I've been lifting quite a lot (a lot of squats) over the last few months and I've completely destroyed my trainers that I wear in the gym. I thought that it's probably a good excuse to get a proper set of weightlifting shoes. There doesn't seem to be a lot around specifically for women though.
Does anyone have any recommendations for good ones?
Funnily, I just bought some a couple weeks ago. I got the Adidas Powerlift 3.0s and the difference compared to my old trainers is night and day. They make squats feel so more natural and make my feet just feel planted to the floor.
You're right that there isn't a lot of information for women. But there is a bit out there like this powerliftingbelts.org/best-womens-weightlifting-shoes/ which I used to choose mine. So if you're into your squats, you will feel a huge difference by getting a pair. Only problem is that they're not great for other sorts of exercise. I wouldn't go for a jog in them
I have had the Adidas Powerlift 3 for a while and they are really good for the price.
You will probably find that you can squat a lot more weight in them, because they give you great stability when you're pushing off the floor.
You definitely shouldn't use them for anything else though, other than maybe bench if they help you get more leg drive (doesn't work for me as my legs are quite long, but some of the ladies who train with me swear by benching in squat shoes)
If you squat often they are definitely worth buying
