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 4.0 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, sturdy Picked these up maybe 2, 2.5 months ago. Good fit (pretty much true to size, I wear 9-10 tennis shoes and the 9’s fit well), and they’re holding up quite well so far. Solid shoe, no complaints.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from True to size The page recommends ordering a 1/2 size down. I would only do that if you want your feet to go numb. The 2 straps do a great job securing your feet. You don't need to order them smaller than your size or you won't want to wear them for more than a couple sets. Build quality seems great and the sole is nice and sturdy. Excellent grip. I'll revise this when I get a pair in the right size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lifting shoes These shoes are solid, well built and a great value for the money. I use them for squats and oly lifts and the grip/stability is rock solid. The two straps give you flexibility in how tight you want to the upper and lower part of the shoe. I ordered my normal shoe size and the fit was perfect. Shipping was fast from Rogue. All in all, a solid lifting shoe for short money...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for a first I’ve had these shoes for a little under two months and have used them for about 20 lifting sessions. When I first got them, I wore them around the house just to break them in. I can say there’s a huge difference in before and after break-in period as the shoe loosens up a bit. After a few heavy squat sessions I can feel my arches collapsing inward. I replaced the original insole with an icebug fat-medium insoles, and that helped greatly. The biggest issue I have is the stitch work inside the shoe. There’s quite a substantial amount of material that folds over by the toe box when I place my foot inside the shoe. I can only wear the shoes for a short time before that fold puts too much pressure on the top of my foot. I’ll have to take them off in between sets. Other than those two complaints, it offers a great foundation for heavy lifts. I can get into the squat pocket much more smoothly with these shoes and not struggle with back pain. For a first time lifting shoe, this is a good bang for the buck. *or maybe I just got an unlucky pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid lifting shoe! This is a solid lifting shoe and I use it every time I squat and deadlift. The wide build of this shoe makes you feel stable throughout the lift.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Squat Shoes for lifters with low ankle mobility I've had the Do-Win Classics a couple of months now and they've been a great addition to changing up my squat routine. I have mediocre ankle mobility, and am not able to squat to below parallel (where the crease at the hip drops below the top of the knee) with the bar positioned along the trapezius or directly on top of the trap (high-bar). The 21-mm elevation adds just enough height for me squat to powerlifting-standard depth. The only issues are the resultant knee pain, since the load moves from the posterior chain to more quad/knee-dominance. At that point, I switch back to flatter shoes (New Balance Minimus Cross Fit) to move the load back toward the posterior chain--just to give my knees a break. I've also worn SBD knee sleeves to help mitigate the knee stress that comes from quad-dominant (high-bar) squats. The shoes themselves are high-quality. I have wide feet (EE, EEE), so I upsized to account for the medium-width Do-Wins, and that seemed to work. Be forewarned that the toe box in this shoe is shallow, so your toes might feel squished until the shoe breaks in (which takes a few weeks due to the all-leather construction). The stacked-leather sole construction gives excellent stability and makes a good connection with the floor (very little to no give), so your force transmission from the floor-to-the-bar-on-your-back is nearly immediate. I recommend this shoe for lifters who have mediocre to low ankle mobility. If you have good ankle dorsiflexion--you won't need these shoes to squat to powerlifting standard depth--so stick with flat or nearly zero-drop cross-fit training shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Had these shoes for about eleven years so far and the first real signs of wear are starting to show up. Still work out in them 5x/week doing oly lifts. Never had a reason to use another shoe. Never been this satisfied with any shoe. Or arguably anything at all. When these bad boys finally give out I’ll probably just die a few hours later like one of those super old couples who love each other so much that they don’t know how to live without each other. Good shoes.
