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 Oooooooooh These shoes are a game changer. I've squatted in chucks, adidas powerlifters but no other shoe can compare to the Romaeleos. The stability this shoes gives you is out of this world. Not to mention the great colors you can choose from. Sure $189 is pricey but keep in mind that if you're a serious athlete you'll get your money's worth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How did I live without them !!!!!! love this shoe hit the squat rack for the first time with the and I have no idea how I lived without them. I ordered true to my size I wear a 11.5 in Nike running shoe and the 11.5 fit perfectly. If feels like someone is holding you heels down while you squat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Tip for choosing right size. I have a Nike Air Max sized 11.5 and it fits perfectly. The Nike Romaleos 2 with size 11 fits perfectly as well(bare feet). Hope can help you with size confusion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A MUST BUY!!! I purchased these shoes a few weeks ago and I must say I am IN LOVE!!! I do crossfit and use these for all my oly lifts and what a difference it has made in my form and power. AS FAR AS SIZE GOES I would stick with your TRUE NIKE SNEAKER SHOE SIZE! I emphasize this because there is a lot of controversy on size. My metcon's, air max, anything nike is a 9 and I got a 9 in the Romaleos 2's. At first they seemed a little snug but just like any other shoe they stretch and now fit even more perfect. Plus you don't want your foot sliding all around so tight is better. Also side note, I got the crimson red one's and they are SICK!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally awesome I have slightly wide, flat feet. The size 13 fit me perfectly. There was no need to go up or down from my normal size. Based on earlier reviews, I was worried about the reported high arch in the shoe. However, mine came with two removable insoles, one with a high arch and one with a low arch. I tried them both, and the high arch was really painful. That wasn't a problem, though, because the low arch insole was perfect for me. I love the stability, and the heel height is just right. Overall, great lifting shoe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I bought these maybe a few months ago and I love them. They fit great and they're super stable. I love to do all the squats in them. I'm really glad I got them.
