I do zerchers barefoot and with a 1/2"-3/4" heeled shoe; they both have a different feel to the movement and although I don't prefer one above the other, I reckon with the heel feels like a smoother movement.

Back squats I've only just started but decided to use the shoes and seemd fine, no throwing me off balance etc; that could well be because I've done zerchers though or because I've also practised the wall squat (Pavel style).

I wonder whether it's not so much the heel throwing a person forward, when that occurs, but more a case of worry about sitting back with the weight load.
