Thanks for all the shoe reccomendations and moving tips. I think I am going to pick up a type of shoe that will add to the effect. Going to try out all these things this Saturday

Vibram Five Fingers will work great. It's less about the shoe, and more about how you walk. Walk on the balls of your feet, and avoid sticks and leaves. With a thinner sole, which the Vibrams will give you, you will be able to feel what you are stepping on, so you will know when to put your weight down, and when not to.

As to people that talk about rolling their ankles, I haven't heard of Native Americans, who ran around barefoot, or with a minimalist pair of moccasins, having that problem regularly...

I read somewhere modern running shoes only came about in what, the late 60s?

I like the idea of Fivefingers because you build up all the foot and ankle muscles, tendons, etc. that you can't use in "supportive" shoes. When you've strengthened those muscles, you might avoid some of the ankle injuries inflexible shoe soles would cause when you land on "odd" surfaces/odd angles.

I'd agree with most that footwear helps very little.

In addition to the tips above, I offer this:

For woodsball, moving when the wind blows helps ALOT. A strong enough breeze rustles enough leaves to cover more noise than you think, especially heard through a paintball mask.

I also tend to move while people are firing...they can't hear much over the racket they are making inches from their own ears...

I bought a pair of vibrams and after runninh three miles in them i had calf soreness for about a week. I have no doubt that they help you use other muscles you dont normally use in regular shoes.

You are only supposed to wear them for about two or so hours a day, for about two to four days, before doing something like that. But even if you do break yourself in with them, you will still get sore muscles in your legs that you never knew that you had there.

i did wear them around the house and while exercising downstairs but when the cross country wife wanted to go for a jog, i jumped at the chance. thought they would hurt my feet running on concrete but didn't really notice that. even small rocks were a breeze. definately need socks with them.
