    Is this Squat too deep? Any other critiques of form will also be appreciated.

    Yes, they are too deep. Do not post sock-footed lifts on these forums.

    I understand, I don't really feel comfortable about this but I'll do as you say and post a barefoot video next time.

    I assume the OP is making a joke, in which case it's not bad at all

    So I was fully expecting an article on the dangers of bare footed squatting but instead Tuesday rolled around and the only article that dropped was called "How I Tried to Prove Mark Rippetoe Wrong"

    My days of trying to prove uncle Rip wrong are however, well past me as evidenced by this brand new pair of Chuck Taylors I immediately went out and bought.

    Anyway, I tried cutting off the depth a bit higher. Please let me know if I'm doing these right. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    It seems the Chucks aren't really optimal for weightlifting given the criteria you laid out but at the very least they do not have the easily compressible cushioned sole of most trainers.

    I take your silence on the Squat itself means that I have executed it flawlessly.

    May I ask, why are you thrusting your hips forward before descending every time?

    Too deep and you're loose in the bottom. Cut it off higher. Back angle too vertical - lean over more in the top half of the descent and send the knees forward early and freeze them as you approach the bottom.
