by LincolnB Comfortable but not a great shoe
I've been doing the Olympic lifts for 15 years, most of that in a competitor's shoe. Those shoes are now in semi-retirement, after several trips to the cobbler. These Reeboks fit my foot better but they don't seem to have the best quality materials; they seem plasticky in comparison. The attention to detail is lacking compared to my old shoes. I'm not a fan of the double strap across the top, either. (My old shoes had a carbon-graphite TRIPLE strap. Cool looking but annoying to put on/take off. And eventually 4 of the strap buckles broke.)
I was given these as a gift. I would not pay full price for them.

by Ivana Awesome pair of oly shoes
These shoes fits perfectly and was very happy I found my size which is uk 2.5 so it's pretty difficult to buy shoes for me. As soon as I put them on hit my PB back squat. Massive difference to squat in these bad boys. Highly recommend to anyone who is passionate about lifting heavy and improving every rep :)
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stephiemarie These shoes provide great stability.
I'm really glad I purchased these lifters. I especially notice a difference with squats; the raised heel allows for more ankle flexibility which let's me get deeper in the squat. In the first two weeks I pr'd my back squat and snatch, both of which were at a stand still for about 6 months. Definitely worth the money! Not to mention, shipping was free and crazy fast. I ordered them on a Thursday and received them on Saturday!
Rated 5 out of 5 by cherryblue Best shoes for weight lifting
I have never worn shoes specifically for weight lifting before so I have nothing to compare these to but in my opinion they are perfect. I loved my crossfit nanos for lifting weights but as soon as I put the lifters on I felt the difference right away. I felt a million times more stable and grounded - honestly I felt like a tree rooted to the ground!! I was able to squat lower and felt so much more stable in my lunges which in turn allowed me to lift heavier. My form benefited greatly in all my lifts whilst wearing these shoes. To each his own but I wouldn't want to do anything more than a light warm up jog in these though as when you run it feels a bit like you are wearing mens business shoes! well it felt that way to me but maybe I'm spoiled from the lightness of my nanos! In my opinion these shoes run true to size I'm a UK 5 in shoes and always get my trainers in UK 5.5 and these are perfect for me in that size. They are nice and wide so your toes have room to move whilst the velcro straps mould the shoes to your foot nicely. They look a little strange at first with very round toes but you quickly get used to the way they look and I actually think they look really nice now I've worn them for a few weeks. Get them you won't regret it they really help you make gains.

I always wanted to know what was the craic with these shoes, but the difference is amazing. This is my first pair and I strongly recommend anyone thinking of buying a pair to buy them
Rated 5 out of 5 by TinaG The CrossFit Lifter Plus is good quality
Your toe will be very close to the top of the shoe, you may want to think about maybe getting a 1/2 size larger. Other than that, the shoe is comfortable, sturdy, secures your feet very well, and worth purchasing.

Very good lifting shoes, great support and good fit
Rated 5 out of 5 by Carioca11 These lifters are simply badass!
I normally wear an 8, but got these in a 7.5 and they fit perfectly. They are simply amazing for many of the Olympic lifts found in Crossfit. They provide you with an amazing base and platform and have helped me hit several new PRs. Surprisingly light and agile enough for some minor moves like bar facing burpees, they preformed admirably during WOD 14.5 of The Open. I'd love to see a few different color options and if they were a customizable shoe I would have designed my own! Great and necessary buy if your going to make CF a long-term thing.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beefwithburpees Hesitant at first due to price point but trusted in the return policy. So excited and very pleased with the purchase. Ordered and received very quickly. Free shipping is always nice.
Rated 5 out of 5 by frikinlemonade LOVE THESE LIFTERS!
I was absolutely blown away by these shoes! I knew they would help with my oly lifting, but they really make all the difference. So much more stability, deeper squats, don't rock forward or backward, great for pistols. They fit perfectly and definitely exceeded my expectations. I recommend these to everyone.
