Was just going through shoes online at dicks sporting goods and stumbled upon this pair of Adidas golf cleats...
...are you guys thinking what I'm thinking? At first sight I was thinking... wow wtf they are getting wacky with shoes these days, then it dawned on me... those are frigging perfect! Not only are those a flexible cleat, those are waterproof. No more paint goo soaking into the shoe.
I wonder how these hold up durability wise... I just may have to order a pair and compare them to my HK Army cleats. I like my HK cleats for being lightweight, flexible, and breathable, but my complaint is that they are lacking durability on the soles... the bottoms of the HK's are super soft and get torn up around where I live we play in the sagebrush and tumbleweed lol. So it seems that my HK cleats aren't really made for rugged ground, but they would be perfect for soft turf and indoor AstroTurf fields.
Anyhow what think?

You kinda get what you pay for when if comes to shoes... up to a point, but HK Army has them beat in terms of affordability.
HK Army cleats are $70. Adidas crossflex golf shoe are $100.

yeah i get that, but my $20 baseball cleats havent failed me yet

Well the bottoms of those cleats aren't a whole lot different from these...
... those aren't exactly long protruding spikes you see on the bottom. And those have been designed specifically for paintball.
I'd say the Adidas are every bit as much of a "cleat" as the HKs.

True, but at some fields they do not allow spiked cleats. Our city ran a rec ball league for a few years but did not allow players to use "spiked" cleats for two reasons... potential to put holes in bunkers (not sure how anyone could manage doing so, but I didn't make the rules), and potential to injure other players.

Yeah that's always a good go to choice for scenario... you want something a bit more duty-proof.

Completely agree with this. Golf cleats are designed to keep your stance stable while standig in place and turning to make a swing versus traction while running.
