Very good product. Light and mobile which makes everything from box jumps to dead lifts perfect for this shoe.

Awesome olympic lifting and crossfit shoes that will not disappoint
Rated 5 out of 5Â by NickE Skeptical at first, now never leave home without!!
If you lift a bar these are a must have!!! Great for wall balls or any movement you are trying to improve. Such great stability on your heels adds to performance. These are definitely an accessory to CrossFitting. I would recommend also getting a zero drop heel shoe to use for WODs and use these for bar work WODs that don't involve running, maybe even box jumps since the leather in the toe is unprotected. LOVE THEM!!!!

I have wanted a pair of Oly lifting shoes since we used them in college and I've finally decided to get a pair and choose the Oly Lifter. The shoe is stable when you get into a deep squat. I only use them with my Olympic lifts and Double Unders. I guess I don't want to tear them up too much on the box jumps but they feel light enough to use in no running WODs. I wear a size 11 sneaker and ordered a size 10.5 (half size smaller) as suggested. Obviously it makes for a tight fit but the shoe fits and it makes it feel more sturdy. I recommend these shoes for anyone who is serious about their training, anyone else should look for a cheaper alternative.

This is my second pair of oly shoes, but my first pair of Reebok Oly shoes. My other pair are strict weightlifting shoes and make wod's with gymnastic movements feel heavy. Muscle ups, pull ups, HSPU, are easy in the reebok Oly's. Double unders are a breeze in them too.10.5 fit perfectly as my 10.5 innovates. Awesome shoe!! i'll definitely buy another pair when needed
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Josue Give and take. Up and downs
I haven't had the shoe for a long while so I don't know about durability. What I know is, they run a bit small. Bit narrow. What I didn't like about the shoe was that the tip was SO soft. I'm afraid that it's only going to get softer and wear and tear faster. I would have liked a firmer toe support. But I think it's a great overall Crossfit shoe but if you guys are going to put OLY in the title, it should be more OLY worthy. This is more along the lines of "overall solid Crossfit shoe". Where U can go from an Oly lift to a box jump or double under and perform well with the show. The weight of the shoe is what makes it perfect from going from, let's say, Heavy POwercleans to box jumps to jump lunges. The weight and flexibility is great for that. If all I'm doing is OLY lifts, I would not choice this shoe. I would revert to my other Oly shoes (pendlay) because of their slightly thicker soles and wider base.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Dave Very light and extremely comfortable
I got them because they're the lightest on the market. Perfect for combining oly lifting with box jumps and DUs. I'd get them a half size smaller than you're used to though. You want oly shoes tight and these run a bit large, especially once you break them in.

