Perform well, hope they last

So far, the shoes have performed well. I’m coming from a pair of other lifters with a 5/8” heel. The toe box is a bit narrow and I hope it stretches out as I get hot spots where the straps connect to the sole. Also, I’m disappointed that the logo on the tongue of one of the shoes is already coming undone after about a week of use. I hope the shoes last.

Best squat shoe ever

I have worn a lot of shoes for squatting and by far this is the best yet. From its devilish good looks to it’s performance, you cant beat it! Get yourself a pair to experience the difference, you won’t regret it!

Faq
Is a .5" effective heel height right for me? I'm used to a different size.

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.

Why do you use a solid wood heel?

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.

How do Position shoes fit?

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. FOR MORE SIZING INFORMATION - please view our Size Chart.
