I wear work shoes to squat and deadlift. They're stable and have a good arch. I've never worn any other kind of shoe to lift in, so I can't compare. The only disadvantage I can think of is when deadlifting, you're starting close to an inch higher; making you reach an inch lower to grip the bar. Work shoes aren't cute like in the USAPL but they do the job. As for myself, I'm not there to look good, only to lift my best. It's not a fashion show but is a power meet. Right !!! |
