Best Weightlifting Shoes for Women

By Perry Hua

There are tons of weightlifting shoes on the market, with most being specialized toward a specific lifter. If you’re someone who lifts everyday from the start of the gym session until you leave, you probably won’t want a pair of entry level shoes. They’ll probably end up falling apart in a couple of months and won’t offer the level of performance you’re looking for. On the other end of the spectrum, if you’re more into casual lifting with other forms of training included for a full body workout, you’ll probably want a pair of more versatile shoes that can do a bit of everything. With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of the best weightlifting shoes for women in different categories, including price and function.
