Best Weightlifting Shoes for 2019

The Rogue Do-Win Classic Lifter is back in stock and available – get yours before they sell out.

Lifting heavy weights requires the right footwear.

Many people lift using normal sneakers or running shoes – and that’s a big mistake.

They should be using proper weightlifting shoes, like the Nike Romaleos 3 XD shown here instead.

Nike Romaleos 3 XD Weightlifting shoe - Mens - Designed for elite-level lifting, the Nike Romaleos 3 XD features a honeycomb-patterned plate for stability, while Flywire technology and a dynamic strap provides a supportive fit during your workout.

Best Shoes For Squats? Weightlifting shoes are the best shoes for squats. The raised heel (which is very firm) minimizes the ankle range of motion needed. The solid heel ensures you are stable with hundreds of pounds on your back.

We’ll review who makes the best weightlifting shoes for 2019, and why.

These are the best shoes for Olympic weightlifting, powerlifting, and the weightlifting portions of the CrossFit WOD.

Here’s the shoes we are going to review in this article.

Nike Romaleos 3 XD from Rogue Our top pick for a weightlifting shoe – 20mm heel raise. High tech thanks to the honeycomb TPU plate, midsole strap, and “fly wire” for the ultimate in stability and locked in feel.
This special Patch version of Nike’s 3 XD Men’s Romaleos includes a set of 5 exclusive logo patches that athletes can use to customize the ankle and tongue of each shoe (via a hook-and-loop attachment).

Two hook-and-loop tarsal straps + nylon webbing backers ensure a firm, custom fit, and each heel is crafted from stacked layers of genuine leather. Like the originals, the effective heel-to-toe drop of the Do-Win is approx. 0.75” (19mm).
Do-Win Classic Lifter Shoe The original Rogue weightlifting shoe, the Do-Win, is back in a re-launched “Classic” edition. It's got a genuine stacked leather heel - and looks great.

Let’s talk about what makes these shoes the best for Olympic weightlifting, and squatting in particular.

Why You Need Proper Weightlifting Shoes

Why weightlifting shoes?

Squatting in running shoes is like lifting weights on a bed mattress.

Stop doing that, and get some real shoes for weightlifting.

Why aren’t regular sneakers or running shoes good for lifting weights?

It’s simple – running shoes have way too much padding and cushion.

This makes them great for the repeated, jarring shocks and impact of running.

But, it doesn’t make them very good for hoisting hundreds of pounds above your head or on your back.

Running shoes have many desirable qualities – they are light, comfortable, breath well, and normally provide lots of traction.

Their fundamental weakness is having too much cushion in the midsole and outsole.

And most of them don’t have enough of a heel raise to really work well for lifting weights either.

The Adidas Power Perfect 3 Weightlifting Shoe
The Adidas Power Perfect 3 Weightlifting Shoe – has a very large heel raise – like all good weightlifting shoes do.

Take a look at the Adidas Power Perfect 3 weightlifting shoe here. See that sky-high heel? That helps – a lot.

What you can’t see is that it’s also rigid – and won’t deform under dozens (or hundreds) of pounds.

Lifting without weightlifting shoes?

You could be sacrificing a PR (personal record) or even worse – risking an injury.

We need something that is the opposite of a running shoe.

It should offer stable and rigid support, with a lot of heel raise, and it doesn’t matter how heavy it is – we’ll be standing in one place.

Let’s talk about why you need those things.

Features of the Best Weightlifting Shoes (Squat Shoes or “Lifters”)

Purpose-built weightlifting shoes are specialized for lifting weights.

And whether you are looking for men’s or women’s weightlifting shoes – all the best weightlifting shoes will have these things in common.

Weightlifting Shoes Have a Rigid Sole and Heel

What is the most important feature of weightlifting shoes (also called squat shoes or “lifters”)?

The primary benefit is that weightlifting shoes have a firm sole and solid heel. Adidas Power Perfect 3 Weightlifting Shoe - SUPPORTIVE SHOES THAT GIVE LIFTERS THE EDGE.

How solid? The heel is sometimes even made of solid wood – or another equally rigid material.

They are stable – really stable. Your foot will not sink into any of the foam cushioning like that typically used in running shoes.

That’s a big deal because it’s easier on your joints and helps prevent injury.

And it also helps to ensure efficient power transfer.

The Olympic lifts (the clean and jerk, and snatch) are done fast and it’s the power generated by the lifter that enables them to lift the weight.

Let’s not waste that power by compressing a jelly-like midsole – let’s use it to get the weight overhead instead.

But these shoes aren’t just for Olympic lifters.

