Nike has made slight cosmetic updates for the 2014 model. Click here to see the new Nike Romaleos 2 Varsity Red.


Nike improved this high end weightlifting shoe by shaving 50 grams off the weight and increasing the forefoot flex.

Exclusive Nike contoured TPU heel wedge cups heel and supports foot to provide unmatched lifting stability

Integrated lacing and double power straps lock foot firmly in place

Supportive, durable upper materials and construction

Outsole designed to minimize wear in the heel

One of the most challenging shoes to build for Beijing, the Nike Romaleos is a lightweight, flexible workhorse that can withstand the unique punishment that weightlifters put on their footwear. In a world championship event where a 300-pound man might lift 700 pounds, shoes play a critical role in an athlete’s performance and safety. The most revolutionary innovation in the Nike Romaleos weightlifting shoe is Nike’s exclusive “Power Bridge,” a contoured TPU heel wedge designed to support the foot and bear as much weight as a man can lift, without any compression or give. This technology provides a lightweight alternative to the wooden heel wedge that competitors have been using since the 1960s. The Power Bridge is also a technical advancement because, unlike a flat wood shim, it is contoured to cup the heel, providing stability and comfort under stress. The honeycomb-like system of trusses and bridges in the midsole has been engineered for ultimate strength, helping to ensure that an athlete’s weight stays forward during the intense jerking and lifting motion of competition. A first in Nike footwear design, heel heights have been graded to different elevations for the varying sizes and weight classes of Olympic athletes. This unique system is well-protected by a flat rubber outsole specially designed to minimize wear in the heel.

The upper is constructed from durable synthetic materials that are ultra-supportive with integrated lacing and two large hook and loop fasteners that keep the foot locked in place. Inside, elastic has been added to the top of the shoe to flex with the tendons of the foot during the snapping “triple extension” movement of clean and jerk lifting. The Nike Romaleos comes with two different sockliners: a softer insert for training and a harder version for competition, when athletes benefit most from zero deflection as power is transferred through the foot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb product Got these shoes yesterday, as birthday gift. Lifted today in these, and i must say these shoes are superb. Yes they are expensive, but when you take out of the box you will realize what you paid for. No give, no wiggle, NO COMPRESSION. Still no the most comfortable shoes, and especially competition insoles are really stiff. Since these are weightlifting shoes and aren't house slippers, it goes without saying. Worth the price, if you are serious about WEIGHTLIFTING, these are worth the money. Much appreciation goes to Rouge Fitness for one of the very few place to carry these shoes, I've been dying for these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest OLY Shoes These things are amazing looking right out of the box! But when you put them on, you no long care about the look, its the stability that's amazing. I've been using them for OLY lifts only as you can imagine and they are the best in my opinion. Unmatched in stability and comfort. Take them off and you feel like the floor is made out of rubber compared to when you had them on. Size 12 was a close one. I would say be careful about the sizing if you have a big foot. I'm normally a size 12 in Nike shoes but these definitely cut it close.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sizing wise I went 1/2 size down (same as I were buying NIke cleats) from my normal Nike shoe and they are a perfect fit! The dual straps lock 'em down even tighter. Plus, they look AWESOME in all black!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Just got mine today and tried them out. Absolutely awesome. It feels like you are cemented in to the ground. Also makes it super easy to get super deep. Fantastic shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Shoes! First time I have ever bought a dedicated weightlifting shoe, decided to go with one of the best right out the gate, and I couldn't be happier! Outstanding quality, comfortable, OLY lifts felt solid as a rock, and the Nike styling is SWEET! I normally wear an 8 in all my Nike running shoes, but I picked up a 7.5 to make sure they were snug and they fit me absolutely perfect! I would highly recommend these shoes to anyone serious about lifting, they are worth the investment.
