    What type of shoes do you all wear?


    I need some new sneaks for the gym (lifting, jogging, mostly), and was curious as to what most of you wear, like running, cross trainers, etc.

    Brand isn't too important, really.

    Thanks!!

    Don't squat in cross trainers and don't run in chuck tailors and you'll be set.

    I use Wally-world brand Chucks on leg day and Asics (real deal,) for cardio.

    For squat and deadlifting I prefer Chuck taylors or Vans, anything with a flat sole will be good. Vans and chucks are good because they wont blow out.
    For everything else a good athletic shoe, like New Balance, Nikes, or UnderArmor.
