    I already have the canvas chucks but, was wondering if the leather chucks were any better. Does anybody have the leather chucks and do they offer anymore support for heavy weightlifting or is the difference minimal? Thx

    I don't think it matters.

    Honestly, I leave my chucks untied and only wear them cause 99% of gyms require shoes. I don't imagine there would be a big difference between the canvas & leather in support in the same shoe design.

    Don't see how that would make any difference where it mattered.

    For lifting, I wouldn't think leather would be an improvement over canvas.

    If you have money to spend on shoes, buy some Oly shoes.

    Agreed...I'm definitely a boot guy, leather hi-top chucks would kinda walk the line between boots and shoes...I might get some if I didn't already have a crapload of boots.

    i always thought the leather chucks looked good from websites, but i saw someone wearing them in person and they looked pretty weird.
