Re: Deadlifting and shoes

I deadlift in oly shoes, I like them because they don't compress. I haven't thought about it much though. Might be good to try chuck taylors.

Barefoot is still my preference for DLs though.
+1 for the Sambas.

I do pretty much everything in either VFF's or Sambas. Sambas are great POSE running shoes. This is coming from Brian himself when I e-mailed him asking if he would recomend Sambas. Flat and solid enough for Oly's too.

As soon as I can afford some Do-Wins I will buy those, but for now these two shoes are all I need.
