Once I got used to them I did ok, I still didn't feel exactly normal just a little different center of balance if that makes any sense.

Did anyone else have a learning curve when they went to lifting shoes?

I bought some just for squats intiially, I had three of four workouts in a row where I had a really hard time keeping my weight back, even for stuff like KB snatches. Also was sore as hell in the quads.

In the end I switched up my stance and feel alot more natural in them now. I even deadlift in them except for max attempts.
