I tried playing in steel toe, but it hurt my toes when changing direction. Cheap pair of football cleates fro Acadamy(Speedball), and my Timberland hiking boots(woodsball). Very comfotable.

I wear my everyday black Catapillars. A little worn but they're comfortable and give me good traction and plenty ankle support. Am shopping for a new pair, though, tho, good ideas in this thread.

I wore a pair of tennisshoes my last scenario because I went and forgot my boots (doe). That was the worst part of the experience. Not so much the traction but the fact that the soles are so flimsy every time I stepped on something I felt like I was barefoot...not the feeling I'm after when I'm in the woods. And no ankle support to speak of, I did manage to sprang my ankle the first hour or two into the scenario. Wasn't bad, at least, felt fine half an hour later or so...

Nice pair of black leather Columbia shoes. Good grip, and they're light and comfortable. I don't need so much ankle support where I play though, except when they have a big game and take out the boundaries between their fields, so it's one big field. Then the creeks separating the areas naturally become playable, and there are way more angles of attack, and more diverse terrain.

But I'll be buying actual boots some time, most likely this summer, because I'll be playing at other fields, and I'll want the extra support and grip that they'll offer. I wish I could afford Magnums, but my local Surplus store doesn't have them (as far as I know), so I'll have to get either combat boots from the Surplus, or hiking boots.

Well as a sabre i have my gear kit pretty much in order, I have on occasion worn the standard Combat boots, from the Old Altamas, to my Carolina boots.. Both served my purposes and did work for me very well for over 14 years ( I was issued them in boot camp). But recently I discovered that I was still prone to my ankle rolling while wearing the boots. It did not matter I would roll my left ankle nearly every time I went out.

So one day when I had a "blow out" in my Carolinas I had to change shoes and didn't have anything but my pair of running shoes. Needless to say they served me perfectly and not once did I roll my ankle. Wearing them gave me more mobility and agility. I felt much lighter on my feet with them. Wearing standard running shoes though, I began to notice a problem... slipping, not getting enough traction in, mud, wet grass, running/stepping on/over logs ect... Initially most players that choose to wear shoes in Woodsball typically use football cleats. I was going to do that.. but then I discovered a company that makes a shoe SPECIFICLY for running in the type of terrain we find in paintball.

And I now use the Inov8 MudRoc 280 as my shoe. Its lightweight, which keeps me light on my feet, rugged and specificly designed for heavy abuse, and the traction is designed for the worst terrain you can encounter on a woodsball field!

Besides sounding just like a commercial you actually make sense, and I might just have to look into those.

So you say these Inov8 MudRoc 280 are all they're cracked up to be?

I swear by JT Tournament Hi-Top paintball cleats. They are comfortable, durable, tactical, and good-looking -- and ON SALE for $45 at Action Village and elsewhere. The sneaker-like fit is excellent, the hiking boot-like grip (even in Pacific Northwest mud and muck) is outstanding, and the combat boot-like support is fantastic. Plus they help you move Dagger-fast...even if you're only a Sabre... :P

PS: If you're really cheap get some Nevados Ambush low-tops for under $20 at your local Kroeger/Fred Meyer store or Big 5 Sporting Goods and toss in some aftermarket sport insoles -- excellent inexpensive trailrunners you won't be afraid to trash playing paintball...

Sigs aren't actually allowed on the Special Ops Forum, so I don't have one.

I use regular old Combat boots from the local army navy store. They are water proof and give good snkle support and traction.


A side note about paintball cleats. I was playing an outlaw game one day with a bunch of friends. It was a hot and humid day as it had rained for two days before that Saturday. Well the field was based around a small pond that is feed by a gully(sp) Well we get started and about 30 minutes into the game I am eliminated. As I am walking back to the stagin area I hear someone yelling for help. I run to the edge of the gully and see half of a guy sticking out of the ground.


One of my friends had jsut bought a new pair of paintball cleats for 80.00(US) and thought he would be slick and go through the gully to suprise the other team. Well the gullu looked dry so he jumped in. The ground had just crusted over and it was nothing but a large pit of mud. It tock 10 people and a portable wench to get him out of the mud but those brand new cleats are still there to this day.

If you play your own game of paintball using Spec ops as guidelines and not as "law of position", put this in your sig.
