What kind of flat soled shoes do you guys wear? I wear my jordans for everything because they are sooo comfortable, but for deadlifts and leg exercises ive found the thick sole makes it tough to push through my heels. Im planning on getting something just for deads and legs but im not to fond of the paying 100 bucks for official lifting sneaks.

Good alternatives you guys have found?

nike shox: legs day
puma cat low: deadlift (they are awsome)
I can barely walk in shox much less train in them.

I would suggest anything with a flat stable sole. The pumas are a good suggestion. I hear alot of guys like the old school chuck taylors.

I use these and I love them...well mine aren't exactly this style bc mine are discontinued but you get the idea. It GREATLY helped my squat form as I was no longer being pushed forward by having a taller heel. This really allows you to sit back and drive through your hams, glutes, and hips.

I was used to wearing shox when i squatted and began to have a lot of knee pain...i got a free pair of otomix shoes to try out and the flat sole definitely helped my knee pain...but basically, chuck taylors/pumas/wrestling shoes do the same thing

I'm not trying to hijack your thread, but what do you guys think of Otomix lifting shoes? I've considered buying a pair for a while but I haven't really heard much feedback on them.

I have a pair of these and they have made my squatting form much better and stronger. Its just like squatting with no shoes on. They look stupid but who the hell cares! I highly recommend.
I want them both for the lifting improvements but also for cardio to help with posture and proper walking form etc. Thanks for the review! They are on my "to-buy-next" list :)

I wear otomix stingrays and vibram fivefinger KSO. Usually wear the KSOs on leg day and back day. They are extremely comfortable once you get used to them.

Ive been looking online and at 4 stores today. It seems like wrestling shoes are the way to go as far as price/efficiency. Thanks for all the suggestions. The chuck taylors are surprisingly hard to find at stores to try on :confused:

Those toed shoes look like they would help alot....but im too much of a pussy to wear them to the gym i think. They mike clash with my Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles tshirts :cool:

weird....i literally just left the store that sells these. ive been wanting a pair for a while and was hesitant to order without trying them on...im glad i waited. the salesman, who seemed knowledgeable in fitting these gave me three different sizes to choose from that he said "fit", so i ended up not getting any. apparently the fit is very important bc too tight will obviously be uncomfortable and too loose will cause blisters. add to that the shoe will stretch and it makes it a bit confusing because to really get the purported benefits the fit should be "glove like"... so if you could try them on b4 purchasing, i would suggest doing so.
