Nike Savaleos – Overview
One of Nike Savaleos’ best features is its flat, wide base with the same design as the Romaleos. This feature offers excellent stability to give you security when you are carrying heavyweights. It also has the durability and versatility of Metcon for cross-training. The Savaleos is lighter and multi-functional, making it perfect both for lifting and workouts.
Instead of two, Savaleos has a single fastening strap to minimize the weight of the shoe. It has a wide, stiff sole that guarantees contact with the ground, giving superior power transfer from the base and stability during lifting sessions. The Savaleos offers a lower drop of 12.7 mm, which is lower than the Romaleos, making it lighter and more versatile for weightless training.
The Savaleos also features a Hand Stand Push Up (HSPU) clip to ensure you can do HSPU with minimum resistance against the wall. The wide strap, laces, and padded tongue provide a tight yet relaxed fit for the entire foot’s maximum support. The upper is lightweight and has holes for faster performance and breathability. The outsole of Savaleos is similar to the Romaleos, having slip-resistant rubber to guarantee grip.
