Product Details

The R1 Powerlifting Shoe

We designed the R1 model to be the perfect fit for any powerlifter/general lifter looking for that competitive edge. The R1 features a ½ inch solid wood heel and is hand-made using natural suede leather.

Each pair is individually handcrafted giving every single shoe its own distinctive qualities. Hours of manual labor go into constructing each shoe, which takes over a full day to finish. The process starts with the tapered wood wedge, which is carved out of its original wood block, and finishes at the last stitch on the leather. As a result, your pair will be unique as you are.
