Do baseball, basketball, soccer and football players play barefoot? No. They don't. It would be stupid. Every sport has its own footwear for a reason. No one goes around saying that LeBron James is using his basketball shoes as a crutch.
Be one of the smart people. Buy some lifting shoes.
Stop paying attention to your shin angle. The amount of forward knee travel that you have is dictated by your anthropometry. Buy some shoes, add weight to the bar, and stop thinking about your knees outside of keeping them shoved out.
Well said. No pulled punches there!
