Do you fellow sumo pullers feel that shoes are of benefit to a sumo deadlifter ? I usually go with socks because I don't want the extra range of motion, but maybe I am missing out by not using shoes . Thoughts please ?
For me i love my converse for squatting and pulling

I'd wear Slippers if I didn't have my metal squat shoes. They are like slippers. Shame they aren't available any more.
