Cleat's!

I where Nike's mid top before that I had Rawling's cleat's both are effective.

You want a big cleat to dig in the front and if you can or have a choice a tapered cleat in the back. If not tapered no big deal.

cleats are cleats, if its that slippery out that u need em, if they have spikes ur gonna get traction, doesn;t matter what the formation of the spikes is.

i use soccer cleats cause i play soccer and i have em.

Come try baseball sliding on hard kentucky red clay just below the dirt/grass! It's a pain especially if the back cleat catches that's why I like it taper off.

Just my preferance and opinion that I threw out there! I'm sure he'll get a couple more odd opinion's too before this post dies.

Edit-
And if cleat's are cleat's then there would only be one type for all sport's. Just my opinion.

I use soccer cleats because I have like 3 pairs of them that fit me right now and they get super good traction. Soccer cleats are plenty light instead of the tennis shoes, you probably wouldn't notice it when you're playing. I say just go to male reproductive organ's sporting goods and pick up a $30 pair. They should last you and provide excactly what you're looking for

i don;t get how the back catches, and what u mean by tapered off, but it sounds painful if it does catch. and i;'m not trying to fight wih you, sorry if it came of that way. and i'm guessing red clay feels like frozen ground out here in Mass. EDIT: nvm i get it, a bsaeball slide ur feet are forward.

and yeah there are cleats for all different sports but u can use any of em for paintball.

I wear adidas baseball cleats. They are rubber cleats. Work great, much better that regular tennis shoes.

That is indeed the best avoidance of a stupid filter I've ever seen.

Anyway, I sport a pair of Nike Air 3/4 top football cleats. good traction, good ankle support, and gentler on my knees.

Sorry,

i think im the only one who don't wear cleats. i just play with some old skating shoes (Vans to be exact). their comfortable , light , and always keep me balanced. Sometimes wear my basketball shoes if i can't find the Vans. 8)

p.s.
you guys got horrible balance skills j/k lol

I shoud have mentioned that for woodsball/scenario at SkirmishUSA, I wear 11" all-leather boots...simply because of the terrain...

If in the woods I wear a pair of Altama Jungle boots, there light, have good traction, very durable and have great ankle support. Cost me a little less then $100 at the BX.

If speedball then I wear dye ATC Hydro Gel, they have great traction, they feel light to me (but I do where boots everyday to work), seem durable so far and not so good on ankle support. Cost me like $74 online.

for indoor i know that many places that use field turf, or fake grass, dont like it when you use cleats. they let me use my indoor soccer cleats though, and they work great. but i would rather have something with more ankle support, but its ahrd to find that without having the stubs on it. the indoor ones dont have any stubs.
