Remember that while you can WOD in these shoes, I wouldn’t recommend it; they’re just not agile enough to stay comfortable with a bunch of movements.
I just like the way that the Legacy Lifters feel on my foot. I like the support they give. I like that extra height...It puts me in a more upright position.
The Reebok Legacy Lifters are very stable weightlifting shoes, and the best option for lifters that need a high heel raise.
Over all the the Reebok Legacy lifters are a very stylish and comfortable shoe for powerlifting and weightlifting.
These are unconventional – they utilize the newest innovations to provide a unique lifting experience that no other brand can duplicate.
Reebok’s brand new Legacy Lifter is their showcase oly shoe.
The Reebok Legacy Lifter made a loud entrance into the world of weightlifting shoes, taking its place among the cream of the crop in this category. It’s got everything one would expect from a professional weightlifting shoe:
- A flat base with a hard-wearing rubber outsole
- A sturdy TPU wedge with the heel height of 22 mm (0.86 inches)
- A supportive leather upper with two adjustable Velcro straps
The high abrasion rubber on the outsole of the Reebok Legacy Lifter is utilized to offer a durable and grippy platform. The footprint of the shoe is designed to be flat and wide. Such disposition helps in creating a stable base for landing at the bottom of a squat.
The heel part of the midsole is made of hard TPU. It is a non-compressible material which provides sturdiness and resilience to abrasion. It has replaced wood as a new standard for weightlifting shoes due to its lighter weight and better durability.
The Legacy Lifter features a removable insole. It is meant to provide a bit of arch support for a more secure fit.
The shoe features an Ortholite Antimicrobial Sockliner. It works together with the anti-microbial lining to wick away any moisture and eliminate the chance of bacteria buildup.
75% of the upper is made of leather which wraps around the foot for a snug feel. The leather is perforated around the toe box for ventilation, while some mesh is placed in the ankle area for added comfort and breathability.
The heel of the trainer is embraced by the Exoframe TPU strap. It serves to give the rearfoot added support and steadiness during lifts.
The Reebok Legacy lifter utilizes the Flexcage technology in the form of two Velcro straps for enhanced lateral support. The upper strap goes across the midfoot, while the lower one is placed just above the toes. Such a system ensures full security for the foot while allowing the athlete to adjust tightness according to their preference.
The upper strap has a Velcro-free gap in the middle. The shoelaces can be placed in this section without being ruined by the Velcro.
