    well... those are retail prices. You could go to a store and get them right away for the same price.

    how much support do you need? I have a problem rolling my ankles so when I'm playing ball or something I have to wear a soft brace (the slip on kind) but squatting in just chucks is fine.

    Has anyone tried low-top chucks for squatting? I know the benefit of using chucks is that they have a strong sidewall so you can push out. Would low-tops be sufficient or should I just go for high-tops?

    I got some Free 7.0's on the way but they're backordered.

    I squat in a pair of Sambas and run/upper body in my shitty old Nike Shox.
