Question: "What’s your favorite shoes to wear for deadlifting? And can you ever compete barefoot?"
I personally like and wear wrestling shoes for deadlifting. The reasons for this are three-fold:
- Flat sole – you do not want a high heel on a shoe. This will put you in a bad position for deadlifting
- Very thin sole – the closer you are to the ground, the shorter the distance the bar has to move
- Lateral stability (for sumo pullers). I would say that I purchased a pair of Reebok Crossfit Lite TR shoes. I currently wear them for squatting only, but would not hesitate to wear them for deadlifting.
