Lifting Shoe Showdown: Adidas Adipowers vs Nike Romaleos 2

When it comes to olympic weightlifting shoes the two premium shoes are the Adidas Adipowers and the Nike Romaleos 2. Both shoes offer a 0.75″ heel at a similar price point, so the question is which is right for you?

Before we proceed, I want to re-iterate that these are the top of the line weightlifting shoes and for a beginner or intermediate lifter, a more entry level shoe such as the Adidas Powerlift 2 or Pendlay Weightlifting shoes will yield most of the benefit while being easier on the wallet.

The following YouTube video goes through the pros and cons of each shoe and will allow you to determine who’s the winner: Adidas Adipowers vs Nike Romaleos 2 — enjoy!
