Sumo Sole Gen 1: Blackout


The Sumo Sole Gen 1 (SSG1) was created in response to our community's demands for a deadlift slipper with even greater traction and grip compared to our original slipper, the Notorious Lifters.

SSG1 features our aggressive #noslipgrip traction pattern and a high side lateral wall to prevent spillage in sumo deadlifts. These two features combine with our dual straps to provide a locked in, ultra grippy slipper unlike any other product on the market.

Fit Recommendation:
Rating of 1 means Runs Small.

The rating of this product for "" is 2.


* Our slippers fit true to US shoe size. Please reference the sizing guide above.

* For those who prefer a tighter, more locked in feeling slipper, size down. If between sizes, size down.

* However, please size up if you have wider than normal feet.

* Our slippers are also designed to be worn with or without the insole. Removing it will give you extra room, bring you closer to the floor, and enhance sensory feedback.

* For optimal performance, velcro should sit flush with opposing side.


Hand Wash: Soak in a mixture of cold water and liquid laundry detergent. Use a soft bristle toothbrush to scrub the upper, then the sole. Once clean, rinse and air dry.

Do not tumble dry.

The shipping was a little stressful

Sumo Sole Gen 1

I’ve been searching for something to squat in because lately I’ve been doing it barefoot. Absolutely love these, they fit perfect. I feel stable from top to bottom and I’m glad I decided to go with these. I’ll be purchasing a black pair in the near future.

Great for lifting helped me be more stable on all lifts.



best powerlifting shoe

Sumo Sole Gen1 is to me the best powerlifting shoe, they help me to improve my ankle mobility and develop great strength in my ankles too, I would like NL bring back colors like green, grey, cause this colors were launched before I could meet about the brand