The “slow” lifts of powerlifting (the squat, and deadlift) can benefit as well.

The Do-Win Classic Lifter from Rogue is a no-frills weightlifting shoe you can use for Olympic lifting and powerlifts.

In any case, the last thing you want with a heavily loaded barbell on your back (or in your hands) is to have your foot smooshing around in a rubbery soled shoe.

The angles of compression in your knee joint shouldn’t be constantly changing as you move the weight.

There are trade-offs to having this rigid sole and heel – typically weightlifting shoes are much heavier than regular sneakers or running shoes.

But, that’s OK – we are not running, jumping, or sprinting in these shoes.

Weightlifting Shoes Have a Raised Heel

Weightlifting shoes also typically have a raised heel.

Here’s the heel of Nike’s classic weightlifting shoe – the Nike Romaleos 3.

See how tall the heel is?

Nike Romaleos 3 Weightlifting Shoe - Mens - The Nike Romaleos 3 Weightlifting/Powerlifting Shoe delivers the stability and locked-in fit you need for intense weight training. Interchangeable insoles provide soft or firm support to match the needs of your regimen.

This lessens the required ankle range of motion and ensures you can more easily get deep into a squat position – without rounding your lower back.

And it’s not a small heel raise – A heel raise of .75″ or more is not uncommon.

The height of the raised heel can be expressed as the offset or heel to toe drop, or just plan drop in shoe terms.

A typical classic running shoe (such as those from Asics) have a heel to toe drop of 10mm – meaning your heel is about 10mm higher than your toes. Newer style running shoes that encourage “midfoot striking” have a lesser drop of from 5 to 6mm, typically.

How does that compare to a weightlifting shoe? In a weightlifting shoe, a 20mm heel to drop drop is popular – that’s over a 3/4 inch heel.

That is 100% more drop compared to an old-school running shoe.

Having trouble hitting depth in your squat?

Struggling to hit depth in your squat? Strap on a pair of real weightlifting shoes and get ready for some magic to happen. That raised heel means you need significantly less ankle flexion – which seems to be a problem for many people. Squat shoes make it easy to hit depth.

You can also improve your ankle range of motion – but squat shoes have other benefits too.

Weightlifting Shoes have a Midsole Strap

Weightlifting shoes also typically have some sort of in-step or midsole strap.

This helps ensure your foot is securely locked in place in the shoe.

The Nike Romaleos 3 XD has a slick looking strap – right at the midfoot – as you’d expect.

Nike Romaleos 3 XD Weightlifting shoe - Mens - Designed for elite-level lifting, the Nike Romaleos 3 XD features a honeycomb-patterned plate for stability, while Flywire technology and a dynamic strap provides a supportive fit during your workout.

It is a “hook and loop” (aka Velcro) strap that you can tighten as much or as little as you desire.

Again, this is to avoid all extraneous movement – which could cause injury otherwise.

Sliding and slipping also interferes with power transfer as you jerk or snatch a weight overhead.

Weightlifting Shoes Have a High-Traction, Grippy Sole

Lastly, weightlifting shoes usually have a really grippy sole – for the maximum in traction.

A slipping foot while lifting weights could mean a nasty injury – so traction is of the utmost importance.

The downside to high traction rubber? It wears out quicker than harder rubber.

Sole of the Nike Romaleos 3 XD - Mens - Designed for elite-level lifting, the Nike Romaleos 3 XD features a honeycomb-patterned plate for stability, while Flywire technology and a dynamic strap provides a supportive fit during your workout.

But that is OK, we’re not going to put a lot of “mileage” on our weightlifting shoes. You’re not going to wear these for a casual stroll around the neighborhood – or anywhere else.

Squatting in Chucks? A lot of old school trainees squat in the Converse Chuck Taylor (or “Chucks” as they are lovingly known) style of shoe. These have a non-existent heel to toe drop, but they do have a somewhat rigid heel and sole (compared to running shoes). They are cheap, and readily available, but you do not get the benefit of the raised heel. They also are not as rigid and stable as weightlifting shoes.

Weightlifting Shoes are made for Olympic Weightlifting

With all these advantages – it’s a given that weightlifting shoes are essential gear for Olympic weightlifting.

Ever seen someone on the competition platform in running shoes?

USA Weightlifting- a competitor on the platform sporting weightlifting shoes with a raised heel

Take a look at some pictures of competitors – they’re all sporting raised heel, strapped in weightlifting shoes on the platform.

This is because there’s a huge amount of squatting in the olympic lifts – because the bar always starts on the floor. Both the clean and jerk and the snatch are a lot easier with these shoes.

