    I'm about to invest in a new pair of all-around gym shoes. What do you guys like/wear? Cross-trainer type shoes?

    Nike Crosstrainers that are 3-4 years old

    Chucks would be better for squat/deadlift though

    I just bought a pair of new Nike's. I can't remember the model, but they are more comfortable than my old 5 yr old Nikes that I did work out in.

    I've never used anything else so I couldnt give specifics. I dont feel much compression on the heels at all, since the sole is thin to begin with.
