confused on shoes?
i dont know what kind of shoes to wear or to buy for the gym. i do normal training squat bench dead aux. also oly lifts alot. but now im starting to train for strongman comp. i usually use nike shox, but for legs and oly i use new balance shoes so would lifting shoes be good for strongman training or should i get some like work boots for that?

I've been lifting for over a year with a pair of KSwiss similar to these: http://www.kswiss.com/item/50.45/021..._Platinum.html
When I squat I notice my knees wabble - not very stable.
I also have a pair of Adidas wrestling shoes similar to these: http://www.shopadidas.com/product/in...12807&color****
Mine don't have the velcro strap. I'm going to give these a try next time I squat and see if I get better results.

Everyone, thanks for the info on shoes!
I took my pair of wrestling shoes to the gym yesterday since it was leg day. The flatter soles made a huge difference, in fact I was able to add an extra 40 lbs to my squat without having my knees wiggle all over the place.
Thank you again.
