I don’t compete in olympic lifting but perform many front squats and play around with high pulls and cleans. The front squat is the main lift in which I am concerned about improving. My max is currency 152kg. Previously I have been squatting barefoot. I have realized that the dorsiflexion in the bottom position of the lift makes me less comfortable in the hole. I tried front squatting with the smallest plates under my heal and it felt great. I felt like I could focus on being explosive rather than thinking about my ankles.
I have decided that I want to purchase lifting shoes. Could you recommend a lifting shoe? I want something that is not to expensive and will help with my squatting.
