Jiriki is the Japanese Buddhist term for self power, the ability to achieve liberation or enlightenment through one's own efforts.


A closer look at the new Jiriki Powerlifting shoe.

JIRIKI JKP- # 1 color: Red

JIRIKI JKP- # 1 color: White


Mid-top design that firmly holds the ankle.


Heel counter that increases the strength of the heel and holds the foot.



Equipped with Hyper-V sole, which boasts the world's highest grip.



An adjustable strap that is placed in front of the instep. Tightening the strap enhances the hold feeling with the foot.



A "hold counter" integrated with the sole is placed on the outside of the toes. Together with the belt in front of the instep, it prevents the foot from slipping inside the shoe and reduces power loss.



Removable insoles.


JIRIKI JKP- # 1 uses a thin special rubber insole that is completely different from conventional shoes.


The thickness of the sole can be adjusted according to the training menu and competition. The sole thickness when the insole is removed is 7 mm, and the Hyper-V sole directly conveys the power of the wearer.


How to choose your JIRIKI JKP- # 1 shoe size

To determine the correct shoe size, you can also measure the length of your feet. We recommend doing this at the end of the day when the feet are at their largest due to swelling. It is also best to wear the socks you plan to wear with the shoes.

Here is internal length (A) inside the shoe JKP- # 1 (without the insole).

Product size (cm) 24.0 24.5 25.0 25.5 26.0 26.5 27.0 28.0
Length A (cm) 24.1 24.6 25.1 25.6 26.1 26.6 27.1 28.6


Next, measure your foot length using the following method.


  1. Wall you can stand against
  2. A4 or A3 paper
  3. Ruler
  4. Pen or pencil
  5. Socks that are usually used

<Measurement method>

1. Fold the paper in half so that you can see the center line.

2. Place the paper on the wall

3. Determine your longest foot, left or right. 

4. Align the heel of your longest foot with the wall so that the center of the heel is on the center line.

5. Mark the longest part of your toe with a pen

6. Measure the distance in cm's between the center line on the heel side and the mark on the toe side. Select a size that makes the shoe length A in the range of 0.3 to 0.8 cm larger with respect to the length of the foot.

Example of staff:

Staff A:

The length of the foot was 25.0 cm. 25.5cm is the best for JKP- # 1. I usually wear 7.5 US/25.5cm sneakers for running.

Staff B:

The leg length was 25.8. 26.0cm is the best for JKP- # 1. I usually wear 8 US/26.0cm sneakers.


Please use the self measurement method described above as a reference value only.  The Japanese to US conversion (below) should be fairly accurate for most customers:

Jiriki powerlifting shoes do run on the narrow side.  We do not recommend these shoes if you have EE or wider feet.  

Japan (cm) 24.0 24.5 25.0 25.5 26.0 26.5 27.0 28.0
US men's 6 6.5 7 7.5 8 8.5 9 10
US women's 7 7.5 8 8.5 9 9.5 10

If in-between size 9 and 10, please size up.
