Wrestling shoes for deadlifting? Brands?

My converse finally got laid to rest after about 2-3 years of usage and been noticing some people deadlift in wrestling shoes and considering ordering a pair instead of another pair of converse. Anyone else do this and could recommend some good pairs? (preferably under $150).
