It’s only available in Men’s sizes, and the offer expires at midnight (of July 12th). But if you act now, you can get a pair of Adidas’ Leistung weightlifting shoes for 30% off through Amazon as a Prime Day Deal.

The Leistung is Adidas’ top-of-the-line lifting shoe, and while its looks are far from universally loved (though reports suggests it looks much better in person), it’s still a light, innovative, and by most accounts quality weightlifting shoe. Much of that innovation comes in the form of its Boa Closure System, which replaces traditional laces with a tightening dial used to modify tightness and hold.

The Leistung has a heel hight of 37.8mm total and a heel lift of 24.8 mm. That’s a bit more of a heel lift than the Adidas’ Adipower model and Nike Romaleo 2 (both of which come in a little under 20mm of heel lift).

Most sizes of the Leistung are $225 on Amazon (and most other outlets, including Rogue), but today — and only today — Amazon Prime members can get them for $157.50 at checkout (although this can vary a bit by size).

While Adidas doesn’t seem to have the dominance it once did when it comes to weightlifting shoes in international competitoin, Leistungs seem to be the current shoe of choice for top lifters like Mart Seim (seen here doing crazy things in them) and Aleksey Torokhtiy (who, though retired, is still much stronger than pretty much everyone reading this).
