also, don't know if this is allowed or if anyone knows but how do trainers compare to lunarglide 5s for the gym?

 

(i ask because i wanna grab one from nike with the discounts just don't know which one)

I have no problems with the Trainer as being my multi-purpose gym shoes.  I lift and run (short distance) in them.

What do yall need support to do squats for? You really don't need support to do squats. We used to have to do squats barefoot to develop muscles in the feet and ankles.

True. I always do dead lift and squats barefoot or with olympic lifting shoes. Vans or Chucks also work well since they have a solid falt sole

post #15818 of 84693
I started squatting in my Trainers and I've actually found them to be great.

I've done and still do both. Squatting sucks for sure. The heel cup is too high compared to the toes, putting a lot of force on your toes and causing a lot of form issues. Deadlifting is kind of whatever. The soles of racers are pretty soft so it feels a little weird when you do it. If you're like me and have wide/flat feet, you'll definitely feel that lack of support because of the narrow soles on racers. I would recommend a lot of people just deadlift barefoot instead, since that way your feet are flat on the ground. Either way, I'm too lazy to take of my shoes so I just deal with it laugh.gif

x2 . I do as well have wide flat feet. I squatted and deadlift in both racers and trainers! Racers just doesn't do the job! But trainers do:)

I have both Flyknit Trainers and Racers even dropped $200 for the Hyperfeel and none of those provides the stability that I need for squats and esp. deadlifts. Even the Hyperfeel feels a tad bit too squishy (with the lunarlon insole) for squats and deadlift. I know this is a NikeTalk forum, but I'd highly recommend looking into the New Balance Minimus 20v3 for deadlifting and squatting. Hands down those are the best "barefoot" shoes out there imho...

I tried squatting in trainers and it was so unbelievably terrible, I felt like my feet were breaking. I currently squat in Adidas sambas. You should stop doing those workouts in trainers before you hurt yourself.