Great shoe a little to big I will recommend to get
Half size smaller and to the rebook guys the colors
Are boring if you can make them look better
Will be awesome .
Rated 4 out of 5Â by jb546 great except on issue
I have done 5 or 6 wods so far and the shoes feel good except i am noticing some of the materials are fraying already, and the logo on the back has a ring around it that is starting to tear off.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by WhipArtist Great purchase!
The quality of the shoe was very apparent when I first removed it from the box. The instructions are easy to follow. They make a big difference in the workout and I won't do heavy lifts without them! I have a feeling that they will last quite a few years of heavy use at the "box."
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jeff Awesome OLY!!!
Awesome Crossfit lifting shoe. Let's you box jump, double under, or even run with ease while having lifts in the WOD. Have added 10 pounds to my squat total. Highly recommend. Fit to size. Great Olympic shoe.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by John Great lifting shoe for strength days!
I have been very pleased with this shoe. Excellent stability, comfort and you get a customized fit. Great shoe for heavy WODs that include bar work like deadlift or overhead lifts. You will need a pair of Nanos for running and jumping. Remember, these are lifting shoes. Recommend going down a half size for snug fit to maximize benefits the shoe offers.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Nicholas Nice shoe for varied WODs
Very light compared to most Oly shoes, very flexible fore foot. Great for lunges, double unders, and box jumps. THE u-form works great! Only complaint would be that the rubber on the soles isn't very durable, i tore mine appart after only 1 WOD with prowler pushes outside.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by andrew Good OLY shoe
I pretty much only use these for olympic lifting, or if there's a heavy lift in a WOD. Very comfortable and the front sole is quite flexible. I hope these last a long time.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Christopher Solid CrossFit Lifting Shoe
Reebok has hit the nail on the head with these shoes. The fitting process is much the same as with hockey skates, very quick and easy. Having that tailored fit is very nice and greatly adds to an already comfortable shoe.
The heel is solid and provides good stability while under heavy load. As far as lifting shoes are concerned these are light, enough so that body weight movements shouldn't be an issue during WODs. I haven't worn the shoes enough to accurately speak about durability, but if the quality so far is any indication I suspect they will hold up just fine.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Young Great Investment.
Great shoes and light. I use these for heavy lifting days and heavy met con days. They have not given me any problems at all. Fits great and very light, toe box has ample room for comfort. I highly recommend to those looking for oly/ met con shoes that'll give you a solid platform, yet give you the versatility to perform box jumps, double unders and row. I highly recommend to those who are looking for solid lifting shoes with versatility, but don't want to go invest in an exclusive oly lifting shoe.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Ed Very happy with my purchase.
This is my first pair of oly shoes so can't compare it to anything else. Here are some of my thoughts on it:
- I wear a men US 9.5. This runs about a half size long.
- I usually prefer shoes with a wide toe box. These shoes were tight out of the box but got comfortable after I performed the u-form fitting.
- REALLY improved my lifting especially anything squat-related (back squat, OHS, squat cleans, etc.). I feel like my heels are twice as wide and really stable.
- While you can technically do box jumps, double-unders, etc. in these shoes, I personally will not do box jumps with them again if I can help it. It was a shock to my feet and body every time I landed past the flexible section of the shoes.
Overall, fantastic piece of equipment. Can't imaging doing any OLY lifts (hence the name) without it.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Scott Totally worth getting
The stability these shoes provide for heavy Oly lifts can't be talked about enough. Once you get used to letting the shoes do some of your work things start to improve dramatically. If you have poor hip mobility like me, the shoes also help with being able to sit at the bottom of a squat (front, back , OH) and keeping your weight back on DL and C&J.
The sizing is pretty spot on, they are a little snug but since I wont be doing any running in these shoes I don't mind it.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Tyler Top functionality for CrossFit
Excellent lifting shoes with built in notches for climbing rope, can perform box jumps, double unders, etc.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by StickyLegs Looking forward to punishing these shoes
After a few WODs in the gym I can say that these shoes are as advertised. Box jumps to burpees from dead lifts to cleans, the transition is smooth and the shoes feel great. I plan to punish these shoes to see how well they are actually built, but for now I am a happy camper.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by graeme Great lifting shoe
Great shoe for Olympic lifts and power lifts. Back of the heal wedge doesn't have any grip on hard surfaces such as the Oly deck. Really notice when doing reverse chest to barbell pulls. Stil a great shoe for all things Oly.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by null Great Product
These shoes have helped me immensely with cleans and snatches. If you have trouble with either of these movements or just lack the mobility to get into any type of deep squat I would highly recommend these shoes. They feel incredibly stable and take the pain away that accompanies performing oly lifts with sub-par mobility. I haven't tried other Olympic lifting shoes so I don't have a point of reference to compare these to other options, but everyone I have talk to that owns a pair loves them (about 7 other ppl).
Note: The description does say these are well rounded shoes for crossfiting, which I do agree with. From what I have seen most other oly shoes are not fun to do anything else but lifting in. This being said... These are built FOR lifting, don't expect a pair of shoes you can wear around or run in. But hey, if your short like me, it feels good to stand a little taller!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Saul Great Oly Shoe
I have been doing CrossFit for about 18 months, and I have only had the OLY Lifter for about 6 weeks. They have made a world of difference for my snatch, clean & jerk, back squat and front squat. My feet feel firmly planted on the ground and extremely stable when lifting. Yet the shoe also feels nimble and light enough to do box jumps and double unders. They are fantastic!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by angel What a difference!
I just started "Crossfitting" about 45 days ago, however, I've been doing some Olympic lifting for the past 3 years...what a HUGE difference these make! My squats, clean and jerks, overhead squats and even deadlifts feel way more controlled. It's like I have a new core. The flexible toe has been awesome for box jumps and double unders in WOD's. Plus....they look sweet.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by null Best cf oly shoe
After using other brand oly shoes and switching to these I have noticed a huge difference. My old shoes I was not able to run or do any type of cardio work but with these it's like wearing a regular sneaker. The toe box gives pleanty of room as well. With these I am able to wear them through a whole workout and not dread doing certain movements because of my shoes.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Carl Best Oly shoes I have owned!
The title says it all. These shoes are THE most comfortable Oly shoes I have ever used! The U-Form technology makes the fit even better. Super light and comfortable.
The toe leather seems a little on the soft side when using these shoes in combination with burpees and push ups. I added KG's boot guard to the toe and these things are now indestructible. Sick shoes!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jacob Well worth the $$
I have been very pleased with these shoes. I have had them for about a month and they feel great and have produced results in my lifts. They are also great when crossfitting. I've used them with box jumps, double unders, and rowing and have had no problems with them. They do run a little big, so if you want a tighter fit drop down half a size.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Robert More CrossFit versatility than I expected
This is my first pair of lifting shoes. OLY Lifters have been very helpful for the heavier lifts which is why I purchased them. Surprisingly,I am quite comfortable wearing the OLY Lifters for WODs that involve double-unders and box jumps.
Normally wear size 12 running shoe but wear 11.5 for both OLY Lifter and CrossFit Flex Nano.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Joe Must Have
These shoes are great for Olympic Lifting. The sole is rock solid and when moving laterally it almost feels like your heel is magnetized to the ground. I just did a WOD with box jumps and squat cleans today and they performed well. Strongly recommend for any CrossFitter looking to put in some extra time strengthening their Olympic lifts.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jeremy Great shoe to lift in, creates an extremely stable platform while still giving you the ability to perform other tasks other than just olympic lifts (ie. double unders, box jumps, short runs). These shoes are everything Reebok promised they would be and then some! These were well worth the money and the wait, no regrets whatsoever.
