P3 Obsidian

  • The P3 is unlike any other lifting shoe on the market. Each pair is individually handcrafted giving every single shoe its own distinctive qualities. Hours of manual labor go into construction of each shoe which takes over a full day to finish, starting with the tapered wood wedge being carved out of its original wood block, down to the last stitch on the leather. As a result, your pair will be unique just like you.

    *ALL P3 Obsidian purchases include FREE shipping 

  • Heel and Sole Construction: 1) The revolutionary tapered wood-heel provides a solid foundation and a stable position. 2) Our high density wood heel enables maximum force throughout the lift* 3) The wood-heel is carved, shaped and stained by hand. The stain is black. 4) Effective heel-height is 1" (2.54 centimeters). 

    Upper Construction: 1) The upper is made with suede-leather. 2) Breathable toe box allows for more comfort. 3) Thick hook-and-loop strap using Velcro USA for better pull and stronger hold. 4) Mesh tongue and forming insole create a very comfortable fit.

      • Is a 1" effective heel height right for me? This seems higher than some other mass-produced brands?
      • Answer: Having a slightly higher effective heel height the average (appx. .75"), lifters could see the benefits of a more comfortable lift, better positioning and proper alignment. If you have mobility issues in your ankles, hips or shoulders, a higher heel height could help provide a better bar path and catch position.

      • What do you mean by 'maximize force'?
      • Answer: Heel construction tests have been performed to see how much force is applied (or lost) though the lift. After testing UVA, TMU and wood, wood outperformed TMU by a margin of 12 percentage points (.65 vs .77). A score of 1 is ideal for this test indicating zero-loss of force through absorption of the material. TMU is a synthetic plastic that you will find on major mass-produced brands. From these density tests, wood's density allows the maximum force out of the materials currently available to produce heels on weightlifting shoes.

      • How do they fit?
      • Answer: Our shoes fit true to size and we recommend ordering your regular shoe size. Please note: our Women lifters are true women's sizes. Thus, they are slightly more narrow than our men lifters. This is to create the same snug fit for women as we do for men. However, if you are a female with size E width or wider, we would suggest ordering a Men's size instead. This would be 1.5 sizes below your female size. For example, if you normally wear a Women's 8.5, we would suggest ordering a Men's size 7. See our Size Guide below for more information.

Best Lifters on the planet.

Before purchasing these shoes I had the opportunity to talk to Co-Owner Omar Isuf in person at the very well known ‘Barbell Brigade’ gym is Los Angeles, California. One of the very first questions I had for him was his thoughts about the 1” wooden heel and does it make a difference? Well when I purchased my shoes that same day we talk, I got them in the mail two days later. I was so pumped and excited to try them on that as soon as they were at my front door I opened the box put them on immediately. First impression. These shoes were worth every penny. So coming from the Adidas adipower weight lifting shoes with 3/4” plastic heel going to the 1” wooden heel you don’t know the difference besides the wooden heel and the height, but it’s not until you get under a bar that you see the difference. I’m a powerlifter. Main three, Squat, Bench, Deadlift. I won’t even walk into a gym if I don’t have my position shoes with me. I use them 2/3 lifts, Squat and Bench. My squats strength and bench strength has definitely increased and I know that the 1” heel has made that possible. Before Positions my squat PR was at 375lbs. Two months after using the P3’s I hit a 420lbs squat with great depth. And brought my sad 265lbs bench up to 300lbs within a month and half. As far as sizing, it’s literally like picking out your foot size, it’s perfect and accurate. I wear 11 1/2 and I’m 6’3” with the P3’s on 6’4” so they do make a difference for tall bois. Anyone have anything I can answer I’d be happy too help them become more knowledgeable about the best lifters on the planet!
