In order to meet these conditions, the weightlifting shoes developed by Anta adopt many advanced technologies: the TALOON clinging system is used in the forefoot to provide stable support for the foot in all directions, and the original A-FORM cushioning technology is used in the heel and arch to absorb The heel impact reduces the chance of foot injury; the overall sole is made of super wear-resistant fiber, which is 2.5 times that of ordinary materials, bringing strong stability and grip; the upper is made of multi-layer fabrics for high-strength bonding, Even the shoe eyelets have a tension value exceeding the national standard by 40%.
