Just thought to myself fuck it and ordered one of these. Adidas has an unbroken record of superb sport shoes in my life. What can i expect in terms of technique at compounds? Are they worth it?
Also, shoe thread
>>
shit shoes bro sorry they are not good and strong they will make your feet tremble while lifting :/
>>
They aren't a garuanteed improvement, especially if you don't have much trouble staying upright. After two years of owning them I still prefer low bar squatting in chucks (sorry rip), but they definitely helped with front squatting and high bar squats. Tried deadlifting in them for a few months but wasn't feeling it.
>>
>>35640755
A massive amount of padding that take a while to get compressed. Much betger than the running shoes I was squatting in
>>
>>35640755
These are decent shoes. I bought a pair a few months ago and haven't looked back. They have helped a lot with squats and ohp, still go barefoot for diddlys.
dont know what this guy>>35640842
is talking about, i have found them immensely helpful with stability.
>>
>>35640854
i dont like deadlifting in em either. I have a pair of romaloes or however the hell you spell it. they're great though, pricey, but I got em as an early Christmas present so I didn't care
>>
>>35640755
I like to wear Chucks.
A lot of guys you will see at the gym who look like they have been going to the gym for a long time, wear them.
>>
>>35640755
Shoulda bought the Power Perfect 2 instead.
>>
>>35640842
i have no problem lifting with these. even when im doing 340 3x5.

yes, there is VERY minimal compression but it is negligible unless you're squatting 500+ i would assume
>>
adipower are better op

now u gotta buy it twice
>>
Just go barefoot. Lifting shoes are a meme.

That being said I've never tried them.

Those shoes will be just okay for beginner for 6-12 months. The sole is padded not rigid and as a result it will compress resulting in a loss of stability. They are not a good weightlifting shoe next time get Adidas actual weightlifting shoe the Adipowers or pick up some Nike Romaleos. I personally have a pair of Adipowers, and I absolutely love them.

they are entry level shoes, still much better than no lifting shoes.
>>
ATTENTION
If you are considering buying a pair of oly lifting shoes, look out for good deals, with the olympics coming up, adidas and nike will probably be releasing a new model, and selling their older ones at a reduced price.

I wear them for everything but my deadlifts.

>>35641412
Sole doesn't compress as easily
heel on pp2 is 0.75 inches
on powerlifts its 0.6

if you are lifting to be competitive sure, but snug fit incompressible flat heeled shoes are just fine like what you posted.

I squat in pic related

bretty good, the future laces get nice and tight

make sure you buy true to size though
>>
>>35640755
The slight lift on the sole always throws my balance off.

I have a harder time squatting and deadlifting in these than I do barefoot.
>>
>>35642540
I got similar laces on my biking shoes, wouldn't want to go back to normal laces.

I like them. Never felt any instability and because their heel is only half-height, they don't bother me when doing deadlifts, which was the main argument for me to buy 'real' weightlifting shoes.
>>
I think they fuck up my knees.

After I started using lifting shoes and switched to high bar, my knees have started to hurt a lot. I can still walk alright but if I crouch down and sit there for a few seconds I'm having trouble/pain in getting up. I've almost given up on back squats and I do only front squats because it's not as bad for some reason.
>>
>>35642711

Why would you deadlift with an elevated heel? Aren't you supposed to be flat for those?
>>
>>35643063
do lowbar theyre better for ur knees
>>
>>35642540
What Adidas shoes are those ?
>>
>>35643105

I did for a few months. But I found that my quads weren't getting developed at all so I switched to high bar.

Legend thanks man

thats what front squats are for
>>
>>35643180

So I should alternate front squats and low bars squats?
>>
I lift barefoot
>>
>>35641443
Fuck, i have the same colour of shoes.
>>
>>35643206
yes

or not necessarily alternate but do both
>>
>>35642540
you have to buy a new pair if the lace system breaks, good luck m8
>>
>>35643518
reviews say the system is sturdy as fuark tho
>>
I have pic related.

Dunno why but i feel a bit... idk, embarrased maybe.. using them. Because I can only squat 150kg for 5 whereas most guys i see with this shoe squats much more
>>
>>35643744
these shoes have come down a lot in price. they were only $90 when I bought them. Compared to other weightlifting shoes at $60 , they look a lot sturdier. I just started 2 months ago and didn't want to buy an okay pair of shoes to have to buy another pair later so I just got these. I still have to work on my mobility but they have helped my highbar squatting a lot. If I can wear these to squat less than 2 plates giving 0 fucks, you can deal with your shit.

Its time to invest on some better shoes
>>
>>35641443
Nice cheap ass butt plug poorfag
>>
>>35643744
>>35643836

I can't even squat 2pl8 either
>>
Which cheap lifting shoes would you guys recommend for a broke ass student
>>
>>35641443
Why is there a hand grenade attached to the squat-plug?
>>
>>35644918
its inflatable to make intra-abdominal pressure like the valsalva maneuver, getting out of the bottom of an ATG squat is easy.
>>
>>35643125
What's your max squat?
>>
>>35645046

2pl8 lowbar 1RM

High bar 5RM 82kg
>>
I bought these off someone for $130 (RRP in Australia is like $230 or you can buy them from US and then get rekt by the conversion + shipping), basically brand new. These have definitely helped my depth with squats, not to mention I do feel like I have better support
>>
>>35645061
Your quads are small because you have a beginner squat, not because of the bar being an inch higher or lower on your back.

goddammnit, now I have a craving to jerk off to endra lust

I don't know if weight should determine whether you wear lifting shoes or not, I think it should be more based on technique like. So if you find that at lower weights you
