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.

    *ALL P3 Mars purchases include FREE shipping

  • 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.

Mixed Feelings

Hi, It's been a month now that I'm working out in my P3+. These are your finest shoes as presented on your website, but they need to be improved and fast. Really fast. I mean after paying close to if not a little bit more than CAD $300 I expected more. The label sewn on the tongue is coming off already, the sole is peeling off from under the wood heel, and after doing a few warm-ups on assault bikes a piece of wood has broke off the heel...! They have to be more durable for the price you are asking. On a better note, they are comfortable. They look really nice; a few people came by asking what brand they are, and I feel very stable and strong on the platform. Sad to say but unless you make important changes and fast, and the customer's reviews are more positive in the future I will not buy Position shoes again nor recommend anyone to buy them. I now wish I would have bought Asics. Regards

First lifting shoes

These are the first lifting-shoes, I ever bought, but they seem to be great so far!

Great shoe

Awesome shoe, ordered a 12 and it was a tad big on the heel so went with an 11.5. Shipping / customer service / exchange all was very smooth. Shoes are beautifully made and practically useful under the bar. Great for squats.
