natural bending of the foot.

Anti-slippage suction

The checker plate design and the suction cups in the heel section work together to prevent slippage when lifting weights. The outsole extends past the upper unit, forming a wide base for extra support and stability.

Firm yet lightweight platform

The Power-Truss wedge of the Fastlift 335 is comprised of the strategically-positioned TPU pillars. The lightweight, yet firm nature of the TPU material forms a robust platform which doesn’t compress under heavy weight.
