Adidas.com has a clearance sale on the Powerlift 3.1 Trainer shoes, marked down from $90 to $63

My total with taxes came out to $47.89

I would consider this an excellent deal for the entry level to intermediate Weightlifter trying to progress their heavy lifts, through the additional stability provided by these shoes

Aside from the gym floor being nasty, how do these Powerlift shoes compare to deadlifting in socks? I've been eyeing lifting shoes (Adipower) for a while, but have never had a chance to try a pair of Adipowers or these Powerlifts.

Edit: only socks during the actual exercises, with runners being slipped on between exercises or if adding plates.

​I truthfully believe that "the flatter, the better" when it comes to dead-lifting.
In this case, these shoes would probably not be the best option as they have a slightly elevated heel :
They are essentially squat shoes

Agreed. I deadlift in Converse high tops. Balance and support never an issue and still progressing in weight

I picked these shoes up and they lasted two extremely light workouts before the sole started to separate on the toe. I decided to keep using them anyways. A few workouts more and the heel separated. I might of had a bad one, but I was completely disappointed with how poorly this shoe was made.

Thanks for the feedback, I hope I don't suffer the same fate 😮

I own the Reebok legacy lifters and only use them to squat, as for dead lifts, bear feet or flat footed shoes

These shoes are mostly meant for squats as it helps adjust your center of mass for a more stable deeper squat. This would hurt your deadlift form as you'll have to lean forward more due to the lifted heel. Use converse or wrestling shoes for cheap but effective deadlifting shoes.

Wish I had money to buy these :/

I have a similar older pair. They are incredible for deadlifts and squats.

I've had the 3.0 for... A year and a half or so? Great shoe.

I would recommend going a half size up though, I wear an 11 for ultra boosts, but these are quite snug at 11.


If you struggle with ankle mobility on squats these are a godsend. I also deadlift in them, but as others have mentioned I do think deadlifting is better barefoot or with very flat shoes.

The only reason to deadlift barefoot is so you will not have to lift the bar the extra 1 inch that shoes will raise your feet off the floor. If you are not in a power lifting competition, then that extra inch isn't going to make much of a difference.

Yeah just a 0.5-1 in deficit. Should actually help one's training.

I've had these for about 16 months now. Great deal at this price. I scooped them up for about $40 on an Amazon coupon mistake. But the black color are these are a lot better.

Great shoes. Super durable. I could see using these for 5+ years squatting 1-2X/week with them. I wouldn't use them for anything else. Metcons and Chucks are much better for other lifts.
