I just picked a pair up, should I wear them when dead lifting to?
Try them out and see if you like it. I haven't when I tried them. They are nice to wear benching though.

I've never worn them for deadlifting. It wouldn't hurt to try. Let us know how you like it!
I wouldn't squat without them. I use them for hacks, leg press, and squats. I feel like I'm glued to the ground and I can achieve a much better up right position at the bottom of the squat.
I always squat and deadlift barefoot. Is there much difference between barefoot and a specialty shoe??
I got some Do-Wins a while back and love squatting with them. I like deadlifting with them but don't feel like it is the same advantage, I do just as well with some chucks.

Big ragu, there is a huge difference squatting barefoot and squatting with oly shoes.
Nsculuke, the oly shoes would put the weight more forward since the heel is raised, you want to pull in a flat soled shoe.
Best shoes to pull in- driving shoes, no question. (As in racing shoes) Grippy as hell flat soled bottom, sturdy leather top, and nearly zero sole thickness.

Why not barefoot? or the above post if you need some grip or train in a fancy shmancy gym
personal preference, but I don't like deadlifting in mine.

Is there a good all around shoe? Something to squat, dead, and press in?
