In need of some new gym shoes, I have narrow, high arched feet. These seem like a good fit but a little pricey. Anyone here own a pair? Or recommend a shoe

I have the powerlift.  They were all on huge sale during new years and on top of the 15% discount code you can get with the email sign up it was a fucking steal. Powerlift for something like $60 and adipower for around 100? I forget but it was crazy cheap.

 

I have the powerlift and they are are great! However, don't expect to be able to run on them at all.  Not meant for the treadmill or running in general.

 

It's fine if you have narrow feet, actually works out with these shoes as do I.  They run small from what people are saying.  But with these kinds of shoes you want them a bit snug anyways.

 

Been rocking powerlifts since 2012.  Can't beat them for lifting.  The flat footing makes lifts stable and really help you get grounded in squats, deadlifts..etc

 

You can obviously still use them for the bicycle machines and what not....just remember they can't be used as a cross training shoe.

Cool thanks man, I would love to try some on instead of guessing online. Going to hit up a few stores tomorrow and hope I can find a pair. Where did you see the adipowers for 100? Lowest price I can find is like 170 for the color I want

What's wrong with converse? Can't think there's a show that will really be much better for lifting unless you're looking at Olympic shoes, and how many of us can actually justify their use?

Like I said it was on sale during new years I think or during black Friday...It was a while back.  The sale plus the 15% discount you can get signing up for their emails made those prices. You can't get those prices anymore, but you can still get the 15% discount.

I've got the Nike Romeleos. I got mine as a Christmas gift. They are nice for oly lifts for sure but they are very stiff. As long as you aren't doing much moving around you'll be fine.

Converse would destroy my feet, arch would tear apart

Thought about trying out some lifting shoes but $170 is too much for my stingy wallet.

I like chuck's and other super flat shoes, but am re-evaluating my shoe collection along with all other lifting related aspects. I thought I felt a rip in my arch/plantar fascia when doing deads a month ago.

$60 is kinda the max I would pay for a pair of shoes if I saw those for that price I would consider them.

Yeah, not going to be able to make it out to any sporting shops today to try some on but will go tomorrow. Have shit to take care of, hoping to find a pair I like and find it for cheap online.

I have Adipowers. I only use them to squat and clean with. (I don't do other oly lifts)

This is all I'd use them for.
