Think it doesn't matter what kind of shoes you wear?
BS, it does matter. I hate seeing all these shocks and high heal shoes on everyone. Plus what is this fad about not tying your shoes and letting them flop around on your feet? Anyway. Here is my point. When you are doing any lower body posterior chain movement, you need your heal as close to the ground as possible. We take our shoes off for all dead lifts and hip thrusters. Even on some squats we'll take shoes off, just to emphasis push off your heal and driving up. Has made a huge difference. When your heal is on the ground your hamstring and glutes will fire quicker. Plus it will help with flexibility and dorsi flexion in your ankles, which is very poor in many athletes.
What do you think? Shoes on? Shoes off?
