Converse Chuck II Low Top
Did you know that Converse make a great lifting shoe? The Converse Chuck II Low Top ($55, originally $70) has cushioned Nike soles, too. Liz approves: "Converse fit all of the requirements for lifting — they allow the foot to spread naturally within the shoe and they have a flat sole," she said. "Ideally you would lift barefoot, but if this isn't possible for you or your gym rules, this may be the next best thing."
