Official Shoe Thread

Ok I have become addicted to shoes, I don't have ton of pairs but I want more, anyone have the Reebok Nano 3.0, I really like the look of some of the superhero ones and was thinking of picking up a pair.

Current lifting shoes
NB Minimus (DLs and Back Squats)
Nike Free 3.0 (shoulder press and cleans)
Nike Free 5.0 (front squats)

Various Asic running shoes for rucks and other activities.

NB Minimus and Vibram five fingers. I alternate between the two. Prior to those I was on my 4th pair of Nike frees.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

I almost picked up another pair of Frees tonight after I left the gym, they were very close to a pair I designed and were only $50.

I think I'll just hold off and get these in the near future.

I honestly didn't buy sneakers for certain lifts, I just needed to justify having them after buying them.

But certain shoes for certain lifts do make a difference.

I can see how it does, I've definitely felt unstable wearing the Air Max on certain lifts.

I would try squatting on different shoes, you go pretty heavy and it would make a difference.

I'm still not sold on front squatting in 5.0s because they are pretty squishy, but I need to do something with the shoes I bought.

Only through trial and error. I've always lifted in NB Minimus since their introduction. Once I wore holes in my first pair I tried working out in my Nike Frees. I hated how they felt under a squat bar and during DLs, but liked them for every thing else.

I never even considered shoes when it comes to lifting. I only bought gym shoes for the running part of my workout. I need tons of cushioning or I get horrible shin splints and lower back pain.

They make the biggest difference on squats and DLs, the difference in stability is very noticeable with minimalist shoes on, especially compared to extra cushioned running shoes.

I've heard nothing but good things about Olympic lifting shoes but I just can't justify spending $100-200 on a pair of shoes that can only be used for one thing (lifting) and would most likely only be used 1 maybe 2 days a week.

That's why I wear mine about 4 times a week
Even if I were to only wear the oly lifting shoes once or twice a week, I still think they're worth it
They will last a long long time

For DLs, I find barefoot works best for me.

For front squats, I need to find a good pair so I don't keep using plates under my feet. Cannot justify 200 Oly lifting shoes for the amount of squatting I do. I would rather spend that money on soccer cleats.
