    I would answer that with "it depends".

    I run barefoot or with Vibrams, so my calfs and feet are really really stong.

    I too deadlift and squat barefoot and have had great success doing so.

    My sets of deads are 345x8, 345x7, 345x6 (or failure) with 2 warm up sets.

    I say **** the shoes, but that's just me. I know in running your stride is longer, but my form is better and my lower body is much more powerful. Shoes are for those that need the extra support (and aren't willing to go through the 60 days of torture getting used to running barefoot or barefoot style (Vibrams...again) ).

    Just my opinion. If you dead with shoes, more power to you and you prob lift more that me. Not knocking the shoes movement.....ok maybe a little.

    Good luck bro!

    Chuck Taylor's. Ask any PL'er worth his salt and they'll say that flat-soled shoes are a must.

    Agreed. I use old flat soled jordans and I love them. Only because I had them already and am dealing with paying back student loans so new liftin shoes have to wait. I will get chucks when I can. I only use those for squats/ deads (jordans)

    However, this applies to few people as most do not have the proper arch to support running without adequate protection. I, for example, am flat-footed and have to be very meticulous when it comes to buying athletic shoes.

    I was under the impression that your arch will actually increase as your feet get stronger. Furthermore, a very small/low arch is the sign of very weak feet.

    An arch cannot be changed after a certain point in your life. When you're lighter and there is much less stress on the foot, the amount of support is not as critical. While I was in HS, I ran XC and did not have any foot issues, but I was also about 145 lbs and ran primarily on grass as opposed to concrete/pavement. It has much more to do with bone structure than strength of the foot. The actual bones of my foot, ankle, and tibia are very strong and thick from years of Thai boxing, but they've had little impact on the overpronation I experience without proper shoes.

    Agreed, there is some great info in this article. I like Mark's website, it has all sorts of info on here, but it sounds like you might not be able to change the arch, but you can help it become irrelavant (or less important bc your surrounding muscles and ligaments are strong.

    In the end, Hoffman concluded that of the “one hundred and eighty-six pairs of primitive feet examined, [he] did not find a single foot associated with the symptoms of weakness so common in adult shoe-wearing feet, which are weakened by the restraint the shoe exerts over function.” He also noticed that foot development was remarkably similar, in all populations, up until the introduction of foot wear. Shoes, it seems, have an undeniable ability to alter one’s natural foot structure.
    OP, before you get married into shoes, check this read out.

    The first, perhaps most important step is to stay away from orthotics and shoes with “plenty of arch support.” Rather than help you solve your problem, shoes with arch supports prop you up and lead to weak, atrophied foot musculature. Your feet aren’t grasping, pulling, pushing, and flexing inside a pair of athletic trainers; they’re growing soft and growing weak. Fixing, or at least mitigating, your flat feet is going to require some serious foot strength.

    Next, spend as much time as humanly possible with your bare feet. If you’re at home, remove your shoes as soon as you enter. If you’re heading out to take the dog on a walk, try circling the block in your bare feet. Mail’s come? Shoeless. Early morning paper? Barefoot. Living room workout? Do it without shoes on. You’ve got to learn to use your feet again, and the best way to do so is to simply live, eat, breath, and sleep barefoot.
