Flat soled training shoes

So I am looking for a flat shoe to train in (no running, I've got nike frees for that) I've got oly shoes, but am looking for a flat soled shoe that doesn't compress much. I am not a fan of chucks other than as a walking around shoe, and therefore am looking at adidas superstars, sambas and the reebok crossfit lite tr aka powerlifting shoe.

the problem is I can only find the adidas shoes, the crossfit lite tr I can't seem to find it anywhere, anyone know of a place (even online) where to buy them? I'm only seeing women's

Puma suedes can be picked up from Amazon for as little as $30 a pair, depending on your size and color preference.

Vans makes some nice ones but the drawback is they are quite pricey.

Steven YES those, nowhere to be found, in Canada.

Stacy I've never liked Pumas I find the sole to narrow (my foot is wider)

Rob: Vans are cheap here! But I'm not a fan of them for training, more for casual walking around

They have them on the reebok ca site, too, but the color and sizes are a bit limited

Re: Flat soled training shoes

You should check out the Strike Movement Chill-Pill Transits. They look like normal shoes (i.e. Vans), have a 2.5mm drop, and have one of the low profile, dense outsoles I've ever used.
