Dress shoes are likely better to lift in then the average running shoe . I'm not even kidding smile.gif

I've seen people suggest work boots for similar reasons

Don't see the problem unless you're doing your leg workout or need better balance for certain exercises.

I lift in flip flops and pop them off to squat or dl etc, but a lot of places don't want you to be barefoot unfortunately

I lift in Asics Onasuka shoes...fairly flat, pretty much like an indoor soccer shoe.

I run in Newtons. If I double I'll generally space it out to allow my body a rest period so I rarely wear the same shoes for either, but NEVER run in the Asics.

Run and lift in the same shoes, VFFs.

I've done a few lifting sessions lately wearing a pair of New Balance Minimus, and I haven''t noticed much of a difference until today. In the new shoes I found it MUCH easier to maintain proper form doing front squats, and I had to drastically shorten my strides doing walking lunges. Both of which are good things.

So I mentioned I lift barefoot...not exactly true. Specifically, I lift in these:

They're just yoga socks. Can be purchased at any Walmart/Target or Dick's Sporting Goods for about $10. I love having the grip on the bottom because I feel less likely to slip.

There's gripped slippers some people use, but I feel I'm able to get the best grip with these as they are toe socks. I love them both for squats and deadlifting.
