Weightlifting · Shoes

adidas weightlifting shoes are engineered for power and stability and feature our trademark 3-Stripes style. Push yourself to lift heavier weights, knowing you’re stable in specifically cut models. Squats and Olympic lifts feel more comfortable and it’s easier to maintain proper lifting form, which helps prevent injuries. Choose from advanced Adipower lifting shoes for the heaviest weights with a raised heel and high-density midsoles, versatile Powerlift weightlifting shoes, and durable Power Perfect shoes with engineered die-cut midsoles and integral heel support. All our high-performance shoes for weightlifting offer lace-and-strap combination closures to keep you stable with a locked-in feel. Super grippy rubber outsoles keep you planted on the mat. You bring the power, adidas will bring the stability, style, comfort and grip.

When you’re engaging in power pulls and dips you’ll be looking for a strong midsole to allow for the perfect foothold. Think about a weightlifting-engineered chassis featuring lightweight injected polymer that adds structural strength to your footwear. The rearfoot cradle feature will ensure superior lockdown stability while the adidas micro-adjusting Boa® Closure System protects the foot with a consistent hold. For high-wear durability, look to the adiWEAR™ outsole for long-lasting use in the gym. Most weightlifting styles feature an extra wide fit, which helps the foot spread and enhances stability, for a more balanced start position. As a close, smooth fit is of the essence; almost all footwear comes with sock-like lining while Flex Grooves at the forefront of the shoe allow for natural movement. Anti-slip rubber material features in full-length outsoles for consistent ground contact, we refer to this as an Anatomically Shaped Outsole, and it works for those that need lightweight grip and support. Vent Flow openings in the outsole ensure a comfortable foot climate while the essential instep strap ensures a locked down fit – every time.

Weightlifting Shoes Frequently Asked Questions

Flat weightlifting shoes are suitable for core and development lifts and will help you build a strong base. They are better for deadlifting. Flat sole weightlifting shoes allow more contact with the ground and evenly distribute foot pressure.
These are the standard lifting shoes, also called ‘squat shoes’. The heel helps you descend lower while maintaining proper form, making it safer.
Many weightlifters wear trainers with a minimalist construction for training. Though not ideal, if the trainers have a flat sole and minimal cushioning and provide sufficient traction and stability, they could be suitable. Wearing adidas weightlifting shoes removes some of the guesswork.
