Recommendations for a good Powerlifting shoes (main use Squats)

  1. Recommendations for a good Powerlifting shoes (main use Squats)


    Can a few people using powerlifting shoes give some suggestions. I am thinking about getting on a 13 Week Powerlifting program. Wanted to get as much edge as I can to improve my numbers.

    A lot of the reviewers have Adi as their choice.. Romaleo 2 is the older version. They have a 3 now, correct?

    Yessir, Ive personally had both the 2s/3s. IMHO the 2s are just more solid and more of a traditional squat shoe then the 3s.

  6. Depends on what you prefer.

    I currently have the Romaleo 3s. They are more lightweight.

    For powerlifting since you dont move the feet (like in weightlifting) Id recommend something sturdier.

    The Adidas Adipowers I had previously were awesome. Reebok Legacy will be the heaviest and probably the most sturdy. Or Romaleo 2s, but they will be harder to find.

    If ankle mobility is really limiting (Id recommend working on it rather than hiding it but anyways...) the Adidas Leistung have a higher heel than the others listed.

    I had adipowers until some c0ckwomble nicked them....I loved them but I got a pair of leistung to replace them and never looked back - the heel is higher than most but the drop isn’t actually that much greater and the added stability from the really good little twisty wheel thing (technical term) is very good.

    I use the Otomix Stingray and Ryderwear D-Mak. Wanted to see if a proper squat shoes will help a bit more.

    Did you wish he drown with the shoes in his a$$hole? lol.. I feel your pain. Leistung is a tad heavier than the rest, no?

  11. Romaleos 2 over 3s, not even close...Legacy Lifters if I had to choose a different shoe.

    Thanks brother. Let me check me check them out z

    I don't know that using a weightlifting shoe is going to give you an edge and improve your numbers. The slightly elevated heel I suppose is useful for hamstring flexibility, and the nice stiff flat wide-ish sole is good for sticking to the ground. Nobody should be doing heavy squats/deads in squishy soled tennis shoes or anything anyway, so it's a matter of elevated heel vs more flat heal with a lot of choices in both categories, to include good old fashion wrestling shoes for the flat category (good for deads)

    I like the Romaleo 2's. Mine have lasted forever, I only use them for squats. I like them over the newer version, which I have not tried, but I do not like the single strap. I like the double strap on the 2's because I feel like I get more stability.

    But the 2s are not available. Looked into Reebok Legacy Lifter, SABO and Adi Power. SABO looks solid for the price

  16. I also have the 2's. Had them for a few years and they perform since the first day. I just checked and there's a dozen places where u can get them still.

  17. Eastbay has them for $99 right now. Deal of a lifetime

    Theyre a double strap and the metatarsal strap is SOLID. My shoes have been durable considering the years Ive used them. Ive been squatting at minimum 3x a week for the last three years (Ive had them for four years but had to rest my lumbar for a year due to disc bulges)

    True. But not the sizes I can wear

    I ever find the twat he’ll wish he’d drowned....

    They do feel a touch heavier but I stopped noticing after a week. They feel solid af which is nice when sh1t gets heavy

    SABO is great for deadlifting, I have a pair, but I probably wouldn't use them for squatting unless you want something that mimics squatting bare foot.

    Really? It’s got a 0.75” high heel.

    I think hes talking about their deadlift shoe and not their powerlifting shoe.
