I thought some strongman competitors use rock climbing shoes and that might be an idea.

I can't imagine that Chucks would be great for pulling a semi, but depending the tennis shoe it might not be much better.

Rock climbing shoes for the win. So much grip. I have found that tennis shoes/squash shoes etc just get the bottoms tarnished by heavy pulling and extensive friction.

Rock climbing shoes are definitely the way to go.

With what you have available I would say that whichever one fits your foot the best and has the most tread would be the best option.
