    Shoes for leg day

    I have been using general training shoes from Dicks for lifting for ever. Is there a better shoe to wear for leg day specifically if doing squats?

    I have a few friends that go barefoot but i never fell comfortable when trying it. Thanks

    I like a powerlifting or olympic lifting shoe. I have the adidas but there are many out there that have the solid sole and a bit of a heel wedge. I wear it all the time but it's really for squats and deadlifts.

    I love wearing Otomix during legs. Really comfortable and feels like your barefoot

    I squat better in shoes that are made for squatting. Right now I use and like Do-Win Classic lifter. It has a stacked (0.75 inch) heel and two cross straps for stability. These would not be great for deadlifting -- I use deadlifting slippers with straps for those.

    Get the nike metcons.. you probably have to order them I could not find them in a normal shoe store like finish line or foot locker. but they have a very stable base and come with heal inserts if you want to use them. I would not run in them though they are to clunky. I used to just lift in running shoes and these made a huge difference in stability.

    I have the Nike Metcon Sport. Not super expensive or heavy, but still a decent lifting shoe. Pretty comfortable too.

    I have always used hi top Chucks. Not much cushion and the bottoms are really flat.

    Shoes for leg day

    I almost went with the Asics wrestling shoes hoping just putting them would make my quads grow like Nasty-Bam. But came across a Converse outlet store this weekend in Boston and grabbed some chucks.

    Thanks for the help guys.
