Nike Romaleos 4 – Here’s the newest colorway of what is probably the best Oly lifter for the year 2021.

Rogue has a great selection of weightlifting shoes – including the Romaleos 4.

Nike came up with another groundbreaking sports innovation with the Romaleos 4, a training shoe created for strength and stability. It features a supportive midsole and a wide, flat outsole, and adjustable straps at the midfoot. The Nike Romaleos are the most outstanding squat shoe in the world of powerlifting.

Here’s some of the styles that are available now:

Nike Romaleos 4 (Deep Ocean/Pure Platinum/Ozone Blue/Metallic Copper) Here's the newest colorway of the Nike Romaleos 4 - and it looks great. This shoe has all the same performance features of the other versions too.
Nike Romaleos 4 AMP With extra-bold styling the Nike Romaleos 4 AMP is a good looking shoe. It packs all the same performance features as the regular edition Romaleos 4 - and that's a good thing..
Nike Romaleos 4 (White/Black) The Romaleos 4 has a very firm sole and very little cushion - which is exactly what you want for heavy barbell weightlifting. Shown here in Black/White, this is one of the colorways in many of the photos.
Nike Romaleos 4 (Black) Also available in black, you can see the tall heel raise (or drop) that these shoes provide - making getting low in the squat easier.
Nike Romaleos 4 (Red) With a big swoosh and bold colors, the Romaleos 4 makes a bold statement on the lifting platform.
Nike Romaleos 4 (SE) The SE (or Special Edition) is likely going to sell out - they usually don't make many of these.

Nike Romaleos 4 – Overview

Look forward to pain-free training as Romaleos 4 brings better overall comfort with this pair of bad boys. It is a little heavier on the feet than the previous version, which boosts more power in your lifting and squatting. It has a modern and stylish design with different colors of deep ocean/pure, platinum/ozone blue, and metallic copper compared to earlier versions.

A wide heel creates a stable base for heavy lifts, while its rubber tread provides durable traction to meet the demands of your sport. It has a raised heel, which makes lifting and squatting effortless.

Its adjustable straps at the midfoot protect your foot during your most extreme workouts. The expanded straps over the laces are adjustable to bring guaranteed support, and its grip makes it feel as if your feet are cemented to the ground.

Nike Romaleos 4 Review – Other Editions

Not digging that color? Here are some more styles.

Nike Romaleos 4 - Swoosh
Some people don’t like the ostentatious swoosh logo on these shoes, but there’s no escaping it – it’s on every edition of the shoe.

Black/White is a nice neutral looking color combo. But, that Swoosh stands out quite a bit.

Nike Romaleos 4 - Black/White
Want something more subtle? Check out the Black/White colorway shown here – my personal favorite.

Black/Orange is more subtle and still has all the great performance features you need for Oly lifting.

Here’s another colorway that we tested. Sharp!

Nike Romaleos 4 Review – In Summary

That’s our review of the Nike Romaleos 4 from Nike.

Romaleos 4 has an upgraded platform, better balance, and traction, the same heel slip, while its fit and looks still boils down to personal preference. With its additional strap, you’ll enjoy a drastically improved level of support. Romaleos 4 is your perfect buddy if you want exceptional durability, firmer, heavier support, and if you have wide feet.
