I went to my local blue/grey big box store and bought a pair of budget $50? waterproof trail runners. I knew I was gonna destroy then, so as long as they lasted a season, they'd be worth it. That was at the beginning of last season. So far so good.

I use the Salomon Speedcross 4 shoes.

But if you are looking for good boots that are comfortable and rugged, and will last, that I personally use daily and in the field: Belleville C320s. I swear by them.

After sliding funny and breaking my ankle back in January, once I'm able to play again I will try and get some boots. Only issue with that is the field we play at is mud most of the time, with hills and rocks. The cleats I was using had ankle support.

Definitely try the Belleville C320 or Rocky S2V. You may like them. Great for the field, regardless of weather conditions. I have worn both through terrible terrain, swamp, hill and rocky terrain and they hold up well. C320s are my favorites because they are lighter, but slightly less ankle support compared to the Rockies.

If it's bad enough ya, I don't wear the trail runners.

But I'm also in the Pacific Northwest, it's one of the wettest regions in the country and I've played with the trail runners for about 2 years now without needing to change to something else. They are designed with some moisture in mind

Also, I have no problem admitting I'm a bit of a fair weather player, if it's just terrible out I just wait for the next weekend to play

I wear some combat/jungle boots for scenario play, because at the end of the scenario the rest of my body is screaming "why did you do that to me" so why should my feet be any different.

The new Merrell 8" MOAB boots I recently bought are super comfortable and give good ankle support without being too stiff.





When it's warm and dry I wear Fila Trail runners. (Memory Uncharted 2)

Lightweight and with a very aggressive tread.

Dicks has these for $99.99 and I know I am always getting coupons in the mail. I tried them on and were pretty comfy, I just wasn't fond of the narrow/rounded heel where it contacts the ground. Tread was fairly aggressive.

I ended up buying a merrell that was a bit more minimal in design and lighter but a little more expensive. I can't seem to find them online right now to show.

Edit: Found them, they have been replaced by a newer model. These can be found on clearance so ignore the $300 price tag lol, I paid $100. Good reviews.

For flat ground I recommend either a cleat or trail shoe and would go with breath-ability over water sealing unless you're in a wet climate. Guess thats the biggest advice, buy for your climate.
For woods I'd recommend a taller shoe or boot, again I'd avoid water proofing unless you really need it or want it.
As far as brands I've been leaning toward Merrells these days because they're more comfortable and offer different supports. If you want tacti-cool SWAT boots are pretty good but Dick's/Field and Stream will have a good selection.
