Re: Adidas Adipower Weightlifting Shoes- $129 for Certified Trainers

Jordan,

If they ever get your size in stock at adidas.ca (WFS) they are actually $170 CDN and when you sign up you get 10-20% off which actually makes them a pretty good deal. I checked, right now all they have are size 7. Patience.....

Re: Adidas Adipower Weightlifting Shoes- $129 for Certified Trainers

Wow they are 170 on .ca. Looks like they actually do have some size 10's in stock. Tempting. I do need some new lifting shoes, my current ironworks II the wood at the back of the heel is scraped away at a 45 degree angle. Got a lot of good years out of em.

Re: Adidas Adipower Weightlifting Shoes- $129 for Certified Trainers

These were in sale at the local Dick's Sporting Goods for $49 or $59 a week or so ago.
I know because a kid at my gym ended up getting a pair. He said they were on clearance AND he got an additional 20% off

$144.50 with the sign up and save. Plus tax of course but I think free shipping too.

I have a pair and really like them. Only complaint is that they are really red. Only others that I have tried that I liked similarly were the Romaleos but they are very pricey.

Re: Adidas Adipower Weightlifting Shoes- $129 for Certified Trainers

I'm down for that. I read a lot of reviews and was interested in the nikes. I have narrow feet though so these will fit better. How did you find the sizing on them? My true shoe size is 9.5. I normally buy 10's but I'm wondering if I wanna try 9.5 to have them fit snug.

I wear a 9.5 in the Nano 2.0's and a 9.0 in the Nano 3.0's, and went with a 9.0 in the Adipowers (since I didn't really want any excess wiggle room in them when I'm PR'ing anything overhead). I also went to Dick's and tried on a pair of Samba's beforehand, just to double check, as Adidas tends to be pretty consistent for size from shoe to shoe.

They're fantastic. Since I have wider flat feet, they were a bit snug for the first two weeks, but have definitely broken in since then.

Re: Adidas Adipower Weightlifting Shoes- $129 for Certified Trainers

I got my regular shoe size (8) and they fit fine. I wear an 8 in Nano 2.0's, I think my frees and my MX20's are an 8.5.
