Reebok continues its domination of the CrossFit game with a new iteration of its Olympic lifting shoe, the CrossFit Lifter Plus. This shoe is not as versatile as the CrossFit Nano or the CrossFit Lifter, but for good reason—it's only meant for your heavy lifting days.
The CrossFit Lifter Plus provides an additional strap for support and eliminates the midsole for a grounded feel. The shoe also features Reebok's U-Form technology, which you activate by warming the shoes in the oven and then wearing them for a few minutes. This provides a custom fit for your heel—plus, it feels pretty good on your feet while it's still hot.
The shoe also has a very grippy bottom sole, so you won't slip during your lifts.
I wouldn't wear the Lifter Plus for anything other than lifting. It is too rigid, and you could hurt yourself if you attempt any sudden lateral moves. But wearing them made me feel solidly grounded. Within the first week, I posted a new PR in both my Clean and Overhead Squat. Coincidence? I think not. Check them out at shop.reebok.com/
