Do-Win Classic Lifter

The original Rogue weightlifting shoe, the Do-Win, is back in a re-launched “Classic” edition, available here in three colorway choices: Black & White, Red & White, and Blue & White.

As longtime Rogue athletes will know, the Do-Win Lifter was the very first lifting shoe ever sold through Rogue Fitness, starting back in 2007. This simple, precision design—with its 0.75” heel-to-toe drop, ample ventilation, and lock-down stability—earned a devoted following from the amateur ranks to the highest levels of competition. And while plenty has changed in the worlds of CrossFit and weightlifting over the past decade, a classic never goes out of style.

Do-Win Classic Lifter is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from True to size (don't go down!), sole ripped quickly Overall I really like the shoe and it's a good price but the advice to go down half a size was unnecessary. I was able to stretch them enough to keep them but they are VERY snug and I wish I would've stuck with my normal size. My big complaint is that within a week of wearing them, the rubber part of the sole on the front peeled back so it caught on the ground on my split jerk. After 2 applications of shoe goo, it seems to be fixed but not sure how long that will hold up. If they were the right size and the bottom hadn't come apart so quickly, I would've given them 5 stars because I do like lifting in them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs SMALL Love the overall look of the shoe, also love that its not a plastic heel. I normally wear a size 7 in men's shoes. Played soccer for 17 years and used to a snug fit. The toe box on these are tiny. Having to return and size up. Currently wear men's size 7 in Metcons and they have room to spare. My suggestion would be to size up.+

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old school is best! I have the 2008(?) version of this shoe. It is still better than the latest version and it fits better than the Romaleos. As a 50+ yr old lifter, I can attest to the maxim of “if it ain’t broke, it don’t need fixin’”.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the weight, heel height and the wide toe box I normally would get a size 6.5 in men’s, but had to go up a full size. Disappointing when you have to pay shipping to exchange and return but over all love these shoes!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit Best squat shoes I have owned. Very solid and my feet have zero wobble or flex with a big load. I love them and definitely recommend. I am thinking about buying a second pair out of fear of them being discontinued.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit excellent heel height Originally sized up. Didn't have to sent the original pair back for my regular street shoe size worked out great. I have another brand that has a higher heel that I didn't like, these shoes are not too high not too low. Just right. Like that they are leather and have leather mid soles with rubber bottoms. Really feel anchored to the floor when I squat. They seem like they will last a long time. Glad Rogue makes these. My true size worked great for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I've been looking for Had a pair of the old Pendlay Do-Wins that I picked up around 08. Unfortunately those feel apart after years of use and I moved on to the Nike Romaleos. Used the Nikes for about a year but they just never felt right, so I figured I'd see if I could find another pair of the Do-Wins. So happy Rogue brought these shoes back! I love the wooden heel and the overall feel and build of these shoes. I may have to stock up in case they get discontinued again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from don't run large Overall the shoe is good. But it does not run as large as they say. They said buy a half size larger than your regular tennis shoe. I did and it was tight. So I have been stretching them out with rubbing alcohol. Still not real comfortable. None the less it is still a good solid shoe made with real leather mid-soles
