Adipower Weightlifting shoe review

Training and competing with these shoes for over 2 years has been a delight.

The Good:
- Very stable and solid heel.
- Flexible sole. 
- Tough and long lasting. 
- Comfortable. 

The Bad:
- Expensive. 
- Narrow fit. I have to get a slightly bigger shoe to work for my wide foot. 
- I have seen some pairs crack at the toe crease. Although Adidas has rectified this with their new white version of the Adipower, my WL shoes have been crack free. Perhaps due to the fact I use shoe trees when I'm not using them. 

Overall, I would say these are the best weightlifting shoes money can buy, especially if you have a narrow - normal foot width. If you have a wider foot like me, you may want to try the Nike Romaleos 2 weightlifting shoe. 

To order Adipowers in Canada, I highly recommend the Adidas dealer Viking equipment. Guy Greavette will draw on his unprecedented experience in the field being a past elite weightlifter. 

In the states you can search online for East bay shoes for the best deal or try Dynamic in Washington.
