Loved the article. I'm just now discovering the importance of deadlifting without tennis shoes on.

I love my Chucks. In fact, I love them so much my daughters are picking up on the love. My oldest daughter wears them too.

I wear the fancy Asics, with a soft gel cup heel. I've also gone barefoot at home, and see no difference. Then again, at home I'm standing on a soft gym floor material. I also run after I lift, so it's easier to just finish lifting, then start running without having to switch shoes... Not allowed to wear barefoot at my gym either...

I have seen those foot gloves a few people at my gym wear, but if it's the same as barefoot I'll go with Chucks to save money..

Wearing a pair of 90s adidas i found in a dumpster years ago for squats and deadlifts, they once were red, i think.
