No I wouldn’t recommend against it. Two of my training partners wear them and have great success.

I did try a pair of Olympic shoes once but they throw me off balance too much.

I personally do not like Chucks. After a few uses they wear down too much and the canvas lacks the needed support. I use Van skateboard shoes, leather high-tops. The soles are made to grip a skateboard and grip the floor great when squatting. Also, it takes a long time to wear out the thick leather.

If you are used to lifting with them and they work fro you, stay with them.
