Mens Weightlifting Shoes


Don’t reach your limits, break them with our weightlifting shoes

Though weightlifting concentrates a lot of strength and power in the upper body, your feet provide the stability and control you need to maximise your lift. And to get the most out of this, the right weightlifting shoes are essential. adidas have a wide range of some of the most stable and reliable lifting shoes around, available in many different sizes and designs, so whoever you are and however you lift, you can find the right footwear for you. Choose from weightlifting shoes for men and women.

Lifting shoes built for the challenge

Power pulls, dips and other moves need a strong midsole to help you stand firm and deliver the power you need into the lift. Weightlifting shoes like adidas Power shoes offer a high-density wedge midsole and sturdy rubber outsoles with a wide midfoot strap to help you maximise your weight training session. Adipower Weightlifting II shoes meanwhile feature a reinforced upper that hugs the contours of our feet, while firm TPU midsoles give you a solid base for heavy lifts – laces and a midfoot strap keep your feet secured and ready for the biggest challenges.

Just because you’re working hard doesn’t mean you can’t be stylish while doing so. adidas’ range of comfortable and performance-focused lifting and squat shoes come in a wide selection of different designs, featuring iconic adidas details like the 3-Stripes and Trefoil motifs. You can also choose from your favourite or even lucky colours, including black, white, blue, green and red.

Weightlifting shoes designed for performance

As well as having a solid, reliable construction, adidas lifting shoes contain special features that help you to lift that little bit harder. Our Boa Closure System allows you to micro-adjust the fit of your lift and squat shoes, so you can find the right balance between comfort and a secure fit for consistent hold. adiWEAR outsoles meanwhile provide exceptional durability, no matter how often you head to the gym to perfect your lift. Extra-wide fits provide additional stability and balance, while Flex Grooves at the front of the shoe and anti-slip rubber help you to feel as confident as possible, whether you’re lifting at the gym or in a competition. Paired with a pair of adidas joggers (choose from our men’s or unisex range), adidas weightlifting shoes can make you an unstoppable force to be reckoned with.

For many decades, adidas has helped athletes in many different sports, across the world and at all ability levels to reach their full potential. Our weightlifting shoes with stable balance and exceptional grip will enable you to stand strong and focus on the lift at hand, whilst also looking great.

Mens Weightlifting Shoes Frequently Asked Questions

It’s generally advised not to perform deadlifts in weightlifting shoes that are intended for squats, as the raised heel will increase the range of motion and the load on your quads. Specialist deadlifting shoes are available.
You should not run in weightlifting shoes, because they don’t have the necessary cushioning or grip, and will also wear out quickly.
A raised heel provides a deeper squatting position, improves ankle mobility, and helps your torso remain more upright during lifts.
