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.  Please note the new model of the Sabo Deadlift has a tighter fit than the older model. If in between sizes we recommend going with the larger size. 

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. 

Main Features

  • Anatomical design created specifically for deadlifting.
  • Non-marking outsole made of high denisty material with a special design for traction.
  • High cut upper and materials that are optimal for training.


  • The soles are thin and flat to decrease pulling distance.  A thin sole means the barbell is higher up from the floor relative to the athlete.  This allows for more weight to be lifted since the pulling distance becomes shorter.
  • Specialized footwear protects the feet from injuries related to heavy lifting.   Protects the athletes feet from flattening of the arches.
  • This shoe provides maximum stability for the ankle.
  • The soles are made from materials that do not have any give which results in a good surface to push against.  The pattern on the outsole minimizes slipping.

Great shoe

Great shoe. Used this for squats and felt very secure. One of the best flats in my opinion for all 3 lifts

I use these for bench and deads, they are comfortable and well made. I like the grip they provide and the fit is perfect. I wear a size 41 in my Nike lifters and the Sabo Pros are also a 41. I have a narrow foot and the Sabos are a tighter fit, which I appreciate, and the metatarsal strap provides a secure fit.

Sabo Deadlift shoes

I love these shoes. I’ve been using them for all my lifts and they’re great.

Awesome shoe for all three lifts.

I have been doing all three lifts in these shoes for a few weeks. I have used them on a rubber gym floor as-well as living room carpet. I have found the grip to be better than any other shoe I have worn. They are very light and flexible. This is nice for squats as I feel I very grounded and I can grip the floor easily. In the past I deadlifted in the Sabo Goodlift. When comparing the two in that lift I find the Goodlift to be much stiffer and more solid. If you are choosing between the two the foot feel of stiff vs flexy is the major difference I noticed. I wear the same size in the Goodlift and the Pro. The Pro fits more snug, but due to the nature of the material it is made from it does not feel restricting. I love how well they grip the floor on bench. I don't have to worry about my feet slipping and loosing any arch. I typically compete in a heeled shoe during bench to maintain better heel contact and haven't decided if I will make the switch to this shoe on the platform. Overall this is a great shoe for all the lifts and is comfortable enough to keep on in the gym for other exercises as-well.