And of course we know that Olympic lifters do a lot of high bar, deep squatting to build strength in preparation for the competition movements.

Weightlifting shoes and the Oly lifts are a match made in heaven.

Weightlifting Shoes – Also Great for Powerlifting Squats

OK, so these are a required item for Oly lifting, but who else can benefit?

The Front Squat exercise, using a barbell.

They are also great for heavy squats of any sort.

So whether you are practicing for the Oly lifts – or simply building strength with the high bar squat, low bar squat, or front squat variations – you can benefit from the solid, raised heel.

Much of the current revival of interest in squat shoes is thanks to Mark Rippetoe’s Starting Strength program – he’s a strong proponent of proper lifting shoes.

How about for deadlifting?

Having a stable sole is great for deadlifting, but this movement does not really require any ankle flexion – so the raised heel is of no benefit.

You will often see that many people prefer to deadlift in bare feet or flat-bottomed, solid heel shoes such as the iconic Chuck Taylors for precisely this reason.

This isn’t to say you can’t deadlift in weightlifting shoes – it’s just not an essential.

Deadlifting can be done in weightlifting shoes - but is not strictly necessary to wear them, as there is less need for ankle range of motion.

It’s also possible to develop better ankle flexibility – and range of motion. Squatting in flat sole shoes will help improve this and can eliminate some of the benefit of the raised heel. But you still need a solid heel, not a spongy one.

Plates under your heels? In the olden days we squatted with the smaller 2.75 lb. plates under our heels (or a board). This gave the same effect as the raised heel of a proper weightlifting shoe – but it was hard to get the plates in the right position – and awkward to keep them there. This is a practice that is best left to the history books, as this was before proper training shoes were affordable and readily available over the Internet. A proper weightlifting shoe is a much better choice.

Cons of Weightlifting Shoes

Ok, weightlifting shoes are great for lifting weights.

But, they aren’t good for much else.

CrossFit Training? You might want to look at cross trainers like the Nike Metcon 4 XD instead. These work well enough for lifting weights, but are much better for the diverse activities that the CrossFit WOD requires – such as sprinting, box jumps, double unders, rope climbs, and more.

It can’t all be rosy – after all, every design feature is a tradeoff.

Being built for rigidity and stability, they are heavy.

And that sky-high heel raise makes running (or jumping) in them an impossibility.

Not that you would want to anyways, the minimal cushioning means that would be a frightful experience.

They also aren’t as breathable as running shoes.

There’s no light-weight, mesh knit uppers in these shoes.

They wear out quicker – particularly in the sole where all that grippy, high-traction rubber is.

And lastly, they are pretty expensive, compared to main stream shoes.

But, again, they are still the best option for serious weightlifting.

The Best Shoes for Weightlifting in 2019

Now that we know what to look for – let’s look at the best weightlifting shoes for 2019. We’ll call out those special features we explained above.

Nike Weightlifting Shoes 2019

Nike has one weightlifting shoe for 2019: the Nike Romaleos 3 XD.

This is considered a classic weightlifting shoe.

First, you can see the raised heel. It gives a 20mm offset – which is right where we’d expect it to be.

Side view of the Nike Romaleos 3 XD Weightlifting shoe - Mens - Designed for elite-level lifting, the Nike Romaleos 3 XD features a honeycomb-patterned plate for stability, while Flywire technology and a dynamic strap provides a supportive fit during your workout.

Is it rigid? Yep.

But, Nike has done things the smart way. The heel is built from a honeycombed TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) structure.

This gives a maximum of firmness and stability with a minimum of weight.

TPU is a hybrid material – a mixture between hard plastic and soft silicone.

Weightlifting shoes are pretty heavy, when compared to normal shoes, and so we welcome the use of advanced materials to lighten these up.

Nike claims a pair of size 10 weigh 14.4 ounces/408 grams.

The midfoot strap is there for a locked in feel – and it looks sharp because it is emblazoned with “NIKE”.

But the Romaleos 3 XD takes things a step further.

This shoe also incorporates Nike’s Flywire.

Flywire are light-weight, but tough, polymer filaments that run through the upper of the shoe and integrate with the laces. When you tighten the laces the Flywire tightens up the structure of the shoe.

The Nike Romaleos 3 XD have Flywire - for the ultimate in locked in fit and feel.

Both things together take locked-in fit and feel to a whole new level.

Another unique selling point for these shoes – they come with two interchangeable insoles for soft or firm support, as you desire.

