Let’s review the new weightlifting shoe from Nike – the Savaleos.
Nike will launch its new weightlifting shoe on April 1st, but even before its availability, let’s take a preview of the Nike Savaleos. Previous Nike weightlifting shoes were solely used for weightlifting, whereas Savaleos connects cross-training and weightlifting. This means you can use it in doing burpees and then head straight to deadlifts without changing your shoes.
Here are some of the styles we are going to look at:
Let’s take a look at this new shoe.

Nike Savaleos – Overview
In some ways, the Savaleos is comparable to the Nike Romaleos line as they are used for weightlifting. The Savaleos, though, can do more than just taking you to your weightlifting routine. It is the versatile sibling that you can use every day for multiple training purposes.
Its hook-and-loop strap confines your midfoot to firmly hold you during your most difficult lifts while the padded mesh inset at the heel takes in impact and allows your foot to breathe. It has a firm structure that gives exceptional power transfer from the ground to support explosive movements. The upper is almost weightless and perforated, and you can remove one strap so you can go lighter and quicker.
The Saveleos has an elevated heel that gives your foot stability as you lift and versatility when you’re training without weight. It has a flat, wide sole that grants balance while you exercise. Taking a closer look at the Savaleos, you will notice that this shoe combined the strength and stability of the Romaleos and the durability and functionality of the Metcon.
