Greetings fitness freaks! We are going to dive deep into which pair of shoes you need for weight lifting fit training (namely the Reebok Crossfit Lifter vs Adidas Powerlift Trainer.)
When it comes to any type of training (including martial arts) it is always a great idea to make sure you supplement weight training correctly. In order to make that happen, you need the right gear (hurting yourself is not good..)
Let’s get into the heart of this post!
Reebok Crossfit Lifter: The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly
The Next level up from their original Lifter Plus shoe, now with an (#sweet) adjustable strap to keep you locked in and comfortable!
- Well Made, awesome for any type of weightlifting.
- Will help experienced lifters gain a few pounds.
- Helps with stability in lifts and helps maintain proper form
- Run a bit narrow
- Might run a bit bigger than your typical shoe size.
Who should buy this product?
Serious weight lifters with some extra style and narrow feat.
Adidas Powerlift Trainer: What Ya Need to Know
Affordable shoe with lots of support to get the barbell where it is supposed to go!
The Good stuff:
- Super affordable for the quality you get
- More focused on olympic weightlifting (as opposed to say, crossfit.)
The Bad Stuff:
- Runs a bit narrow, don’t get these if you have wider feet.
- Toe narrows towards the front**
The Final Verdict
Both shoes are good buys. Frankly, if you put them against one another it is unlikely you’ll be able to tell the difference. What it comes down to is how do you plan to use the shoe.
If you are an olympic weight lifter with narrow feet, go with Crossfit Lifter. If you want an more “crossfit focused” shoe that is not as narrow, the Crossfit Lifter is a no brainer.
