Weightlifting Shoes

I have been working out and lifting weights for a good few months now. I feel like I have hit a plateau on my squats especially. So for this reason, I am going to be looking at getting a pair of weightlifting shoes. Hopefully these will help me to push through my plateau and allow me to get stronger than ever before.

For those that don't know, weightlifting shoes have a more suitable design for lifting weights.

They also many other advantages such as being breathable and having a better strapping system so they fit better to the feet.
