Honestly, when I'm walking around the gym, they don't stand out like others I've seen. I was paranoid about that. They just look like a pair of black and white Adidas. The material, stitching, etc look like they will hold up for the long haul. I wouldn't wear them out on the town though. They aren't made for that.
Winner -- Fastlift, at less than a third of the price
Adipower: More rigid
Winner -- Adipower, lifting shoes main function is to be rigid, but this is about a tossup as both shoes have molded plastic cups in the heel. Adipower sole is thicker.
Fastlift: Very comfortable
Winner -- Fastlift, I usually go in to gym and switch from tennis shoes to the Fastlifts and wear them the whole time and have no discomfort. Adipower is comfortable, but more rigid which makes them a less comfortable.
Durability: (I haven't worn either long enough to tell, so this is just a guess)
Fastlift: Seems well made
Winner -- Adipower, seems slightly, very slightly better made. I don't do full olympic lifts, which is what I'd guess abuse any shoe the most (I do mostly compound moves - squats, deadlift, bench, rows) as those movements have more bending of the sole and have more "stomp" than a simple squat.
Heel height, effective:
Winner - Either, as this is a preference. I use both pairs for standard deadlifting (not sumo) without issue. Sumo deadlift causes bad issues when you have a heel cup in my experience.
Fastlift: Tons of options for colors and styles
Adipower: A few options for colors and styles
Winner - Either, as this a preference
Overall, here is the scoop... if you're looking for a good weightlifting shoe and don't want to break the bank the Innov-8 Fastlift is a great pair for half the price of the Adipower. If you're a Crossfitter I think that the Fastlift is a no brainer between the two as it is far more flexible and will let you do more of your workout with them on instead of swapping out (although, if you are doing Crossfit I'd suggest something even more flexible than the 325 such as the Innov-8 F-lite 250, not that I've tried that shoe, I'm just judging on it still having a little of a heel cup, but is more flexible than something like the Fastlift/Adipower/Romelos. The only reason IMHO you should go for the Adipower is if you're hellbent on a certain color/look/brand or maybe you're more serious about Olympic lifts and the durability of the Adidas pair would be better due to more rigidity.
Whenever I get the Adipowers back out of storage I'll have to do a more proper side-by-side comparison.
