Deadlift Slippers

Never seen one, but been wanting to get one pair for while, my socks are getting all fcked up!! will they work for squats as well?

I asked a question about footwear awhile ago and it seemed alot of folks are using the old Chuck Taylors from Converse.


I wouldn’t use them for squatting b/c they provide absolutely no lateral support, at least the ones I have. I picked up some deadlift slippers from titan powerlifting for $5 and use chuck taylor’s for squatting.

Ive decided not to use anything besides wrestling shoes until I deadlift 800lbs. Because then it wont matter how gay it looks, nobody will say anything.
