Was looking at chucks and found that, despite all the acclaim they get for squatting shoes, the soles were still very soft and spongy. Maybe it was just the brand and other brands have thinner, harder soles? And what other good shoes with flat soles are there?

Thanks guys, might try the Asda George replicas since they're only a tenner and if they are wank then I'm not really out of pocket.

Socks?

Vibram fingers? Deadlift slippers?

Socks don't provide enough grip against the wooden platforms. Vibram fingers are f**king gay and look stupid. However, deadlift slippers are a good suggestion.

There's a whole bunch of minimalist running shoes that either have Vibram soles or their own version of it so you can have the tiny thickness without the weird toe bits. I use Merrell Trail Gloves, which have a Vibram sole but a nice roomy toe-box instead of the separate toes.
