SABO Deadlift is a specialized shoe for deadlifting and a great all-around lifting shoe for your strength workouts. It has been redesigned from the original version.
Improvements for this model include improved eyelet construction, a more durable metatarsal strap, a more breathable upper, a new outsole material providing improved durability and superior grip, and a tighter more glove like fit.
I have been wearing the Sabo deadlift shoes twice a week since April and they have been great and have held up well. Comfort, stability and breathability is there, while also allowing for me to feel the floor on deadlifts. More of a natural, minimal feel compared to something like chucks or vans that have a thicker sole.
I've been using the Sabo Deadlift shoes since April roughly 2x per week and they've been great. Sizing is pretty accurate. I get the comfort, stability, and breathability of the shoe which is awesome. I definitely have a good feel of the floor! Inner Strength is always fantastic to deal with and I will continue to do so!
My experience with this pair of sabo is that it feels natural quite frankly it feels like I’m barefoot. Which to me is very important but it also provides support where I didn’t think I would need it. 10/10 would recommend
They fit perfectly and keep me nice and low to the ground. The extra straps provide great support for the rest of my foot.
As always ordering through Inner strength products was simple with fast delivery. Ordered the Sabo Deadlift shoes in size 42 which is my regular size. Initially they felt very tight at my big toe; however my toe did not feel like it was pushing too much against the front of the shoe. Some comments suggested to size up and ideally I would have. That said, after a few uses I think there has been a bit of stretch and now they feel snug and right but overall comfortable. In terms of deadlifting with these things I am quite pleased. Previously a barefoot lifter I really like the support these are providing. Happy with the purchase and happy to purchase from Innerstrength!
