I'm looking for an affordable pair on shoes that are ideal for powerlifting. Basically something that's flat and flexible. I know a lot of people use chucks, but I'm looking for someting slightly more althletic. Any suggestions?

You know you want the chucks. They'll match your Ramones haircut, sunglasses, and leather jacket.

I guess this means you've given up on lifting barefoot?

No one lets me lift barefoot these days. It's quite saddening.

Wrestling, oly lifting, and skater shoes work well.

Would you be able to suggest brand(s)? I'm a bit ******ed when it comes to shopping.

I'm partial to adidas for wrestling and soccer shoes. Not familiar with brands for oly, just threw it out as an option. For skater shoes, I was quite pleased with a pair of airwalks. Cheap, flat, thin, and wide sole.

Not what I'd wear, but I think these would probably be all right (Adidas Sambas): http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/product/index.jsp?productId=97783

A lot of guys on my PL team deadlift in their socks. If you can't do that (or you'll be competing), try just finding some climbing shoes or aquasocks at any outdoor gear store. I bought mine for $6.99 and they work great.

Work boots are great for squatting. If you want to compete, check with your fed that work boots are ok.

These were nice, but a bit narrow. That's why I traded them in for the airwalks.

I wear Converse all stars (not chucks). They are leather flat sole basketball shoes.
