What do people wear for weight lifting shoes and/or for CrossFit?  I've been wearing my running shoes, but they seem to encourage me to put my weight forward when I'm lifting.   


I wear chucks when deadlifting and proper squat shoes with a slightly lifted heel for squats. Anything with a flat, hard sole that doesn't compress is okay. I think some vans have such a sole but I don't know which other brands do. The lifted heel on the squat shoes can be useful for squatting if you have limited ankle mobility, but it's not necessary.

Converse sneakers or any of it's ripoff. Yet I too find bare feet superior for squats (my only type of weight-lifting). 


Running shoes (mostly) have cushioned sole under the heel to act like shock absorber.

So running shoes aren't.
