See sizing directions below.
Try just one set in these and you won't be able to lift without them. Improvements for 2019 include improved eyelet construction, more durable metatarsal strap, an overall lighter and more breathable design, and a more flexible forefoot.   


  • The upper is made with a high quality durable synthetic leather and breathable mesh.
  • A new ultra-modern non-marking outsole based on the Sabo Power Platform (SPP).  The SSP system brings some flexibility to the forefoot, while being rock solid in the heel.  
  • Two multi-directional straps lock your foot and ankle firmly into the shoe.  Sleeves on the strap loops ensure a tight lock.
  • An effective heel height of 0.77 inches, the diagram below shows heel dimensions for each size.   (Effective heel height is calculated as H2 - H5).  The broken H2/H5 line is where the foot sits in the shoe.  

  • Heel made of plastic polymers, making the heel light weight, but super strong and non-compressible.
  • Light weight - size 42 RUS comes in at 17 ounces.
  • High wings of the outsole add extra support.
  • Heel loop for ease when putting on.
  • Designed to be used for Weightlifting, Powerlifting, Bodybuilding, Crossfit and Girevoy Sport.

Size Guide

    SABO lifting shoes are built on Russian whole sizes (size 34 - 47). The table below shows the conversion of Russian to US men's and women's sizes. Since every foot is three-dimensional and varies across many different areas (such as width, instep etc), conversion tables can only approximate your true shoe size.

Awesome squat shoes!!


Excellent shoe

Best of the Best

These shoes don’t get the exposure they deserve. By far (IMO) they offer the best overall support and stability I could possibly ask for. I ordered and returned Adipower’s and Do-Wins prior to finding Sabo.
The Sabo shoes are simply superior in every aspect. The fit is perfect for my slightly wider foot. Plenty of room for my toes either doing squats, leg press or hack squats. The eyelets are sturdy with laces that genuinely bite and hold. The power straps lock you in with unsurpassed stability which translates into confidence as you’re driving the weight. The sole is comfortable with incredible grip. All in all these shoes exceeded my expectations. I will certainly be ordering another pair for my son, who loves to train just as much as his old man.

Glad you like the Powerlifts. Thank so much for the review!

Max Barbells delivers!

I love these shoes but there was a minor flaw I notified Max Barbell about. Response time and customer service was beyond my expectations. I’m confident ordering here because I know I will be taken care of. Highly recommend ordering anything from Max Barbell 👍🏻👍🏻

Amazing weightlifting shoes

My SABO shoes arrived a couple of days ago and here are some observations:
- they are true to size: you can order them without fear of getting tight or loose shoes
- they accommodate wide feet with spread-out toes (like mine) without being loose. The shoe wraps the feet safely and comfortably
- heels just the right height for Olympic Weightlifting. For those that will use it for squatting in powerlifting training and competition, they are the best alternative I've tested (way better than the traditional powerlifting boots = I tested several)
- sturdy
This is the second time I buy shoes from MAXBarbell and the order is delivered faster than most training equipment stores. My previous purchase was a pair of Wei-Rui, also excellent shoes.
Highly recommended.
