    workout shoes depend on the workout....honestly id prefer to workout in flip flops or barefoot. Any straight weight workout I'll use any sort of flats (puma or onitsuka tigers). If there is any running I'll wear some sort of running shoe, doesn't matter really, the most recent pair of cheap reebok running shoes I used for both UltraMarathons and Ironman I found worked better than most 120 dollar shoes I've purchased. After years of training for various things I don't waste money on fancy clothes or shoes. The gym is for work, its not a fashionshow....but thats just my opinion.

    as far as workout gear, spandex is a must. Cotton is a sopping rag of blisters waiting to happen. I swear by my Asics for running - to each there own. honestly, good socks (not necessarily expensive) can make a world of difference. good socks do NOT contain cotton - see statement above. I think Chuck's and other flat shoes help weightlifting, or at least maxing out, but I have yet to get around to buying a pair.

    weightlifting, running shoes make a difference in wod's at maximizing performance and reducing injury. it only takes one set of squats w weightlifting shoes to feel the difference. in crossfit though, it gets tricky when its a lifting/running wod.

    I'm using lifting shoes. They definitely feel better when lifting, but i'm not sure that it's improved my 1RepMax'es or anything...

    AND.... my guess is that Patrick C could do the 100 bodyweight squats with way better form - he hit 36 yesterday!
