Now a part of Position USA history, the P2.1 was 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.
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 brown. 4) Effective heel-height is 1" (2.54 centimeters). 5) Vibram rubber soles enhance your grip on the platform.
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.
Having this size heel helps you maintain control like never before. You know ourregular 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 helpprovide a better bar path and catch position.
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.
