      • 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.

Excellent craftsmanship and performance.

I purchased these shoes to replace an old pair of reebok u-form lifters. The stability of these shoes is amazing. I figured a lifting shoe is a lifting shoe. I was wrong. I have some ankle mobility issues doe to some surgical hardware. The height of the heel is allows me to squat to depth with no issues. The final plus to these shoes is they are very well constructed and look fantastic. My primary use of these shoes is powerlifting.

Great show but....

I ordered this shoe because it was recommended at a Lifting workshop. However the new R1, even though it said it had a wider toe bed, it was too narrow and hurt my feet so I had to return the shoes. Also I had to pay for that return even though it was not my fault for the return. Very disappointing.

Greatest shoes I’ve ever used

Now I understand correlation doesn’t equal causation, however every session I’ve lifted in these shoes I’ve hit 3, 5, and 8 rep PRs in my low bar and safety squat bar squat for 3 weeks in a row. They feel incredibly stable and will not slide at all. 10/10

Game Changer

Competing in the USPA Masters 40+ HW 125kg class, this is the small boost I needed to get better depth in my squat. I have no cartilage in my right knee which makes mobility an issue. The stability is a stark contrast from when I did all this in Chucks. With the aid of my Greyskulls, I have the power!

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.
