Well, Christmas is coming up so I'm looking for a good present aside from supplements. I've always lifted with running shoes and I've never really paid attention to weightlifting shoes until recently. My workout partner bought the Adidas Adipower, he left me try them on and I felt a significant difference with my footing, stability and overall comfort while doing squats and dead lifts. Even with bench press it has helped me stabilize without using my toes or toes slipping inside my shoes. Also, with the lifting shoes I was able to focus more on my form and place my hips were it needs to be when lifting.
My plan is to improve my Oly lifts (gain strength, power and etc) - Deads, Squats, clean and jerk, power cleans, hang cleans, maybe snatches.
I came up with 3 options;
1) Adidas Adipower - I had a great experience with them so far, so anymore input would be great.
Price - $200
Style - 6/10 mostly the color
2) Nike Romaleos 2 - What's your opinion? Nike doesn't sell them anymore but some reseller still carries them.
Price - $200
Style - 8/10 more color choices
3) Reebok Oly/cross fit - I'm not really sure about this one since it is also a crossfit shoe. My question is will it give me the same stability and support? They shoe itself has great reviews but I'm assuming most of them came from crossfitters.
Price - $150
Style - 5/10 plain, 3 color options
So yeah, Any input greatly appreciated and thank you for time reading my post!!
