    Weightlifting shoes or Wrestling shoes?

    There is likely a better place to ask this...but the traffic on the Misc section will likely get me better answers than in the equipment section.

    I would like some shoes with little to no shock absorption. wrestling shoes are a cheap alternative to the Adidas weight lifting shoes which start at $130 online.

    I can get a pair of wrestling shoes locally (I get to try them on first) for just $40.

    I am pretty sure the wrestling shoes have a much more narrow base than a weightlifting shoe but similar in shock absorption.

    Can anyone comment on this? I will not pay $130 for weightlifting shoes online...and nobody locally sells them (that I know of).

    Can anyone give any insight into using wrestling shoes for squats and deadlifts?

    Or can you provide links to cheaper weight lifting shoes online?

    I also tried on an indoor pair of soccer shoes...they were too tight for my comfort...but they offered relatively little shock absorption...and they were int he $40 range also.

    I have a pair that I paid $80 for... Otomix Ultimate Trainers. If you sign up for their newsletter they will send you, practically the next day, codes for online discounts of up to 20% and stuff. You can score some very nice lifting shoes at a fairly reasonable price there.

    I've heard that Converse shoes work good because they have a nice flat sole. Also they are made of canvas which helps support the foot as it is pushed outward while squatting.

    EDIT: I usually squat in my socks...
