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&colorId=
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.

Nike's FREE model, closest thing to barefoot you will get.

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.

I don't have to worry about what shoes I wear in the gym, so I just wear these every day, heh.
