Summary

The Adipower Weightlifting 2 is a specialist weightlifting shoe designed for Olympic Lifting and Powerlifting. This includes snatch, clean and jerk, deadlifts, squats and bench press. No longer the reserve of specialist gyms, these sports are gaining more and more mass appeal, and can also supplement your running training. If you're currently wearing a running trainer to lift in, we strongly recommend you look into a more specialist shoe that offers stability and support in the right places.

The Adipower Weightlifting 2 was originally designed for the London Olympic Games in 2012, and this version features a breathable woven upper, laces and a strap to lock down the mid foot, and a strong TPU midsole to give great stability under the heel.

The upper fabric is durable and rigid to keep the foot secure and features a bold 3 stripes design.

The outsole is more flexible than a traditional lifter which makes the shoe suitable for light, dynamic workouts too. The midsole heel drop is 20.1mm which is the same as the original model, so if you're looking to upgrade these should feel the same when lifting.

Who is it for?

The Adipower Weightlifting 2 is recommended for people working out in the gym with barbells and heavy dumbbells. If you are looking to work on your squats, and are lifting a heavy weight, this shoe could transform your workout and give you much more confidence when lifting.
