Nike Romaleos 4 Olympic Weightlifting Shoe Review – Our Review
To test this product, we got hands-on and in-depth.
Here’s what we found:
The Romaleos 4 is a narrow, pointy shoe – just like the earlier version, the Metcon 3 XD. It is an Oly lifter, so it has a sky-high heel raise at 20mm to allow a deep squat position while minimizing the ankle flexibility needed. The insole, midsole, and heel are rock solid. The cloth upper is dense and tightly stitched. It is not soft and flexible like a running shoe or cross trainer to give you a sense of stability. The super-solid heel is still made from plastic but is now clear and formed in an organic-looking design. There’s still plenty of contact area because the plastic base flares out in the heel and forefoot, even if there is a hollowed-out center section.

Nike Romaleos 4 New Color – Overview
The Romaleos 4 is the fourth release of Nike’s most popular weightlifting shoes. It is an impressive Olympic weightlifting shoe developed for efficient power transfer, absolute stability, and a lockdown fit. This shoe is an excellent choice for those looking for a robust, aesthetically attractive weightlifting shoe.
This revamped design highlights a supportive midsole and a wide, flat outsole, with adjustable straps over the laces at the midfoot to secure the foot during high-intensity workouts. The significant heel-to-toe drop decreases the ankle flexion needed at the bottom of a lift.
The heel enables greater explosiveness off the ground when merged with the stiff midsole. The wide heel of the Romaleos 4 also forms a more stable foundation for heavy lifts, while the durable rubber treads provide valuable traction.
