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).

Should main lifts be the same?

My lifts are nowhere close to each other. Deadlift I did 435 for 2 and 205 bench for 1 and 290 squat for 1. Should they be as close to the same weight as possible, or is it ok for them to be way off?
