A question we are often asked | How does the SABO Slay compare to the SABO Deadlift? Which one should I choose?
The key similarity between the SABO Slay and the SABO Deadlift is the sole. Both share an ultra-thin (2-5mm) minimal sole that is flat. This makes both shoes ideal for deadlifting. Many other lifters also use them for squats, bench and other lifts. The sole on the SABO Slay is softer and a touch grippier than the SABO Deadlift. If you are considering the SABO Deadlift then rest assured, the sole is still very grippy! The sole on the SABO Slay is also stitched.
The SABO Deadlift features metal reinforced eyelets for the top section. It also features metatarsal and ankle straps which provide superior support. The metatarsal strap in particular helps lock your foot into position.
In summary, the difference in performance is marginal. If you are a powerlifter then we recommend choosing whichever shoe you prefer. For those looking for a good all-round shoe for lifting then opt for the SABO Slay.

Bought for my daughter in size 37. She is a size 4 and they fit perfectly. She is very happy with them. As always great service and delivery.
By far the best all round lifting shoes I have ever used. They have a great grip and I have never had any risk of slipping when lifting. The thin sole makes them great for deadlifts, and I have squatted 200kg using them with no issues. Very comfortable shoes and I wish they would keep making them.
I deadlift conventional and I immediately noticed a lot more comfort and especially and importantly stability in the heel for good drive compared to my lousy old deadlift shoes which I now know were all over the place! I did originally order Russian size 37 because I have Sabo Powerlifts and they are perfect with nice room in the toe-box which I like. When I tried the Slays on my toes were right to the end so they had to go back and be exchanged for 38 which are perfect. Thanks for the speedy turnaround service Darren and Emma and always the lovely personalised note and Haribo! You Rock!
Amazing shoes just round up if you’re between sizes. I’m usually a 10/10.5 but got the Russian 45 and they’re a tight (but comfortable fit) probably spot on
Wysylka sprawnie, buty sztos, jestem bardzo zadowolony.
Just switched from Adidas powerlift shoes to these, being able to feel the floor more helps a lot. Amazing for bench and deadlifts, so glad I bought these!
Amazing shoe for all lifts, especially for deadlifting in. Needed to order next size up on the shoe guide
Very nice shoe. Use for all three lifts, minimal sole so can feel everything through the floor. I needed to go up a size for mine
As someone who has always had problems with flat feet and an unstable tripod foot, I wanted to test these for about a month before submitting a full review. They feel incredibly planted and close to the floor, extremely grippy even when pulling sumo. The sole resists shear force even on relatively slippery surfaces. Easily a 5-star shoe for Bench and Deadlifts, perhaps a 4 star shoe for Squats given how light they are. They weigh so little that if your foot spreads the shoe may not be sturdy/heavy enough to support the ankle on the heaviest squats. Although I suffer from this issue, I have found the benefits (grip and the ability to plant the foot) outweigh the negatives. A bit more mass/stiffness in the ankle and inside of the foot area would make this a 6 star shoe.
Today I used them for the first time and the experiencie is amazing. The control of my deadlift is much better and the position of my back too. Excellent product!
