Hard sole and an elevated heel gives you a more stable, non compressing foundation for squats, presses, deadlifts, and o-lifts. Non compressing is important because you lose power with compressible soles as force is transmitted into the floor.

For running, jumping, or anything else that requires lots of foot flexation, I just use regular cross trainers.

how do those compare to other shoes you have? i usually squat/dl in chuck taylors. what about the nikes virgle do they have solid soles/how are they for lifts like squats/dl.

I've squatted both barefoot (with broken toes) and in chucks. The combination of the wider base and slight heel of the lifting shoes make my lifts feel much more solid. First time I squatted in them, I felt like my feet were nailed to the floor.
