i always cary 3 pair to events... 1 pair of track shoes with golf spikes for dry dirt, hard clay, turf, or low cut grass. 1 pair of molded mike baseball cleats low top for muddy conditions, and 1 pair of diadaria soccer cleats for high grass.
have a selection with you and youll be fine. i also suggest every one who wears low tops wear cheap ankle braces as support. this makes a huge difference after years and years of playing once or twice a week.
I went to Sports Authority last night and bought some Nike Tiempo II socc..errr football cleats for 37 bucks and they are light/comfy as hell. I had a pair of the indoor football ones and they lasted a long time and took a LOT of abuse so these should last a while as well.
Puma 5000m's or Puma Speeders. The 5000's are hard to find now, so I got myself a pair of the speeders which are extremely similar to the 5000's at an outlet store for half off which ended up being 30 bucks, and they're phenomenal.

If you are looking for a soccer style cleat with ankle support check our rugby boots. I work for a soccer, lacrosse and rugby online shoe store and I have found that rugby and lacrosse cleats are best for people looking for ankle support. Hard ground soccer cleats are best for front players.
