Changing from Squatting in Flat Shoes

I’m just after getting myself a pair of weightlifting shoes (Addidas Powerperfect II) to help with my squat I’ve always squatted in Cons (chuck taylors) for years up to now and it feels very strange using the shoes, anyone have any tips on making the changeover? Cheers!

Just something you have to get used to. It took me a little while getting to my previous strength level with flat shoes, but I’m really loving them now. I just bought some cheap rogue do-wins.
