    Personal preference for me is good work boots or barefoot. Hope it helps

    I like the feel of Vibram 5 finger shoes when deadlifting. Anything else feels weird.

    Merrill Vapor Gloves. Basically vibram five finger shoes but people won’t stare at you with righteous indignation because it’s a normal wide toe box

    I’m fine with chucks. Sometimes I’ll use Nike Blazers or SBs. I’d used deadlift slippers if I didn’t pull sumo.

    I use reebok nano 8s they areny specifically deadlift shoes but they’re pretty flat. And good for my wide feet.

    I second indoor soccer shoes.

    On days that I only deadlift, that’s what I wear. On days that I squat first, I’ll have on weightlifting shoes which changes the leverage with the added heel height. Hasnt affected my lifts so far

    Ryderwear D-Mak Rogue for deadlifting .......

    Sabo Powerlift for squats........

    Both are fit for purpose.

    If you are not competing then just either bare foot (I dont like it, never could get comfortable) or any flat bottom shoes (I like cross fit shoes).
