    Chucks. I have a pair of chucks and a pair of Jordan 5's. I like both for squats adn deads.

    Although.. the last 2 weeks, I've squated in jeans and work boots. I plan to do this from now on, it's awsome.

    Why would you deadlift in Chucks? I don't really deadlift at all, but it would seem to me that DLing in your socks or wrestling shoes would be better.

    my adidas superstar classics have a hard heel and toe sole...ill keep those for squats then. i use shoulder width squat stance.

    i dont plan on competing, just finding the most comfortable shoe with potential and lets me pull on heavy deads.

    as for wrestling shoes, what should i look for when visiting the shoe store besides the thin flat and grippy bottom sole?
