Nike Train Prime Iron DF Shoe for Squats?


Have always used chucks or just barefoot for squats so I know nothing about squat shoes. Got Nike train prime iron df shoes for Christmas and just wondering if they are good for squats? I know they aren’t for deads because they aren’t close to the ground, they have a slight elevated heel which is why I’m wondering if they could be used as squat shoes maybe?

Tried to look this up but couldn’t find anything about it, thanks for any replies


What did it feel like when you squatted in them? That’s the best way to tell.


They look like runners or cross trainers, so at a guess they would suck for any lift where you’re on your feet. Might be good for benching though, if the sole is sticky.
