vibrams arent available for sale anywhere until the next month... but the wrestling shoe is very close. both barely have a sole and wrap around the foot very well. Ive actually been using chucks and they rock!!! squatting in them is great, I can really sit back on the heels without compressing into the bottom (sneakers). chucks high tops also have great ankle support and are very light. the bottom is rubberized so there is no chance of slipping. From what everyone said and my personal experience, its better to have very little heel for deadlifts..you wanna be closer to the ground. For everything else I think chucks do a damn good job. maybe once vibrams are in stock again ill give it a shot

I bought my 5 finger vibrams from Mountain Equipment Co-op last year.
They appear to be in stock there right now.
I've only used them for sailing and limited wall climbing. I should try them out at the gym.

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

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.