Top view of the Nike Romaleos 3 XD - Mens - Designed for elite-level lifting, the Nike Romaleos 3 XD features a honeycomb-patterned plate for stability, while Flywire technology and a dynamic strap provides a supportive fit during your workout.

These simply drop right in to the shoe – find the one you like the most, and stick with it. Or switch them up.

By the way, last year’s model is an excellent shoe as well.

With the XD having just been released, you can still find the Nike Romaleos 3 for a steep discount.

Another color option of the The Nike Romaleos 3 Weightlifting/Powerlifting Shoe delivers the stability and locked-in fit you need for intense weight training. Interchangeable insoles provide soft or firm support to match the needs of your regimen.

But, these won’t last long.

Quantities are limited and soon it will be hard to find your size.

So, if you want an outstanding weightlifting shoe on the cheap – grab a pair now.

Nike’s options are all high-end – because there is only one option.

Let’s look at what Adidas has to offer.

Adidas Weightlifting Shoes 2019

Unlike Nike, Adidas has several weightlifting shoe options.

There are options across the board to fit any budget.

First, we’ll start with a legend – or the newest version of a legend.

The Adidas AdiPower II Weightlifting Shoe is the second version of a classic Adidas lifting shoe.

Shown here in the Collegiate Royal / Core Black color combination, you can see that it is a good looking shoe.

But, more importantly you can see the raised heel. Adidas claims the 20.1mm heel to toe drop is optimal for Olympic lifting.

We can see a mid-sole strap as well – to make sure the shoe fits perfect.

The woven upper also makes for a comfortable and breathable fit.

It is also available in Core Black.

ADIDAS ADIPOWER WEIGHTLIFTING II SHOE - MEN'S - in Black

Let’s look at the the Adidas Leistung 16 2.0 Weightlifting Shoe.

Leistung is German for “power”.

First, these are a premium pair of weightlifting shoes.

Adidas Leistung 16 II weightlifting shoes - From deadlifts to cleans, serious weightlifters need shoes that support their efforts to achieve maximum lifts. These weightlifting shoes have a mesh upper with a comfortable, glove-like fit that is easy to break in.

Let’s start with the upper (the “top” of the shoe.) You can see it is constructed of a breathable mesh (“Powerweave”) – this is a unique feature amongst weightlifting shoes.

Adidas Leistung 16 II weightlifting shoe with Boa closure system.

And of course it has the classic Adidas three stripes design.

How about the midfoot strap?

This shoe has the “Boa” closure system.

It is the equivalent of the strap on other shoes, and supports micro adjustments.

That’s “boa” as in “boa constrictor”.

The midsole is made with TPU – which means you’ll have the firm and stable support you expect in a squat shoe.

The rear foot cradle also helps with the stability of this shoe.

Adidas calls it a “Weightlifting-engineered chassis.”

How about the heel to toe drop?

It is 24.8 mm – nearly a full 1″.

This shoe is one of the best options for those looking for the maximum in heel raise.

Adidas Leistung 16 II weightlifting shoe - an advanced weightlifters shoe.

By the way, the specs list the heel height as 37.5mm. That’s because that includes the height of the insole as well.

These have a flat rubber sole for maximum surface area.

The sole provides plenty of traction – and is made for indoor surfaces, as you’d expect.

And that is Adidas’ most advanced weightlifting shoe for 2019. But it is also the most expensive.

Let’s move on and look at budget-friendly options, if you are looking for a budget weightlifting shoe option.

Adidas Power Perfect 3 Weightlifting Shoe - SUPPORTIVE SHOES THAT GIVE LIFTERS THE EDGE.
Adidas Power Perfect 3 – A great budget weightlifting shoe.

The Adidas Power Perfect 3 is a new weightlifting shoe from Adidas.

A quick glance shows just what you’d expect from a weightlifting shoe: a high raised heel and a hook-and-loop (aka Velcro) instep strap.

It’s also got an integral heel support for additional stability.

What’s the drop? 25.9 mm.

Weight is 17.9 ounces.

And you can’t see the die cut wedge midsole, which is high density and offers plenty of support

User reviews indicate these fit wider feet better than the older Adipower shoe – so, if you had problems with that, you may want to give these a try.

Let’s look at the next weightlifting shoe from Adidas.

New for 2019, the Adidas Powerlift 4 features an updated, narrower fit with a die-cut midsole wedge, rubber outsole, and wide instep strap for maximum, lockdown stability. It’s available here in red with the Adidas stripes in white.

The Adidas Powerlift 4 is a slightly more affordable option.

Besides being less expensive these are a better option for those needing a narrow fit

Otherwise, we see what you’d expect to see – raised heel, instep strap, etc.

