      • 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.

Fabulous!

My first lifting shoe ever. Wanted to support a more sustainable design with the wood heel vs all the other guys with plastic/polymers. Super happy with them!

Fantastic, Five Stars

My 2nd pair of Position USA lifters. These are flat out just a Great Lifting shoe. And they look cool to boot. The 1” heel on my first pair helped with my mobility and squat depth. The 1/2” heel on the Gray Skulls is a great feel and it makes me feel very quick under the bar for cleans, snatches and jerks.

Best Lifting Shoes I’ve Had in Years

These shoes did not disappoint. They’re priced on par with most other popular lifting shoes but the quality is on point, especially coming from a smaller company than Nike, adidas, etc. I replaced my Nike Romaleos with these for the shorter heel. I feel so much better on squats with these. The wooden heel is done very well and I even get compliments from the old classic weightlifters at the gym. 100% recommended.
