Notre inventaire de chaussures Notorious Lift est en constante évolution et la disponibilité de nombreuses couleurs est limitée. Si la taille que vous désirez n'apparaît plus en option, il est probable que nous ne réapprovisionnons pas cette taille dans cette couleur.


If you ask most lifters what's the first thing you should get for equipment for training the answer will often be shoes. Look around at other sports, do you see football or baseball players playing in running shoes, no, they are wearing the right shoes for the sport. Stop trying to lift heavy in soft, squishy shoes. The Notorious Lift line of lifting slippers puts you as close to the ground as possible, removing any instability from a soft shoe. 

Execution is at the forefront of the design for Sumo Sole Gen 2.5. The slipper features their newly designed Fortis sole that infuses the strengths of their two existing soles. They took the ultra-thin thickness of the Notorious Lifters and paired it with the Sumo Sole’s brawny side lateral wall. They found a happy medium for the lateral height that would be comfortable to wear for the duration of a workout but would also prevent any spillage during heavy pulls.

Key Features:

  1. Ultra-thin sole (2.7mm) with a wide toebox for enhanced sensory feedback and less pulling distance.
  2. Special blend of rubber for a lighter, more durable and enhanced flexibility feel without sacrificing comfort.
  3. AdvanKnit features a lightweight, breathable stretch knit that contours to your feet while still providing a tight feel to ensure proper lockdown and comfortability.
  4. Custom milled nylon strap with a rubber tab strategically placed on the metatarsal for complete lockdown.
  5. Internal and external heel counters that confidently anchors your heel down to prevent over-pronation.

Great shoe and great service

Fast shipping and they gave me some great deals, ended up buying these shoes and then over the next couple days I think I spent around $500 in total. Would recommend gojng a size down in the slippers but still love them!

Inner strength is tops

So far, they are comfy (almost feels like wearing slippers!). Wore them for bench and they have great grip. Looking forward to deadlift day!

Excellent Deadlift Shoes

Love these shoes already. I was told the 2.0’s are even grippier but the 2.5’s do not budge. Comfort was there as you’d expect from a slipper without being loose. Generous toe box for those with wider feet like me, and little to no heel lift when walking. Fit is true to size, consistent with my other athletic shoes, going down one size might have left the toe on my longer foot right against the end. My only criticism would be with respect to the strap, I believe another reviewer also noted that it is either too long or designed for people with very tall feet. Pulling the strap even a little left it with less than half the Velcro to hold on to, partly because the upper material is so flexible. It also looks funny with a huge portion of the strap dangling off the side. Would have made more sense to shorten the strap and/or extend the Velcro all the way to the edge of the sole. Would still give this product 5 stars as the strap isn’t really necessary when you’re in sumo deadlift stance. Cannot speak to using these shoes for more active movements. Would definitely buy again, the colourways are sick and they look great on foot. Just need to shout out Inner Strength as well, amazing customer service from people who actually lift and use their own products, and the shipping is extraordinarily fast - great when you want to hit the gym immediately with your new gear!

a great quality shoe! the person I gifted them to loves them. We did have an issue with the metal loop on the strap breaking, but inner strength has top-tier customer service and is sending us a new pair to replace the broken ones. Cannot recommend this product and Inner Strength enough!

So Good!

Love the grip and comfort. The best barefoot slipper for lifting in. Makes you feel super secure.
