If you’re serious about your weightlifting training, you’ll appreciate the importance of finding the best pair of weightlifting shoes. They provide the solid base essential for safe and effective lifting, and can help increase your lifting capacity. At Industrial Athletic, we offer one of the leading selections of weightlifting shoes in New Zealand, stocking top brands including Do Win and Inov-8.
Weightlifting Shoe Features
Some of the best weightlifting shoes have an external heel cage, which provides enhanced lateral stability and gives you a really solid base for lifting. Elevating the heel projects your centre of gravity forward, allowing you to get better depth on squats. Power heels can further increase stability while lifting and most Olympic weightlifting shoes have a 40% denser heel.
Weightlifting shoes also need to have superb grip, while still being very lightweight, and many of our shoes make use of the latest technology and materials. Some of our weightlifting shoes on sale are so flexible that you can use the same one for your Olympic weightlifting as well as for other functional movements.
Weightlifting Shoe Fitting
Olympic weightlifting shoes should fit tightly. The heel cup should be close fitting to provide support and stability, while the front area should allow sufficient room for your toes to spread out while lifting or training. Before you buy weightlifting shoes, make sure that you measure your feet correctly. To do this stand upright on a ruler wearing the socks you train in and measure accurately from toe to heel. For a really exact, custom fit, some models have a dial system which permits micro-adjustability, without stretching the shoe.
