There are technical high performance shoes on the market for serious athletes. The new fitness movement of intense dynamic training has spurred a collection of lightweight workout shoes, such as the Inov-8 F-Lites, Vibram Five Fingers, Saucony Hattori, and New Balance Minimus, which all have a 0 to 3mm heel differential. These shoes are great for the work out of the day, with high rep weight circuit training, speed running, skipping, box jumping and etc. When your workouts start to approach low reps at your maximum when doing lifting, however, a different shoe is required.
ASICS has designed a weightlifting shoe, inspired by the professionals. ASICS
Lift Trainer was made for those looking for a shoe that provides structure and support while lifting, something your regular training shoes can not provide. The heel of the shoe has been raised while the forefoot height is decreased, putting the body into correct lifting motion and providing the best opportunity for explosiveness and power throughout the entire lift. Medial and lateral support is achieved through midsole outriggers and a mid-foot strap to provide exceptional stability. The shoe weighs 13.8 ounces which is about 2 ounces lighter than a standard weight lifting shoe. Watch this video from ASICS, featuring the Lift Trainer, as well as their training shoes and field spikes, which Foot Tools also carries:
At $139.99, this shoe will be easy on the bank account and easy on your body. Foot Tools will be bringing in this unique shoe in late February of 2012. Stop by and check it out!
