For scenario, I never found anything that beat my $30 walmart hiking shoes. (Obviously there are better ones out there, but I don't want to trash a pair of $100 shoes with paint. And they were actually really comfortable)


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

I think the idea in a flexible platform shoe is that the pods on the bottom flex and adapt to the ground. Dick's describes them as follows...

I don't think those look like good cleats either. Just a bit of grass/dirt/mud and you're pretty much clogging up those cleats too; they look about as good as regular cross-trainers to me. I've just never had any good experiences with anything less than "true" cleats.


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.

I'm doubting the gripping ability of those "cleats" on the bottom.


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.

depends on how much they are haha


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.
