      • Is a .5" effective heel height right for me? I'm used to a different size.
      • Answer: Having this size heel helps you maintain control like never before. You know our regular size heel, here's something that'll help the transition. The benefits of a more comfortable lift, better positioning, and proper alignment stay the same. If you have mobility issues in your ankles, hips or shoulders, a higher or lower 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.

With Grayskull "I HAVE THE POWER!!!"

As Battle Cat and I were racing toward Eternia, I couldn't help but notice that the wide toe box provided enchanting comfort for my princely feet. Unlike the cursed garments produced by Skeletor and his minions. Man-At-Arms and Beast Man couldn't help but be jealous as I stopped to flex in front of Teela. To sum it up, the Grayskull has made me feel like a real He-Man.

Best lifting shoe

I enjoy wearing these shoes during my time at the gym. They fit my feet well and provide better arch support than my Converse All-Stars. Would recommend to everyone.

Super happy with my purchase, AMAZING customer service

First thing’s first the customer service is amazing. I got great information as I was deciding to make my purchase. I chatted with multiple representatives who were all very knowledgeable and helpful. The shoes themselves (R1) are so stable I’m actually having to get used to it. On top of that my preorder came with lifting straps which are strong and comfortable. Although it felt like a big investment at first I’m super happy with my purchase.

Killer combo

Loving my R1 the quality of build nothing out there I’ve tried.. this isn’t your factory pump out shoes company. They take time and quality matters. The R1 are stable and comfortable! Almost tempted to wear them everywhere. Just getting my time in to break them in at the box

Opening up the box and feeling this shoe in my hand was like holding my first iPhone. The comfort level is off the hook!