The upper (the part that covers the foot) is synthetic leather with an air mesh collar and tongue.

The Adidas Powerlift 4 is brand new for 2019.

You can still get the previous year’s model at a slight discount – but act fast as inventory will dry up quickly and your size will be hard to find. The Adidas Powerlift 3.1 is still an excellent weightlifting shoe – and a great bargain.

Adidas Powerlift 3 Weightlifting Shoe for men

Let’s look at options from Reebok.

Reebok Weightlifting Shoes 2019

Reebok offers the Legacy Lifter shoe.

The Reebok Legacy LIfter weightlifting shoe from Reebok

Reebok’s premium entry in the field has a 22mm drop and the heel clip is extra firm TPU – this helps make the shoe a rock-solid platform.

Surprisingly, the grippy outsole rubber has been tested and it is claimed to last up to seven years.

Here’s the outsole (or just plain sole):

You’d get a lot of use out of this pair of shoes.

For weight, these clock in at just over 20 ounces.

That’s pretty heavy.

Reebok also has a budget weightlifting shoe – the Reebok Lifter PR.

These have a very mild heel to toe drop of only 15.5mm.

Reebok Lifter PR weightlifting shoe for men

So, you can see that the best weightlifting shoes have a lot in common, and now you know what important features to look for.

Let’s switch gears now and talk about how you use these shoes.

Gym Backpack for Weightlifting Shoes

Ok, we’ve looked at some great weightlifting shoe options.

But, as we mentioned they are really specialized and you don’t want to wear them out.

Nor are they comfortable for every day wear.

We recommend you pack them in the gym bag and put them on when you need to lift, and then back off again.

 Combining super-tough materials with innovative design results in a truly great backpack - the dedicated shoe compartments on this great gym backpack let you transport weightlifting shoes without taking up valuable internal space.

The Backpack II from King Kong apparel is the perfect solution.

First, this is one tough backpack – made from Mil Spec 1000D Nylon.

But, what we like most are the dedicated shoe compartments.

These are intelligently designed to help preserve valuable internal space.

These external compartments also help ensure the shoes dry out after use.

Available in a variety of colors, this is a great gym backpack or gym bag solution.

This is the best way to transport your weightlifting shoes to and from the gym or box – and keep the “mileage” off these specialized shoes.

The other thing we LOVE about this bag – it’s a lay flat packing bag.

Stop trying to jam your weightlifting gear into a laptop bag – a duffel style, flat packing bag is a better choice.

And by the way, you can still pack a laptop in it, if you need to.

Backpack II model has an intelligent duffle style, flat pack opening for optimal packing.  Both Backpacks provide protection for a 15" laptop

Ok, let’s get back to the shoes.

Do-Win Classic Lifter – Weighlifting Shoes 2019

We’ve got one more option for you. It’s a brand you might not have ever heard about, but they make an excellent, no-frills weightlifting shoe.

The Do-Win Classic Lifter, shown here in red, is a great weightlifting shoe.

The Do-Win Classic Lifter includes a suede and mesh upper with a rounded toe shape (just like the old-school version had). Two hook-and-loop tarsal straps + nylon webbing backers ensure a firm, custom fit, and each heel is crafted from stacked layers of genuine leather. Like the originals, the effective heel-to-toe drop of the Do-Win is approx. 0.75 inch (19mm).

Heel to toe drop is .75″ (19mm).

The .75" (19mm) raised heel on the Rogue Do-Win Classic Lifter is the secret to a great lifting shoe - it also looks good because it is made with layers of stacked leather.

This “classic” show eschews modern composite material for the heel – it’s crafted from layers of stacked leather.And it looks great.

Midfoot strap with hook and loop (“velcro”) closure is in place.

And we have a super grippy sole as well.

The Do-Win Classic Lifter is available in red, blue, or black.

The Rogue Do-Win Classic Lifter weightlifting shoe is available in red, blue, and black colors.

In Summary – Best Weightlifting Shoes

If you are doing serious Olympic weightlifting training a proper pair of weightlifting shoes is essential.

Adidas, Nike, and Reebok all offer shoes with the features we need – solid, rigid sole, raised heel, and midsole straps.

Nike makes only one weightlifting shoe – the Nike Romaleos 3 XD. But it works so well there’s not really a need for another model.

Adidas has more options to accommodate any budget. The Adidas shoes tend to have more heel to toe drop.

Lastly, Reebok has two options for weightlifting shoes.

Grab a pair of weightlifting shoes today and see your technique and lifts improve.
