I had only seen one person in real life use heel lifter shoes. He was a competitive weightlifter when he was in high school. I assumed it was only for the Oly lifts to stay more upright. I also assumed it was better for me to stick with minimal shoes or barefoot to practice and improve ankle dorsiflexion, etc. I also thought I would be a poser if I wasn't at a minimum lifting 4/5/6 plates for the bench/squat/DL, respectively for it to matter. I wish I would have tried them long ago. Every lift is better in them, even deadlifts. The acceleration out of the bottom is noticeably faster in both the squat and deadlift. My posture is better and shifting the load to my legs more makes every lift feel less "dangerous" and susceptible to injuries. I saw a video of Rippetoe rebutting a statement that shoes aren't natural like barefoot. His rebuttal was that lifting a barbell wasn't natural either so use the shoes. I just picked up some Do-Wins from Rogue; what shoes are your favorite? Who do you recommend use them and why?
