i like under armor baseball cleats, mid tops. they feel like a running shoe on the inside, have good support, nice durable "spikes" that don't wear out, and are fairly cheap, like 50$. i also use Mizuno baseball cleats, but the quality was a lot lower than that of the under armors

soccer cleats like umbro and puma are good options if you want a really light piece of footwear, however i find that cheaper soccer shoes don't hold up very well. if you were to compare 50$ umbro soccer cleats with 50$ under armor baseball cleats the baseball cleats will last you longer. also not that soccer cleats don't have very good ankle support.
if you want to really dig in to everything try some football cleats, they have toe spikes so you can push off and have a lot more control when accelerating into a sprint. but for just an overall good cleat i would reccomend under armor baseball

Baseball cleats or low/mid top football cleats are my recomendations. Go to a sporting goods store and try a few on.

+1

many fields have banned them and wont allow people wearing them.

Look into some Nike Land sharks. They go any where from $25-$45 ish is nothing to pay to keep yourself upright in those slippery rec. Fields.

I really like soccer cleats, something about them being smaller and lighter helps my mentality on the field better than say football cleats or snow/mud boots.
I only play paintball so I can tell dirty jokes.

Nike Land sharks or some nice adidas. Soccer cleats I found to be the best ones for paintball.

Soccer cleats are developed with the thought of stopping and sprinting just like paintball, go with cheaper wilsons or such, there no reason to shell out more than $50 to play paintball with, the only reason cleats will cost more than that is for longer distance cleat configuration, material to grip the ball better, or to protect your foot incase someone steps on it. THATS IT. I would know shelled out $180 for some f50 cleats for football, and use wilsons for paintball

Nike Mercurial vapors are great, however I'd suggest Nike T90s if you want more support.

I can be a bit of a smartass and even an a-hole. Please bear with me.

Just go to dicks sporting goods or s Nike outlet and go to the clearance section. There will be a variety of 80$ cleats for around 40$. I also found that under armour cleats are a lot less durable then nikes.

My primary sport is soccer (as if you couldn't already tell by my username). So I own and use a lot of different soccer cleats.

If you are in between a few pair I could break down the pros and cons for you.

Soccer cleats are developed with the thought of stopping and sprinting just like paintball, go with cheaper wilsons or such, there no reason to shell out more than $50 to play paintball with, the only reason cleats will cost more than that is for longer distance cleat configuration, material to grip the ball better, or to protect your foot incase someone steps on it. THATS IT. I would know shelled out $180 for some f50 cleats for football, and use wilsons for paintball


What ever you do, do not use F50 Adizeros for paintball. They are some of the lightest soccer cleats on the market (I believe only two pair are lighter, Pele Trinitys and Nike GS) however they are extremely fragile and will not hold up to a full season of paintball.

I recommend some Vibram Five Fingers. They are lighter than anything else out there, and it is weird to actually feel that they are as light as they are.

If you are talking the Classic or the Moc, then yes. But the Trek is what I wear, with a sole that rivals the tread on their boot soles that they sell to other companies, and the Spyridon has an almost off road tire tread pattern to it, which may be better than typical cleats in that it covers the entire sole, not just parts of it.

I like the Exalt cleats that they sell. They work well on grass and turf and if the spikes fall out on the bottom or need to be replaced you can always get new ones. They last a long time as well. They are light weight and easy to clean, so I would check them out. I got mine from Tri-City Extreme (www.tri-cityextreme.com) and they were fast shipping and everything. Check their site out for prices and what not.
