    Best Converse Shoes For Lifting


    What do you guys think are the best converse shoes for squating/deadlifting? Do you have a particular Converse style that you think works best? Should I buy the canvas or leather shoes?

    The regular high top Chuck Taylor's are your best bet. The regular canvas works just fine. I've used this style for several years and they work great without being horribly expensive.

    I stick with wrestling shoes myself. Great traction with no interior sliding

    Lol ! Post.

    to the OP, just the standard chucks for me, why waste your hard-earned money on those awesome leather chucks only to get scuffed and knackered?

    The new Product Red ones look swish.
