Many newcomers to deadlifting and powerlifting use the wrong kind of shoe. People tend to bring running shoes to the gym and utilize them for every exercise they perform. Unfortunately, the majority of running and athletic shoes are extremely cushiony, which interferes with power output—you need a solid platform to push yourself away from when lifting. Cushy athletic shoes also negatively impact your stability during lifts.
However, this isn’t the case with Sabo shoes, which give you a stable, rigid platform to push yourself away from as you engage in your lift. Wearing Sabo powerlifting shoes is much safer than lifting without shoes or in your socks, and it helps minimize your risk of injury tremendously.
