Description

The Tom Platz Squat Boot is ideal for bodybuilding, powerlifting as well as Olympic Weightlifting. The design is based on the Soviet boots which Soviet Cosmonauts tested in space to reduce muscle atrophy. Similar designs have been used for some of the heaviest lifts in history. It features a solid wood heel that maximizes the transfer of force from the lifter’s legs to the floor, leading to bigger squats and deadlifts. The solid wood heel actually work hardens the more you lift in it- that simply means the heel gets more efficient and molds to your foot over its usable life. The shoe has an all leather high top upper, providing superior ankle support. The dorsal straps offers additional stability and a secure foot hold. In total, the shoe’s stability features will reduce the likelihood of ankle, back, and knee injuries because it reduces unwanted lateral motion while lifting such as: rolling of the foot and wobbling at the knees. The shoes are hand made in The Americas (not Asia) of the highest quality materials on the market. They are made with leather from Argentina and wood heels from the Amazon basin. We use Italian molds and old traditional Italian shoe making technology, in fair trade working conditions. Locally sourced leather and local, renewable wood are used to reduce the carbon footprint. Additionally, natural leather dyes are used to improve environmental impact. The head artisan in charge of this model had worked for several years in Europe making shoes for big names like Louis Vuitton (in fact we use a similar system while treating the leather). This hand shoe is made to order and the lead time is 8-10 weeks.
