Narrow, snug fit. Lightweight, locked-down feel. Lace closure with a hook-and-loop strap. Open forefoot and flexible toe design.
Olympic weightlifting shoes used to be simply designed: canvas, big ugly strap across the top, elevated heel. They were cheap too. Today you can find $200 weightlifting shoes with all the bells and whistles. But do you need that? Probably not. ADIDAS Powerlifts are old school. Their simple, platform-tested design will get the job done. – Chris Shugart
