Lacing Up

Pao puts on his 2004 Adistars before 14.4

Weightlifting shoes are a popular tool in strength training because they are totally flat with an elevated heel. This allows athletes to have a mechanical advantage in lifting heavy loads, as well as a solid, non-compressable base of support.

This elevation allows better range of motion for the ankles and therefore the hips, allowing the athlete to squat deep into the bottom in back squats, front squats, overhead squats, snatches, cleans, wall ball, thrusters, etc.

Nowadays people have plenty of options for lifting shoes. You should seriously consider investing in a pair if you're serious about your strength training!
