Weightlifting shoes support your training with a precise level of support and stability. Key components of your weightlifting shoe include a low-profile construction, a hard, flat outsole and straps for a locked-in fit. Use these guidelines to find the footwear that’s right for you:
- Hard, high-density rubber midsoles provide a firm platform for your body to move weight. Plus, traction-optimized patterns securely grip mats, gym floors and other surfaces for peace of mind.
- Footwear construction goes from the inside out. Ultra-light midsoles can absorb shock without adding unnecessary bulk or weight to your weightlifting footwear.
- When it comes to weightlifting shoes, performance starts from the inside out. Look for an ultra-light midsole that absorbs some shock without adding bulk or weight to your shoe.
- Breathable uppers on your weightlifting shoes keep you cool and comfortable when the pressure is on. Many weightlifting shoes come with a blend of mesh and synthetic in the upper, though classic full-grain weightlifting shoes are also available. No matter your upper material, a snug, locked-in fit is critical for your performance. Straps along the outsole promote proper fit.
- An inner sockliner in your footwear enhances fit and comfort. Look for a sockliner treated to wick moisture away from your skin.
