    Flat or raised heel lifting shoes?

    August 20, 2018, 10:32 am

    Hey everyone!

    I'm thinking about buying new shoes for lifting. All I've ever used are old running shoes which suck for compounds like squatting, and old vans with a flat bottom which seem to be better for compounds. This would be my first pair of lifiting shoes, so I'm wondering if I should get shoes with a flat bottom like Chucks, or a raised heal like the olympic lifting shoes? I'm tall, 6'2" with long legs and a pretty high foot arch. 

     

    Any reccomendations are appreciated, thanks!

    @iaretyler If you want the best of the best, get some proper lifting shoes with a raised heel. They are actually really, really useful for squatting. But, if you don't want to spend that much money, and you're comfortable squatting on a flat surface, then go with something liek wrestling shoes, chucks, or just barefeet/socks haha.

     

    Because you're quite tall, a proper lifting shoe will probably help you a lot in terms of getting deeper into your squat.
