    Otomix Shoes for weightlifting


    Has anyone used these for weight lifting. They look ideal for deads and squats bc there flat, you can feel the floor and provide ankle support.

    Spend 20 on some chucks, and with the extra 50 buy some protein or something.

    I love my chucks.

    adidas wrestling shoes rock out. tie them up tight and you can feel the floor and really push through the floor on your pulls and press through your heels on ur squats. I love mine. I mean I walked 600lbs out and did two quarter squats just didn't have the right spotters to go and try it deep. but I could really feel the floor.

    i think u made a good choice those five fingers are pretty cool. i use nike frees or just go bare foot and both work for me but my brother picked up some of those five fingers and i tried them on and they are surprisingly comfortable.

    I think they are ok for deads. I prefer chuck taylors for squatting or old school high top vans they are canvas strong and provide a solid surface to squat on. Plus chucks are about half the price of otomix.
