The Adidas Adipower III is the latest iteration of weightlifting shoe from the brand, and it doesn’t look to disappoint. With a 22-millimeter heel, a breathable upper, and TPU midsole, this is an improved design on an already great product.
While we weren’t huge fans of the Adipower IIs for serious weightlifters, we think the IIIs will be a hit among those who are serious about doing snatches and clean-and-jerks. Adidas took the OG Adipower and simply made a few changes – including an increased heel height – to give us perhaps the best version of this shoe yet.
Serious shoes come with a serious price, and the Adipower III clocks in around $220. However, we love that it’s available in both men’s and women’s sizes, and that the lace-and-strap closure system allows athletes to make the shoe as tight or wide as they need.
