    I don't even think about my shoes. I put them on, train all the lifts of the day, pull 'em off and leave the gym. Cheapo Adidas Powerlifts, but they do the job. But hey, people need excuses, so there's that.

    And in my 38 years of lifting weights, I do not know of, or have ever run into, a single person who would get worried or invested into the argument of deadlift footwear. A hill to die on as it were. That is, almost everyone with a basic knowledge of the barbell lifts would admit you can no doubt deadlift more barefoot (or in DL slippers) than in shoes or in lifters. But I know no one who worries about it to extent that is portrayed in the article. OR know of anyone who blamed their 'poverty deadlift' on their lifters.

    Maybe I am (always) at the wrong kind of gym.

    Would you consider me to have a basic knowledge of the barbell lifts?

    Did my last DL session in my lifting shoes (AKA 1/4Ē deficit deadlifts) just for fun. Didnít notice the difference from my thin-soled Adidas I usually use. Definitely noticed the added stability though.

    Then I guess you noticed the difference.
