After long months of designing and testing it has been launched - 

Lab of Champions ROTOR specialized shoes model for Kettlebell sport and all other athletic and fitness activities.


The huge positive distinction of these shoes is that I have been inside the construction process from the first moment and up to the last. I have been really in every element and on every stage. I have put into construction of ROTOR1 all my 20+ years experience in Kettlebell sport and my loreexperience from other fields: technical and others and my soul of course.


Initially the idea was to copy legendary Soviet weightlifting shoes which drive their history from 1930th but I made a decision to make step much further and to fill my model with such qualities no any other model have it in the summary and to create ideal shoes for KB sport and other athletic sports and gym activities. 


Of course it is impossible to reach an ideal but I am very proud of the result I have reached in this ROTOR1 model for Kettlebell sport and all weightlifting disciplines.


Luckily Saint-Petersburg is the origin city of Kettlebell sport and still the main Kettlebell center worldwide and also big sport science and industry place.


The best lifters took part in testing of these shoes discussing different elements of construction to make it better and better. No any other model before could be disposed to such attention and care then ROTOR1.
