I use a pair of old black sneakers: silent, dark colored, and have gotten me bounces multiple times. That's mostly because your shoes are the least visible part of you in paintball, and I don't have the money to buy anything better...

i picked other becus when i move i need to be absolutely undetectable as possible and theres nothin better to stop the crackin of twigs and things then some black socks yes BLAcK SOCKS i would avoid roads made completely of rocks but otherwise your can go thru almost anything else quitely but if u have to where shoes i have some advise... step on the twigs paralell to the stick to spead your weight throughout the twig it really works but NOT always but 85% of the time. thats my 2 cents

I work at a Gas station called Wesco in Reed City, Michigan and our store offers a program call "Shoes For Crews" and they have a steel toe that is half shoe-half boot and its very well padded and cumfy! Thats what i use! It allows me to move easily through the woods without any straints! Also, its not about the shoe you wear, Its about how you walk! You gonna wear Mokasins when ur hunting or are you gonna watch where you are walking??

I prefer Combat boots. But I do not wear standars issue. Being quite is more about the person and how you prepare the rest of your gear than what shoes you were. How you stow your keys, whether or not your pods are completely full, ect.

I wear my regular Justin boots. Don't have a issue with walking quite, guessing that is just because i am used to it. just learn how to walk quietly, don't be stupid and step on sticks. It doesn't really matter the type of shoes you have, although if you have some kind of BULKY boot it MOST likely wont help you out to well.

EDIT: make sure your gear isn't clattering... don't have to carry everything and your kitchen sink.

i personally wear a pair of Matterhorn Steel-Toe Waterproof boots, since the area i play in is a swamp. Heavy yes, but i'm used to them anyways, and i can still walk very very quietly. Its ultimately not what you wear, its how you walk. Each step has to be placed carefully and slowly when you are on a stalk. I played on saturday, and every single one of my stalks were successful. and they were all against groups of 2-3 people.

I use a pair of ozark trail hiking boots that i got from my local Wal-Mart for $35. comfortable, nice soles and just perfect for running and crawling. the black color is a little noticable compared to my ghillie so im paranoid about them giving me away though. the second they do, i'll just spray paint 'em.
