    Why do the serious lifters wear converses?

    I've been to like 4 gyms and i noticed that the people who could lift a lot or were actually muscular wore converse shoes. It's like a universal thing. Is it because of the flat bottom? I wear basketball shoes and now i'm concerned if they aren't the best lifting shoes. What shoes do you guys wear?

    Feels good man.

    I think it's because they're so flat.

    ive never seen a single lifter wearing converses. It could just be a local thing. I know people who lift barefoot. but none of them

    You should ask this in the powerlifiting section. I'm only making assumptions but I think it's because they're so flat. Keeps your heels flat and lower to the ground and less chance of rolling over the soles.

    one of my mates who started way earlier than me wears converses for deadlifting (no high top, the ankle-cut ones). he says it's because of the flat sole, it helps him balance his weight.

    pretty much what was said, flat sole - more natural, although in reality barefoot is the best for deads and squats. Also, there is no cushion so you don't lose any force your body puts out, it goes straight through the floor. An opposite to that would be nike shox where you can lose alot of force because its being absorbed through the shoxs.

    They're flat, that's why.
    I prefer squatting and deadlifting in my socks though.

    Even during a competition I always wear deadlift socks instead of shoes.

    THIS, and they have good lateral support which is ideal for squatting

    they are a flat/hard sole that won't compress when under heavy loads....this is why powerlifters where them atleast.

    Because of the flat sole, it makes sense for deadlift but I don't understand how someone uses it for squats, need a wooden oly heel for them, even though I'm flexable enough to go barefoot.
