Default How about a PM article on proper footware, rooting, etc. for lifting

After about 2 weeks of lifting, I am quite pleased with my suede blue Do-Wins. Squatting feels completely different and right with them. I do not know if it is a rebound effect, better stability,or whatever you call it, but I swear that my cleans feel stronger and more crisp with the shoes. And I know, at first, I was against suede but they do look super-cool. These are good quality and, most importantly, affordable shoes. I plan on starting Rippetoe's Intermediate or Advanced program in about 2 weeks and I recommend these to anyone wishing to do likewise or start a OL program.

I strongly believe in the importance of the proper, specfic footware for daily activities, orthopedic problems and athletics. Most people just go for the softest most affordable shoe and I often see people wearing the wrong shoes for the wrong activities. I have even seen foot problems in the 12 and 13 year olds I coach.
Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

I beseech you therefore,brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. Romans 12:1
