Feels like a slight step back from the p3 after 1 week.

I've used the p3 phantoms for about a year now. They're a great pair of lifters with a fantastic wood heel, but are already falling apart despite following the care instructions that come with every pair. The P3+ has more of an upward curve in the toe, which I'm not a big fan of but isn't the biggest deal in the world. The rubber coating on the bottom of the wood heel is attached much better than it is one the 3s but the wood heel on one of my P3+'s is already falling apart after 1 week of use. The shoe laces are also the same, easy to break ones from the P3s. The performance and feel are great but the inconsistency in durability and short life span are kind of a let down. This is my 2nd and probably last pair of position lifters.

Very nice but very narrow

The shoes are really nice and beautifully made super high quality, and the big tall heel is great, but they are way too narrow in the front, definitely would say that if you have wide feet don't go with them.

Faq
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.

Why do you use a solid wood heel?

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 indicates 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 allows the maximum force out ofthe materials currently available to produce heels on weightlifting shoes.

How do Position shoes fit?

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. FOR MORE SIZING INFORMATION - please view our Size Chart.
