Sabo Deadlift Shoes (Pre-Order Only)
Specialized shoes for deadlifting, and a great all-around lifting shoe for your strength workouts. They're great for low bar squats as well, and they are pretty damn sexy!
- New anatomical fit created especially for deadlifting.
- New non-marking outsole is made of high density material with a special design for MAXIMAL TRACTION. Perfect for sumo deadlifting.
- Soles are ultra thin at 2mm-5mm.
- Two lateral straps allowing for an individual fit and precise tuning of tightness for the foot, ankle and heel, ensuring maximal support under intense pressure.
- High cut upper and materials optimal for training.
- Side support on the outsole allows you to spread the floor without your feet rolling over, unlike slippers.
- The soles are thin and flat to decrease pulling distance. A thin sole means the barbell is higher up from the floor relative to the athlete. This allows for more weight to be lifted since the pulling distance becomes shorter.
- Specialized footwear protects the feet from injuries related to heavy lifting. The footwear protects athletes’ feet from platypodia (flattening of the arches).
- This shoe provides maximum stability for the ankle to ensure maximum stability.
- The soles are made from materials that do not have any give which results in a good surface to push against. The pattern and side support on the outsole minimizes slipping.
If it works for the Russians, it'll work for you!
SABO weightlifting shoes are built on European whole sizes (size 37 - 47). To determine the correct size to choose, you need to measure the length of your feet. We recommend doing this at the end of the day when the feet are at their largest due to swelling. It is also best to wear the socks you plan to wear with the shoes.
The length of the shoe is measured from the heel to the end toe tip on the inside of the shoe (excluding lining and inner sole). More accurate measurements are taken while standing.
- You need a piece of paper, a pencil and a ruler.
- Draw a straight line on the paper. The line should be longer than your foot.
- Place the paper on a flat surface.
- Place your foot on the paper - with your heel and longest toe centered on the line. We recommend standing as this will spread your foot out for a more accurate measurement.
- Draw a mark at the tip of your toe and the back of your heel.
- Measure both feet and use the length of the largest foot.
- Take a ruler and measure the distance between the marks.
- Add 5 milimetres to measurement.
- Find your corresponding size in the table (located among the pictures) next to your total measurement in millimetres.
- If between sizes, we recommend that you round up to the larger size.
