i stopped buying converse when nike bought them many years ago, when i switched, my knees and back improved. horrible shoes if you need any support.

My lifting buddy was told he couldn't wear his vibrams into the weight room. According to the director, the people who work there are too stupid to know the different between them and aquasocks, and aquasocks are a no-no.

When I go weightlifting I wear my weightlifting shoes (adidas Ironwork II) . Occasionally when I go to a more fitness type gym where it is not possible to do squats etc I use a pair of adidas stabil handball/floorball/indoor shoes. Running I do not do often but when I do I wear running shoes.

When I'm working out at home I like lifting barefooted. At the gym that's not allowed so I usually wear my running shoes. Can you run in the Vibram's? Is there any cushioning in them at all? They look like they'd be the closest to barefooted. I haven't ever seen them in any stores in my area. I usually end up wearing Brooks or Asics. So many, the majority it seems, at my gym wear Nikes. I don't think they're as great as some people make them out to be......but for whatever reason they seem most popular.

The vibrams are intended for running.

vibrams are for whatever one chooses. I wear 'em because they are esoteric, ya know some people like their cucumbers better pickled.
