The Men's 2015 Pendlay Weightlifting Shoes feature synthetic leather uppers with heavy duty black nylon mesh throughout. The most significant change to the shoe is the newsingle sole design for more strength and flexibility.
The look ofPendlay Weightlifting Shoes changed dramatically in 2013but the new 2015 version of the shoe still has that wider Do-win fit that people have come to depend on.The heel height is 3-4 of an inchthe preferred height for Olympic Lifting.
We are finding that the Men's shoes fit 1-2 size down from your running - training shoe size.
Pendlay Weightlifting shoes are warrantied for 90 days. Although the sole is greatly improved we still recommend only using these shoes for Olympic Weightlifting.

The 2013 Pendlays are definitely a wide person's shoe, although a person with 'regular' width feet would work well too. I would not recommend these shoes for a high arch or narrow footed person.
As a comparison to my Reebok's, these provide a higher heel feeling and feel extremely stable. Pendlay seems to have fixed their shoe lace design so that when all of the holes are laced up, I'm left with about 6" of "tying' shoelace. Perfectly fine once tucked under the top strap. As far as straps, they are also not super long, as older reviews suggest. My only gripe is one of the shoe lace plastic ends was frayed. No big deal, really.
I received the black/blue colorway and am very impressed with the stitching etc. The build is similar to any lifter shoe I've seen/used and are comparable to my Reebok's and the AdiPowers I tried.
Lifting wise - I just came back from a PowerLift session and my squats are nice and stable. I wouldn't report a HUGE difference in feel from my 2.0's, but I do like them better. If you're going from a standard running shoe to these, they will be a humongous difference.
Performance: Similar to AdiPowers, a step above Reebok's. Light years ahead of a regular shoe. 4.25/5
Fit: If you're expecting wide, 5/5. You MUST order a half size down. I am a tried and true size 10, but the size 9.5 are perfect. I ordered the 10s just to see how they fit and they are way too big.
Toe box: definitely wider than most lifters
Heel: not as snug as adipowers, but firm and settled in
Straps: I wish the top strap Sat a little higher up. Cinching down doesn't create a solid lock like the AdiPowers or reeboks, but manageable.
Durability: TBD, very confident will be a 5/5 (I will update at a later date, these will be used 3x a week powerlifting)
Aesthetics: Good looking shoe. Old school feel with new school construction. Adipower/Romaleos still edge out . 4/5
I lifted barefoot for years and got these after starting Mark Rippetoe's "Starting Strength" Program. I won't go back to barefoot, unless I break another toe and can't get in my shoes for a few days.
I normally where a 9 1/2 shoe and I ordered the size 9 after reading the other reviews and the 9 fits great. So go a 1/2 size down from your normal shoe.
My feet are slightly wider than normal and I heard the Adidas adiPower (especially) and Nike Romaleos were on the narrower side. Many reviews indicated the Pendlay shoe to be slightly wider.
I do find these shoes to be just a bit tight in the toebox for my feet but they are certainly not uncomfortable for me to wear 1 - 2 hours while training. I have dedicated flat deadlift shoes and only wear these on leg/squat days. After a few weeks of use these have broken in nicely and they have made a difference in form and comfort when squatting and doing leg presses and hack squats. While long term durability remains to be seen, they seem well constructed without any noticeable flaws or shortcomings so far.
I did follow other's advice and ordered a size down ( 9 1/2) compared to my usual size (10) athletic shoe.
The shoes definitely effect form and feel more than I had expected. They do feel extremely secure/fixed in place due to the stiff sole, and the raised heel allows for greater depth. I've had to reassess my form when using them. Overall, a worthwhile purchase.
