Very solid base, low to the ground, and comfy... is the reason I wear them.

Flat shoes are great if you're a very wide squatter. But if you're a narrow or medium stance squatter then I'd go with some olympic lifting squat shoes with a raised heel.

Would vans slip ons be okay? They have a flat botton like chucks and I have a pair lying around.

The chucks do offer a little ankle stability, but they're not mandatory. Squat in what you want to as long as you're squatting.
