reminds me of the dante vs gym thread.. so stupid to ban any type of shoe. If I drop a 45 lb plate on my foot, unless I'm wearing steel toes I'm getting hurt.

Flat soles or bust. Vibram FiveFingers for deadlifts, squats, bent over rows, cleans, ect ect.

My gym (MSU rec center) became less strict on the Five Fingers policy, I occasionally was hassled about them... I asked one of my boys who works there and he told me he spoke to the rec center director.

Apparently the cvnt didn't want to overturn her decision because she didn't like my tone in the e-mail. LOL. Thankfully I just finished my education at MSU, will be graduating this Sunday... needless to say I will not be returning to that gym. Fuuck them.

i dont think i can ever wear something else since i've switched to VFFs about 2 years ago. back then, i was really apprehensive because i'd look stupid and be one of "those guys", but then i realized: i dont care how i look in the gym and i'm definitely not one of "those guys" that loves to tell everyone all about how they wear VFFs. so in the end: who cares?

Is there any stores that actually carry any of these shoes (besides VFF's)? I'd like to try some on before buying online.

My Ride: is totaled
I was wearing my nike lunarglide running shoes for lifting but did not feel stable for squats and deadlifts
So I was doing barefoot
Now I bought a pair of nike free trainer 3.0
Very flat and light weight
Much better than the running shoes
But I think barefoot still feels the best for squats and deadlifts

The Lunar's are definitely too soft in the sole. I'm not a fan of barefoot, but I do love lifting in my Free 3.0's.

That's gotta be it. I have 3 pairs, Adidas adiprene, UA's micro-g, and a pair of Reebok's. The better of the three is the UA, but nowhere near as comfortable as barefoot. Soft sole destabilizes the joints, especially the knees. So I'm seriously thinking about getting some proper ones, but they cost close to $200

I'm considering purchasing Nike free 3.0's, I tried them on tonight and was amazed. Didn't bite the bullet yet, but tomorrow I may end up with a beautiful new pair.
