Re: Explain why I need oly shoes again?

You are correct on all of those counts. You don't "need" lifting shoes for anything. They are definitely a luxury item for those that care about and want to maximize their Olympic weightlifting skill. They are pieces of performance equipment, much like a $1200 Eleiko bar is better than a $300 Rogue bar is better than the $50 bolted-end bar from Craigslist.

And you are also correct in that you shouldn't be wearing them for movements where there is going to be excessive flexing of the sole.
