Who should buy the Reebok Legacy Lifter II

Meant for Olympic weightlifting, this Reebok pair is designed with its heel higher than the forefoot to help plant the wearer's feet when lifting weights. To achieve the desired outcome, the rearfoot section employs a firm and incompressible plastic. The Legacy Lifter II is a solid option if:

  • You need a trainer that provides balance and support to help improve your squats and lift performance.
  • You prefer a shoe that utilizes both top-quality materials and fashion-forward design.

The Reebok Legacy Lifter II's full-length traction

The Reebok Legacy Lifter II uses a full-length rubber outsole. It features a simple tread pattern that aids in keeping the foot grounded when lifting.

This model is not as flexible as your typical pair of workout shoes. This design ensures that the foot will remain flat and be able to support the wearer while weightlifting.

Stabilized and supportive platform

The midsole of the Legacy Lifter II features a full-length TPU stability plate. This component is a hard plastic that aids in stiffening the sole unit.

The heel is also made from TPU. It is flared at the bottom, which helps steady the foot. The top section cups the hindfoot, preventing unnecessary rearfoot movements. This material is so sturdy that it won’t compress or bend.

Footbed comfiness

Inside is a thin foam insole. It provides a comfortable footbed that also prevents the foot from sliding around while you train.

Enhanced upper breathability

Textile makes up the top of the Reebok Legacy Lifter II. This material is more pliable than leather, which was used in the previous model. It also offers more breathability.

Reebok Legacy Lifter II Upper1

The inside is lined with soft fabric. It prevents chafing or blistering, especially at the Achilles area. Soft foam is used to line the tongue and the collar. Not only does the foam add a comfortable element, but it also helps secure the fit.

Souped-up foothold

The Legacy Lifter II uses two types of closure. The first is the lacing system, allowing wearers to adjust the fit throughout the whole midfoot.
