Good training shoes!

If you ever get to the point where you want to invest in some training shoes, don't buy overpriced shoes. Get a pair of:

Chuck Taylor Converse All Stars
The benefits are clear:
-Stable
-Cheap
-Flat sole
-Looks good to almost everything

The chucks are affordable and provide stability for the whole foot, but the best part about chucks is the absolute thin flat sole. The only better thing than working out in chucks is working out barefoot. You will look for a flat sole to get a better feeling to the ground while doing excercises like squats and deadlifts.

This boots are getting used since a long time in bodybuilding and powerlifting circles, because of their benefits. Sure you could invest in some 250$ lifting shoes, or invest 80$ in a shoe that provides the same features.

  7. Interesting although I wonder how long the thin sole on these lasts compared to a pair of more conventional running shoes.

  9. i had a pair, but I never cared for them. maybe it's because i always just wiggled my feet into my shoes instead of pulling on the back and slipping them in, but the back part always got destroyed in.

  29. Wouldn't recommend them for any kind of extended running though, used to jog in a pair and the lack of any substantial padding made for some sore feet.

  36. But if you walk/run not on a flat surface, your feel will get tired really fast.

  38. Not sure about these shoes. But, every flat shoe that I've bought seems to have terrible grip. Meaning that I can't walk without slipping after a few weeks.
