    I always squat in my socks. No tennis shoes, because i feel the heels give to much. Other options are work boots, wrestling shoes, or sqaut shoes.

    Ever get the feeling that you heels are a little to elevated with shoes?

    Re: Do you ever squat barefoot?

    when i first started training. squats were always done bare foot. it had a lot to do with the gym i trained at rather than anything specific. never felt there was anything wrong with it.

    Are you flat footed?

    I read something off an article that using flat shoes are best for squats....

    Re: Do you ever squat barefoot?

    Yeah I read that too. I do feel like my heels are somewhat elevated though. I would think that proves true with heel raises too. Without shoes, you'd have a better ROM.
