What's wrong with lifting in running shoes? I lift in my nike fs light runs and never had any issues.

@Dreamworx
solid kek, they're way too heavy for running in.

If you don't have weightlifting shoes just prob the heal of your foot up with a 1.25 or 2.5kg plates for things like squats

I just had to retire my 10 year old chucks I've had since my starting strength days. Told my wife I threw them out but I think I might bury them in the backyard out of respect.

Literally had blood on the tongue from shin-scrapingly brutal deadlift prs. I'm worried no shoe will ever feel the same.

@Fried_Sushi
Lifting shoes are flat bottomed. You technically want a bit of heel on a squat to activate quads. You want a flat bottom shoe for everything.

Putting a weight underneath the heal of your running shoe is retarded.

To be fair, I always wore skate shoes from teen years till last year (I'm 36) just because they were always fucking comfortable - but I fancied something new and better for walking/running in and a colleague mentioned New Balance - never even heard of them before.

Now I won't wear anything else. Fucking hell, light, comfortable, decent lasting - highly, highly recommend.

Depends on what I'm doing; I wear converse when doing things like squats, and just some running shoes when doing stuff that doesn't require as much balance (like curls)

Your point? Off-white took an iconic, beautiful shoe and made it hideous. Just because it's expensive doesn't mean it looks good, off-white J's are hideous

Firespawn

Heel lifts help you stay more upright during the squat and prevent a valgus collapse caused by imbalances in the lower body musculature.

Olympic shoes could help you early on in your squatting career, but they could hinder performance later.

The majority of record-holding powerlifters don't wear Olympic shoes.

If you have a quad dominant squat with a narrow stance, or have hypertrophy-oriented goals, Olympic squat shoes may be right for you.

If you have a hip dominant squat with a medium to wide stance and strength-oriented goals, Chuck Taylors may be your best choice.
