Here’s a new color option for the Nike Savaleos.
There are different shoes for different workouts. What makes the Savaleos different is they can be used in different workouts as well as weightlifting. This makes this shoe functional and a great option for entry-level weightlifters and athletes that want a weightlifting shoe for more versatile training.
The Savaleos is an Olympic weighlifting shoe. It’s lighter, has less heel raise, and is overall less extreme as compared to the Romaleos 4.
It’s also cheaper by about $80 – check for yourself:

Nike Savaleos – Overview
Compared to the Romaleos, the Savaleos have a reduced heel height, so you won’t feel strange transitioning from the barbell to gymnastic/endurance movements. The lower heel drop increases demand on your mobility which produces more mobility gains during training. The padded mesh inset at the heel absorbs impact while allowing your foot to breathe.
The addition of a handstand push-up clip is one of the most notable features of the Savaleos. The Nike Metcon series also use the same feature, and the additional inch of material is intended to help you up and down the wall without swapping shoes. The hook-and-loop strap locks down your foot to hold you in firmly during your heaviest lifts.
The stiff, wide sole gives an enhanced grip around the exterior edges of the toe box to help you twist and turn in more dynamic and lateral movements. The lightweight and perforated upper highlights the removal of one strap, eliminating any unwanted weight to keep the shoe as light and agile as possible.
Nike Savaleos Review – In Summary
That’s our review of Nike Savaleos.
The Savaleos have a minimal design and are the perfect entry-level option for those new to weightlifting. The shoe straps your foot down to a flat, wide base to keep you firm and protected when you’re up against serious weight. It connects weightlifting and workouts, so you no longer have to change a different shoe after lifting.
