Most heel weighted powerlifting shoe (not heeled)

Tell me, do you know if a powerlifting shoe exists flat and essentially heel weighted. All the weight inside the heel itself, making the body exist in a perfectly ergonomically state? Sorry if I talk like I'm in riddles. That's just how I communicate.
