  3. I'm going to cast my vote again for high top chucks. Wrestling shoes are flat, but don't have much of a 'platform' to stand on. Chucks have a nice wide flat sole which makes it easy to push out on without rolling your heel.

    Now go buy some, stop obsessing and close this thread.

    i was going to say sambas, then again what do i know..i wear whatever shoes and i'm not really into the whole different shoe thing, if u need elevation in the heal, put ur heal on a dime plate and your good to go

    hell yea brother. I think you can use money better on food, training tools such as bands chains boards etc, a belt and chalk...

  13. Bare feet for meh.

  14. Chucks do me just fine.

  15. I use otomix lifting shoes, they look sick and are comfortable as hell and give you a really good stable platform to do the lift.

  16. Try Chuck SLIMS, it is a newer model. I think the sole is about half that of a normal chuck. A perfect all around gym shoe.

  17. I use chucks, I like them. $20-30 at Target I think they are
