    Gadsie, Arnold Schwarzenegger used to work out barefoot. A sneaker isn't going to help you much if you drop a plate on your foot.

    I picked up a pair of these specifically for squatting and they are very nice 2012 Rogue Weightlifting Shoes. Are you high or low bar squatting? It almost looks like highbar from your back angle/bar position. Although it's hard to tell...

    He also used to stick a needle in his butt.

    A leather shoe will dissipate some of the force and will protect against low drops, but you're right, a 45lb plate dropped from a couple feet can break your toes no matter what gym shoe you're wearing.
    I didn't like the rules you gave me, so I made some of my own.
