Opinions on the Adidas Powerlift 2.0?
I'm on a budget and need some decent shoes.
I also like that the heel is lower than the weightlifting shoes.
Nice, I think it's a purchase for me then.
Thanks m8, thanks guys.
I used them for a year or so, they are stable and do their job. But I was too lazy to switch shoes or put them off when doing deadlift (or assistance) so I just sticked to chucks. You have to know if you need that extra mobility/quad work. They didn't look as high as the other adidas shoes so I bought them in the first place.
save up and get the adipowers
They've been going on sales for as low as $95
I can't wait for long. My uncle is in the US until Feb 2nd, and I won't be shipping anything internationally because the taxes double the price. He's gonna bring it with him so no taxes. So it's now or never.
I'm on a budget for the shoes. I'm not lacking in money for the daily life.
>cheap plastic soles
that shoe site on the /wlg/ sticky said they compress relatively easy
I seriously hope you don't live in Yurop, they're not on decathlon.com, but they're there if you spend more than 30 seconds searching.
Taxes are literally 100% of the product+shipping total price. So it becomes 200% the price. An Adipowers would cost me over 250U$
If I buy a Powerlift2 right now it will cost me 80U$ or so.
>helps with squat depth
You shouldn't use the heel as a crutch
If you can't squat properly in flats/socks, you have other issues to worry about
But it sounds like you have your mind made up m8
I can squat below parallel with lowbar and ATG with front squats.
But if I can get a little bit more depth, I'd be happy.
But the main reason is comfort and stability, and help with mobility.
I already lift in flat shoes and I know I want something better.
Amazon only sells books in my country, anything else needs to be purchased from the .com website.
its alright, i have only been doing highbar ATG in them so far.
i dont ever take em outside and only wear them in the gym, so far its only gotten a little grey on the tip of the shoe, although i can probably easily clean it, had it for about 3-4 months now.
>cant squat heavy
This was a month ago and my back is still a bit wonky.
might just take 2 weeks of squats and deads. depressing as i dropped 250 on them and cant use them as i intended
i got both powerlifts 2.0 and adipowers, admittedly i got my adipowers for less than the powerlifts during boxing day sale for like $76 CDN lol. powerlifts probably cost me like $90 CDN.
i used the powerlifts for a while, but now im using adipowers for heavy squat days, both are good really, especially if ur on a budget. just get whatevers cheaper.
>Adidas Powerlift 2.0?
Perfectly good for you.
>I'm on a budget
Buy from the Adidas web site and use special offers (e.g signing up for email), sales, coupons, credit card cash back and such to get the price down. I got a good deal on my Wei-Rui Warrior shoes ($77.94 shipped from MAXbarbell), but then the wife got her Powerlift 2.0 (as pictured) for significantly less.
Check out the adidas Drehkraft, OP. they are a notch up from the powerlifts. Let me know what you think
>Do not waste money on any other shoe.
He's right. There is no point even starting to lift until you have Romaleos on your feet and - quite literally - The Perfect Set Up in the gym in your home, the Villa Léopolda.
