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.

I own 20+ pair of weightlifting shoes but I only wear Position's. Why? They're durable, flexible, & have a classic look to them. Go grab a pair but be careful...It'll be the last pair you ever want!
I own 30+ pairs of weightlifting shoes. Not just saying this, these are definitely on the top of my list. Each batch gets better than the last. The Eastwood's feels like you are stuck to the platform.
