Two months ago, 2010 CrossFit Games Champion (and longtime Reebok athlete) Graham Holmberg gave us a look at Reebok’s new weightlifting shoe in a YouTube video. And at the IWF Junior Worlds earlier this summer, weightlifting phenom CJ Cummings wore a black-and-gold version of the shoe on his way to winning a World Championship and setting a new World Record in the clean & jerk.
It’s Reebok’s new entry into the market with a dedicated weightlifting shoe, and they seem to be locking up top talent in order to increase their presence in the sport.
Now, we have our closest look yet at the Reebok Legacy Lifter, a dedicated weightlifting shoe that looks entirely different from their existing line of lifters and functional fitness shoes. This look comes courtesy of the MIA Classic, an annual weightlifting meet held in Miami, Florida. Reebok is a sponsor of the event, and fans/athletes were given their first hands-on look at the shoe.
Check it out below. The Reebok Legacy Lifter is scheduled for public release December 1st.
Another look at the shoe, along with more description on the construction and release date from the MIA Classic Instagram account.
Natural fit for comfort and to help maintain power. Full foot wrap, overlapping straps and laces to lock you down. Stay tuned for the @reebok Legacy Lifter coming out December 1st!
We want to know: What do you think of Reebok’s upcoming weightlifting shoe? How does it stack up to others on the market, and do you like the appearance? Let us know in the comments below!
