Our Raskol Shoe Is It's Own Beast
While inspired by these classic shoes, we've added our own twists. For starters, the sole of our shoe is SLIGHTLY thinner, meaning that your foot will be lower to the ground when doing deadlifts (lifters prefer this). The insole (inside of the shoe) is still super comfortable, but we know for lifters being low to the ground matters.
Secondly, we've made our shoe with an extra sturdy canvas for the top of the shoe. This functions in two ways. One, the top of the shoe that hugs around your foot will feel more secure, a nice feeling when you are loading up 500lb to squat. Secondly, an additional benefit of this reinforced canvas is that there is no “break in” period with the shoe (unlike with Chucks), they're good to go. You can hit a PR on day 1.
