To get the most out of your weightlifting, preparation starts from the bottom - success comes from the sole. Provide yourself the support and balance that only weightlifting shoes can, and find the perfect product for you. Ryderwear shoes offer some of the greatest support and offer a bountiful range of motion that few other brands can offer. Find the best lifter shoes at Ryderwear.
What Are Weightlifting Shoes?
Each sport seems to have its own set of shoes - running, climbing, soccer, football, basketball, etc. - so why should weightlifting be any different? These aren't just another shoe designed solely to sell and make money, they're specifically fitted to create the optimal transfer of energy throughout your foot. When lifting, the stance and squat you find yourself in make a world of difference. If you don't have a solid structure to support the weights, you're destined for failure before you even start the press.
Weightlifting shoes offer the structure and balance that athletes need. The flat sole makes use of the entire foot rather than just the toes or the heel as with other sports shoes. You'll often find weightlifting shoes being used in many different CrossFit activities as the balance and structure offered by these weightlifting shoes is necessary throughout.
The Best Brand For You
Search for the lifting shoes that fit your needs, not the ones that are pushed to you on the first website you encounter. Top stores might show up on the top page of results, but that doesn't mean they'll be the right products. An example of a top name to follow in 2021 that can offer a fantastic product that is sure to help in your next session is Ryderwear.

If you're skeptical about buying new shoes for weightlifting, or think that going barefoot can replace a quality pair of squat shoes or those designed primarily for weightlifting, then make sure to read on as we outline how quality workout shoes can help you bust through plateaus and crush heavy lifts.
If you have experience with weightlifting, then you will appreciate that to get results you need to maintain proper form, recover well and prevent any kind of injury or setback keeps you out of the gym. Going barefoot puts unnecessary stress on your joints and decreases ankle stability (you read more in depth on the biomechanics of this in our blog post), which can lead you to spending time out of the squat rack and your weightlifting routing.
Bring the Shoes, Weightlifting Follows
The importance of your weightlifting footwear cannot be overstated. Once you let your feet stabilize and your lower body support strengthen, you'll be lifting like never before. The upper body may be responsible for lifting high, but without a solid, planted foot, you may not be able to lift at all.
Lifting shoes, and any quality weightlifting shoes, will help you improve your lifts by offering a superior transfer of power. Weightlifting shoes with a flat , firm sole are going to offer a superior transfer of force through your legs than ordinary training shoes or barefoot training, as their surface offers less resistance. Think about it this way, you won't be breaking any records doing a heavy back squat on a mattress; so much of the force will be absorbed rather than transferred in the motion of pushing that weight back up.
