PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS

The Adidas Powerlift 4 is a great entry-level weightlifting shoe with a moderate heel-to-toe drop and enough flexibility for multiple uses. The EVA midsole won’t be as rigid as something like TPU or wood, but it’s sturdy enough for people moving moderate weights. They give great platform feedback and are a good transition shoe to acclimate to a higher heel in the future.

Pros & Cons

What we like ...
  • Reasonably priced at about $100
  • EVA midfoot and flexible forefoot make it a more versatile shoe for beginners
  • 0.6” (15.5mm) heel wedge is easier to acclimate to than a standard 0.75” (19mm) heel
What needs improvement ...
  • Narrow heel base isn’t the most stable compared to other options
  • Very limited color options
  • EVA foam midsole is more compressible than those made of TPU, wood, or leather
