    Best deadlift shoes

    So I bought sabo deadlift shoes and I am disappointed.
    I am a sumo deadlifter, they are slippery and don't have enough support. I switched back to nike backboard II they are beasts for deadlifting. Maybe they have thicker sole, but the support they offer is just amazing.

    Get these guys:

    I am deadlifting 265kg maybe I know what I am talking about, maybe not.
    They are awesome af.

    What's your stance width, foot angle, and torso angle like? I have a few people that compete in my state and have the Sabos and love them. This is the first actual time I've heard negatives on them.

    Pretty much anything flat with a solid sole. I wear Chuck's since they're cheap and they work great.

    Reebok Crossfit Lite TRs if you can find them. Really well made. Have tons of grip. I've had mine for almost a year and they still have plenty of grip. Mind you I only wear them in the gym and no where else.

    I don't put out my foot too much, but i will make an image.
    Torso angle is between wide stance sumo and conventional deadlift so it's like a semi sumo angle.

    Torso angle is between wide stance sumo and conventional deadlift so it's like a semi sumo angle.
    interesting, I pulled in Lite TRs and went to wrestling shoes, not too much of difference.

    I also got the TR's when that guy posted about the sale too. So far have been pulling in the Reebok TR's and also in low top chucks. I prefer the comfort and grip of the TRs for everything but deadlifting. I still love chucks.

    For sumo? No thanks. I need side support, they have zero.

    Another vote for TRs. After blowing up my Chucks I got them because they were about the same price. After a year of use the TRs are my favorite.

    Yeah we may need to put a caveat in on the Crossfit Lite TR shoes as even the Mid 2.0s are low/no stock and Reebok doesn't appear to be making more. Sad as it's a fantastic shoe. I now wish I'd bought at least another pair or two for backups.
