i power lifted for four years and always wore adidas weightlifting shoes, dynamic-eleiko.com
I have Five Fingers that I sometimes wear but if it's not too cold I lift barefoot.
I had vibrams and am extremely flat footed. They were a b!tch. Returned them. I stick to my wrestling shoes.

my feet have no arch whatsoever. I also have never considered shoe choice as something that would hamper my strength or my form. I guess I'll try lifting in some chucks.
I love training in my Vibram 5 Fingers. Especially deads
yu dont need scientific evidence to understand that if you have good feet you can train barefoot and have comfort+preformance.. its merely common sense positive comfort > science
for the flat feet you can reshape by orthestotics (typo) or things such as golf ball rolling or yoga.. the body will right itself given time and consistency
surprised noone mentioned Do-wins here
well thats a good opinion, but i dont see scientific evidence for why once you hit 40 your arches are doomed
people under age of 25 suffer from plantar fasciitis but there are stretches and therapy to redevelop the arch and reduce heel pain
Plantar fasciitis is a condition that is not well understood. Usually, it is caused by improper support and/or excessive weight, but there are a myriad of factors that play into this.
chuck taylors or socks for me
I clearly don't understand how this works. The Master's degree and CSCS clearly indicate that I lack knowledge in the field...
[QUOTE=Rodja;2676632]Thank you for enlightening me about Wolff's and Davis' Law. I'm already well aware about the bodies ability to adapt in both bone and connective tissue.QUOTE]
problem is i didnt even study those two, i just use my common sense and experience
Rodja, did you take a look at the Diesel shoes in my thread below? Maybe you haven't seen them in person, but maybe you can tell by the shape if they'd be a good shoe to at least try? I've just been using a Puma with a fairly flat sole. I'm wanting to get a little ankle support as I near the 400 lb DL mark with my chicken legs though.
