Best Shoes for Crossfit...

Hey guys...I was wondering what you guys thought was the best shoes for Crossfit? Coming from a powerlifting background I typically wore my converse allstar hightops! Yes, I know they aren't typically a lifting shoe, but they are low to the ground and perfect for deads and squats. But with all of the stuff listed in these workouts I almost think that my Asics Murano's might be better suited? What do you guys lift in?

Re: Best Shoes for Crossfit...

Plenty of people I know do CF in Chuck's. As long as you're not doing a lot of running, they're good for just about everything else. Anything that does not have a squishy heel is good. I use Vibram FiveFingers and Puma K Streets for just about everything. I also have a pair of Do-Win weightlifting shoes for dedicated lifting. For running CF advocates flat shoes.

Barefoot or VFF feel the best for me. Sneakers and ankle injuries go hand in hand for me.

The more I workout in my VFF's, the more I do not want to work out in anything else.

I second the VFFs. Best shoes I've ever bought.

Really? The VFF? I never even thought of using those. I have a pair that I use for yoga (I sweat too much to stay on the mat!) I'll give those a try! Thanks guys!

Re: Best Shoes for Crossfit...

I generally wear low-top Converse. However if I'm doing a lot of running I'll wear my Puma's or Under-Armour running shoes.
It really messes with my bad knee and my calves if I run in my Converse too much.
