i cant say that i there are many shoes that i would say i just want to lift in, but Nike free's are my favorite trainers. The new Nike Free Run are the best pair of trainers ive ever had.

I've heard great things about actual purpose built lifting shoes. My sisters coach actually forced her to use a pair when training and they helped out a ton. They keep you on the balls of your feet and really help you stay balanced and planted for things like squats.

I don't know if thats what your looking for. They can be expensive and I don't know if you can do other workout stuff other than lifting.

No shoes or lifting shoes (although they certainly don't keep you on the balls of your feet, but instead provide a wooden heel that you can drive off of) are usually best. Chuck Taylors are great, especially for deadlifts. Any cross training/cushiony shoe is a recipe for disaster.
