I didn't get any magical increases in working capacity 280x7 vs 285x6 w/ shoes, but my mechanics/form felt the best it has ever felt, no tight hips in the bottom, no tipping forward out of the hole. If my quads hadn't cramped up so much I could have probably pushed through another rep or two.
I think I'll still be using my Asics wrestling shoes for deadlifts as I prefer a fairly wide stance and I think the heel height would be counter productive with a wide stance (squat or deadlift).
