When deadlifting, you don’t want to wear shoes that have a shock, a spring or an absorbing sole on them.  This will cause an unstable surface for you to pull from.  Most good or elite deadlifters wear wrestling shoes or go in deadlifting socks.

This does two things:

  1. decreases the distance you have to pull the weight
  2. provides a flat, stable surface to push against
