as long as you dont have ankle issues, a pair of running flats or lightweight trainers are awesome.

they are light, comfortable, very soft so you can feel what you are walking on, work fine completly wet and wont hold water, and most are made to be used in the rain/bare foot.

One time I wore flip flops when I was playing at a friends house cuz I forgot my shoes. They fell off while I was sprinting down a hill to get to a tree for cover. I then slipped on the wet grass and broke my wrist. I still played out the rest of the game though with one hand. Afterwards I got an x-ray 3 days later and my wrist was officially broken.

Lesson:

Flip Flops+wet grass+dodging paintballs+downhill incline=broken wrist

I rate flip flops a 4/10.
They are very lightweight but offer little feeling of security and little or no traction when they are off of your feet.

Also, the "flip flop flip flop flip flop" isn't exactly a stealthy noise most snipers are looking for.
I would not recommend flip flops for paintball. :)

I use two pair. It just depends on the time of year and what not.

I use a pair of painted (Yes I got bored and painted and latex clear coated them) jungle boots. I also use a pair of no-shine desert boots. I love them both because of the Panama soles. A friend of mine has a pair of civilian rip-off panama sole junglish looking boots he got at work cuz he could get a discount. In all honesty I like mine better than his :)

Hunting boots are your best bet. Take a look at cabelas. They carry a very nice selection of boots. I wear the Irish setter mountain paws. Some of the warm weather boots are very lightweight and are meant to create the least amount of noise possible. You do not want to make noise when you are in the woods stalking deer. They also provide great traction and water proofing.

Turf cleats. Make sure you get them in white.

Joking aside, hunting or combat boots work well for pretty much any kind of outdoor paintball.

I've used combat boots of one type or another for years, but then I am in the Army and have several pair laying around. The new rough-out boots the Army and Marines have gone to are nice. They are light (get the Altama jungle style) and the brown color works well for those times you end up with a foot sticking out much better than all black boots. I play in southern Texas right now and the Altama boots have a steel shank which helps with the mesquite and cactus we deal with here (I had a mesquite thorn punch through the sole of my Magnums).

I've tried hiking boots and combat boots. Hiking boots in my opinion offer the most comfort because of all the padding they have. And depending on which brand you buy, they feel light compared to combat boots. However, combat boots provide more ankle support and have a feeling that they are attached to your feet because they lace up higher than hiking boots. If you can get them to fit right and once you wear them in, they feel like they are part of your body, especially if you have a nice insert in there. As for noise, my issued boots have a softer bottom so even when running on hard surfaces, the noise isn't too bad.

Myself, I usually wear skate shoes. I don't usually slip, maybe only once but that was a sticky situation. I find skate shoes are the most comfy thing I can wear and are pretty quiet. My first pair were red Lakai Decoys and I loved those things. But they were old and red. I wear brown Etnies Townsends now and they are pretty baller.

Foot protection should be your first priority. I wear combat boots people can't hear me with all the markers being fired.

i wear thigh high waders under my camies, cuz i play all year round and in a harsh enviroment. they come in handy exspecialy in the winter, cuz i play around creeks and ponds. intead of looking for a bridge i can just walk right thru them . hell i even hide in them from time to time.

they also provide protectiont from thorns and bristles, glass, jagged metal, and they help deflect balls. they seem very heavy the first day of play but after 3 years of wereing them i dont even notice them. the day after the first time i wore them, i didnt walk the whole day cuz the pain was inbearble( 24 hour scenario). just remember to stretch.
