Pro: Reinforced side material feels strong when "Spreading the floor"
Ultra flat and hard sole
Good overall construction
Shipping was fast (2days)
Cons: Velcro straps feel cheap and provide minimal retention
Shoe is uncomfortable outside of the gym (to be expected)
Conclusion: The SABO Deadlift shoe really inspires confidence when attempting heavy sumo deadlifts because of the extra side material and the Hard, flat sole. I believe the SABO's can preform squats just fine, but there are better dedicated options such as the Adidas Adipower or the Nike Romaleo. I hope this helps!
After the first day with my sabo shoes I immediately hit a p.r. on conventional after being at a plateau for a while. Additionally, I think they are really cute.
Pros: Excellent grip.
Fits exactly as expected. I am a girl so I got one size smaller than my normal women's shoe size.
I feel when I laced my shoes the way I do for running, my weak ankles had a lot of support. If you feel the shoe isnt supportive enough around the ankle, try changing the way you lace them. The additional straps are snug and tight.
Cons: The laces are definitely short. I have narrow feet and was able to tie a small bow. Someone with wide feet or thick ankles should purchase some laces to swap out.
They're not perfect though. When I'm doing something like double unders the velcro tends to come undone and these are definitely not to be used with something like rope climbs or sled pushes. The soles do not grip well so when I did sled pushes, my feet were sliding and the soles ripped up a bit. They weren't designed for that so I can't dock these since I was not using them as intended and I have since stopped using these for sled pushes. I would assume that ropes would rip them up too when coming down (I haven't tried it myself).
However, I would still expect the stitches to hold up when doing something like double unders, burpees, front squats.... I found that on one of the shoes the stitches for the velcro have broken and is unravelling so now I need to go get them repaired.
Other than that these shoes are good. I just wish they would withstand a bit more since I don't like having to stop and change shoes in the middle of class (like when switching from part A to part B, where I might be doing deadlifts or squat cleans then burpees then pull ups).
A side note: I have used these shoes with success for KB swings and squats. My feet do slip when I bench, so I went back to my Vans for this lift.
I followed the sizing guide and consulted reviews from others. The shoe still ran a bit small. It might be because my feet is a little wide. I still prefer Mark Bell's power shoe. That's just me though, I have seen plenty of others who like to use these shoes and I would agree with them if the toe box was a little bigger on these.
This is a lot of fine craftsmanship for only 90 bucks. It is lightly constructed but I only put them on for deadlifts and then immediately remove them afterwards. The lacing must have been Russian style so I had to remove the laces and put them back on in the normal way, otherwise I couldn't tighten the laces.
I had some reservations about buying shoes just for the deadlift, but then I measured the sole height and compared them to my Nike Romaleo IIIs and my Skechers and these shoes take 3/4" off the deadlift. If you don't think a free 3/4" off the start of you deadlift is a big deal you need to try a set barefoot. It is a big deal and these shoes are better than barefoot with a sole height of just under 1/4".
