Reebok Legacy Lifter 3


The Reebok Legacy Lifter III is designed for athletes seeking enhanced stability and comfort in their weightlifting footwear, with updates like the improved upper strap and pump system offering a more secure fit. Its construction supports a variety of lifting activities, making it a versatile choice for serious weightlifters. However, those with wide feet or looking for a budget-friendly option might need to consider their needs carefully.

Product Summary and Features

The Reebok Legacy Lifter III is praised for its enhanced stability and traction, making it ideal for squats, Olympic lifting, and general strength work, particularly for those with narrow and neutral-width feet. It maintains core construction elements from its predecessor, offering familiarity with improvements in security and comfort, thanks to the upper strap and pump system.

However, it may not justify the higher price for everyone, especially for those with wide feet or athletes looking for a significant upgrade from the Legacy Lifter II. For more detailed insights, visit my full review on That Fit Friend linked below.

Lifting Tests

    • Max Squat: 420 lbs. The stability is awesome with its TPU midsole and it has good upper security.
    • Max Deadlift: N/A. Don’t deadlift in your weightlifting shoes.
    • Max Lunge: 235 lb walking lunge. Good stability, but the toe box can feel a little snug for dynamic quad-focused work.
