P3 Mars

  • The P3 is 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 black. 4) Effective heel-height is 1" (2.54 centimeters). 

    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.

      • Is a 1" effective heel height right for me? This seems higher than some other mass-produced brands?
      • Answer: Having a slightly higher effective heel height the average (appx. .75"), lifters could see the benefits of a more comfortable lift, better positioning and proper alignment. If you have mobility issues in your ankles, hips or shoulders, a higher 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.

Phenomenal Shoe!

These shoes fit like a glove from the time I put them on. Sizing for me was a full size up from my Romaleos 2’s but they’re plenty wide enough for my fairly wide foot. There’s just enough security and plenty of flexibility. They’re very light, stable and well made. I initially questioned how different it would be but I’m a believer now, the wooden heel is awesome. As a bonus, you can’t beat the sound it makes when it hits the platform.

Oly Lifting

The show design and feel are great and really helped me. My lack of dorsiflexion has been compensated because of the 1 inch heel. Look forward to more colorways and whatever is there next release.

Very Stylish & Clacky Shoes

Really make a bold statement with these 100% stylish shoes. The wooden heels on a wooden platform grab attention with the sheer noise they create. This auditory feedback helps with lifting, I feel.

Nice quality but....

Really wanted to love this shoe but it was way too narrow for my foot. Quality looked good but can’t really comment on longevity. I was offered to switch to the r1 which is wider in the toe box but only a 1/2” heel which doesn’t work for me since I mainly do Olympic lifting. Why not make the best of both world’s and produce a shoe with a wider toe box and a 1” heel?

Awesome Shoe with a Snug Fit

The shoe is great to squat in. I was using very crummy flats previously, and these shoes are significantly better. I am very pleased with them. They are custom/hand made so the fit will not be exact and you can see really small differences in the pair. The one problem that I have with this shoe is that my right shoe is just barely tighter than my left and it can be slightly uncomfortable for the first few minutes of wearing them. Full disclosure, my feet are also very wide.
