Co-designed with Rogue athlete CJ Cummings these shoes are heavy and will make you stick to the ground. They come with an effective heel height and come in a wide range of sizes and colors.

The extra weight of these shoes is a bonus for everyone who feels to light on their feet when lifting heavy. If you have a tendency to lean over or get on your toes while lifting, these shoes might help to fix these issues.

If you tend to drag your feet, this is not the right shoe for you as they will make you even sower. Also, not all color options are available in all sizes.
Alternatives to the Reebok legacy lifter
Alternatives to the Reebok Legacy lifter are:
The Adidas Leistung 16 shoes are the current high end in price when it comes to weightlifting shoes. This is mainly due to the added extra mechanics of the Boa closing system. The Boa locking system helps you to tighten up the shoe around your midfoot without having to work too hard on the lacing.
The Nike Romaleos have gone in the lightweight direction with their newest models. If you prefer the swoosh on your shoe and want them to be as light as possible, this is the shoe for you to get.
The Adidas Adipower shoes are the old school version of the weightlifting world. They have been around for a long time and their classic design still holds strong. This was the first weightlifting shoe I ever owned and I loved them.
