Inov8 335 shoe review by Jared:
As others have stated, these shoes make me feel like I am strapped to the floor. The first day I wore them I added 20 lbs to my front squat PR. But, the PR was from a one rep max and that first day in these shoes we did a 3 second hold at the bottom followed by one more normal front squat, boom! I added 20lbs about three weeks after that PR. In addition, my deads are stronger, snatches feel better, and even wall balls get love. I did run 200 meters in the Inov-8 Fastlift 335 Cross-Training Shoe
and it wasn’t too bad, I wouldn’t run much further in them. Another bonus is these shoes will help your deep squat mobility. They are not simply a cheat or crutch. For example, if I put these on and sit in a deep squat it’s much easier than in my nanos but also perfect form. If I use theses for a workout that is squat intensive I am able to egg low and have perfect form. But, it’s as if my body is learning from that correct form. After one of those workouts I will put my nanos back on and will be able to squat with perfect form whereas that was not possible before I got these shoes. Get them, you will not regret it.

Adidas Powerlift 2.0 shoe review by Billy:
Overall, the shoes are amazing. I feel so much better squatting in these than in Chuck’s or any normal sneakers. They are COMFORTABLE. I am size 10 1/2, with wide feet. For Chuck’s I need to go 11 1/2, but at that size they look like clown shoes and STILL feel a little narrow. I got the Adidas Powerlift 2.0 Trainer Shoe in 11, and they fit PERFECTLY. Seriously, even my perfectly fitted NB 10 1/2 EE running shoes don’t feel as amazing as these. The inside is soft and comfortable. I still prefer Chucks for deadlifting, but I will never squat again without these amazing shoes.
$135 retail.

Powerlift 3.0 review  by JL:
This is my first pair of Weightlifting shoes, and I highly recommend them for anyone looking to improve their lifts. Over the past two weeks I’ve had them I’ve done squats, cleans, jerks, push presses, overhead squats, snatches, and bench with them. Feel really great on high-bar squats, a little weird for low-bar (might be just my technique, but I felt like I was pushed too far forward). The main attraction is how stable you feel in them as compared to regular tennis shoes, feels like your feet are melded to the ground. If you’re looking for a great lifting shoe but don’t want to blow a ton of money, these are an excellent option.
