I use a cheap pair of thin soled flat shoes for deadlifting. Everything else I use Rogue Do Wins.

That's what I use too. Can't beat $10 for a perfect pair of lifting shoes.

I deadlift in just socks (I don't mean I am unclothed apart from that), though I am continually stubbing my toes on equipment. For squats, I use adidas ironworks or some flat-soled boots. A lot of Dutch guys lift in traditional clogs.

Interesting answers guys, especially since a good number use a different style of shoe for each of the lifts.

Clogs, wow, I assume because they are a solid wood and sturdy piece of footwear.

Chucks for all lifting. I used to go barefoot back '09-'10 but the trainers started to annoy me about it even when I wore socks.

I just wear my running shoes when I'm at the gym and doing weights. Main reason is because I also run on the tradmill during the session, so it's easier.
