Pros & Cons

What we like ...
  • Great shoes at a great price point ($120)
  • Wide toe box adds stability to lifts
  • Good option for casual lifters and beginners
What needs improvement ...
  • Midsole might be too responsive for people who lift super heavy
  • Moderate heel height (about 15.5mm 0.6”) doesn’t provide the best assistance for squatting
  • Limited velcro surface area on straps

Product Summary

Nike Savaleos weightlifting shoes are a great entry-level option for people interested in Olympic weightlifting, as well as people who need extra support for reaching full depth during squats. With a wide toe box, an elevated EVA heel, and a hook-and-loop strap to keep your foot locked down, the Savaleos will make you feel more confident during your lifting sessions.
