We live in a time where our planet suffers from two epidemics simultaneously - starvation and obesity.
Look at all these little kids taking care of the music biz, don't their business take good care of me.

Vans Slip-ons! I lift heavy and want a firm foot plant when I'm lifting. Basketball and running shoes are not ideal for doing heavy squats or deads.

Rogue Fitness Do-Wins... Mark Rippetoe advocates the weight lifting shoe, and I thought I'd give it a shot after reading through one of his books. One of the best training equipment purchases I've ever made.

bare feet for squats occasionally...if i do, i'll throw some weights under my heel for a little bit of lift under there.

Ah, the Five Fingers. Although I have yet to try them for myself, they get phenominal reviews. Most say it's as close to getting barefoot as possible while retaining adequate protection. Olympic weight lifting, to rock climbing, to trail running... lots of people speak very highly of them. Good post, I almost forgot about them. Definitly an interesting shoe.

I wanted to get a pair of the new NIKE romaleos, but they are all sold out of most sizes on their site..
I need a new pair of shoes to lift in.

i wish i could do deadlifts and squats naked. I'll have to invest in a gym in my shed. I'd imagine it would be quite cold though
