  3. Well the trainer at my gym has some addias and said its awesome. He squats like 300lbs + lbs and helps him a lot with balance etc .

  4. Might be the adidas shoe I had mentioned. I think it's one of the biggest selling powerlifting shoes out there.

    If you're using running shoes or "cross trainers", I'd tell ya to stop. Especially for exercises like squats. These kinds of shoes, by design, force you to put too much weight on the balls of your feet. When you're squatting, you want your weight more evenly distributed.

  5. adidas adistar Weightlifting is what I will get. Now to find it for a good price. I see 200 bucks. Can someone help me find it for about 100. The trainer at my gym got his for 150, several years ago.

  6. I personally just use socks. Easier to feel the floor under me heels so I can drive them deep, and have my bodies natural balance for squats, and deads.

    But thats just me.

  7. I would say out of all the meets I have been to the Converse All Star is by far the most popular shoe. In the IPF, olympic shoes are very popular for the squat, allows to hit legal depth easier, having a heel.

  8. I can't find a price for the adistar shoes. If someone can find me a link that would be great.

  9. Personally I wear a pair of old Converse All Star's.

  10. My gym won't let me do that on there olympic box they have. Its a no no there lol.

  11. yea whats everyones take on Otomix? i was thinking of buying a pair

  12. The best. Well that is really an opinion, they'll help to a certain degree but one pair being better than another. If you squat close stance, or olympic style I would say the Adidas weight lifting shoes. If you squat med-wide stance I would say Safe Squat shoes.

    I have them and I like them, but they're the only pair of weightlifting shoes that I own so I can't compare them to anything else (like Adidas). However, after wearing them for an hour or so, putting on any other shoe feels like you're walking on air.

  15. Boxmeman, which shoes are you getting? I forgot to mention the Metal Squat shoes are said to be very good, and their made for the med-wide stance squatters. But most of the guys from Westside wear chucks, so I think its safe to say, they must be good for the med-wide stance squatters. So the most popular for the wide stance squatters would be chucks, safe squat shoes, and then Metal squat shoes. So the choice is up to you. Hope this helps.

  16. I forgot to mention that the VSathletics shoes have a pretty high heel, which is great for squatting and oly lifts, but some people might not like that for deadlifts.

  17. use wrestling shoes

    Watch out for these "Adistars" by Addidas. A buddy on my powerlifting team bought a pair and paid $200 for them.

    The only negative for these is that the soles have very little traction. He would clean and jerk with them and slip alot. We wound up putting almost a sticky substance on the bottom to keep them tacky. -tyler

    I agree!

  23. I've always heard that a pair of Chuck Taylors are dandy to squat in. My feeling is that $40 buys a lot of protein so I just squat in socks. Amazingly enough my squat jumped after I stopped lifting in running shoes!

  24. black on black converse allstars.

    one of the best purchases i have ever made.

    they are cheap, easily attainable and make you look like a BAMF.

    good luck

  25. Lately I have been using Asics throwing shoes. These are made for field events such as shot-put and discus. The are wide, flat soled and inexpensive. I really like them for squats and deads. Check out the link.

    Profile: A basic throwing shoe that provides optimal features necessary for most weight events. The flat, solid outsole and support strap also makes a suitable weight lifting shoe.

  29. I just bought the adiStar. I had to. They looked way better than the asic. Sorry.

  30. $200... no thanks...

    $30 chucks work well for me

  31. If you are an olympic squatter, get an olympic shoe. If you are a wide stance posterior squatter get a pair of chucks. Wrestling shoes are OK i guess. I usually only people pull in them though. Chucks will activate your posterior more while squatting.

  34. ROGUE weightlifting shoe:


    I just ordered these after hearing great reviews. My chucks are done in after a few years of use so I figure I'd give these a try. I plan on squatting in them, and I am learning how to do some more olympic lifts as well so these are supposed to be a badass all around shoe.

    I'm still getting a new pair of chucks to deadlift in though. :dl:

  35. hightop chuck taylors....... like 40 bucks
