Great shoes! My ankles have a tendency to collapse during heavy squats and my feet needed much support, these shoes provided exactly what I needed.
My previous weightlifting shoes were the classic Do-Win's with a wooden sole. They were good, but they were very heavy and were starting to fall apart. I found Inner Strength Products and I found these and gave them a shot. There were my very first order with ISP. First off, I can't say enough about how impressed I was with the shipping. I ordered on a Monday and they had arrived by Wednesday. I do live in the same province, but still, that is incredible, especially during the usual world of pandemic shipping delays. Second the shoes... I didn't think my old Do-Win's were low cut, but compared to these, they were. They were also super worn in and I hadn't bought new lifting shoes for a while. The first few times I wore them, the support around the ankle was surprisingly high, very stiff and uncomfortable around my ankle 'nubs', but within a few workouts, they had worked in and now I don't notice it. My feet feel totally secure and stable in these. To ensure this, I actually take my time doing them up. I make sure to push my heel right to the back before tightening the laces, then I push the front of my foot down and do up the front strap, and finally the back strap to lock it all in. As far as lifting shoes go, they are quite comfortable (after the break in time mentioned above). For those who haven't bought lifting shoes before... they are not meant for comfort so maybe my 'comfortable' should be in quotes. They are meant to lift your heel to allow for better range of motion and stability and these shoes excel at that. I would highly recommend these to anyone looking for lifting shoe (first time or long time lifter) and you can't go wrong with purchasing through Inner Strength Products, the shipping time alone makes it worth it.
Very happy with these shoes, great addition to the collection!
I always have trouble finding well fitting shoes because of my wide feet (pretty much write of Nikes completely), and these shoes fit awesome. The raised heel allows me to stay more upright in my squats and increases my range of motion, giving me significantly more quad involvement in my squats. Had to drop my 5x5s down 20lbs after putting these on because I was finally hitting that much better of depth. Highly recommend these
They came by mail superbly package 10/10 inner strength. Shoes are through to euro size. These are for people with humongous foot especially on the heel part. They simply to big unfortunately and I ad to return them. The return procedure is super intuitive and easy via the website. Very please with the customer service.
