Barefoot paintballing. does any one do this?

does anyone play paintball bare foot? now this is just for speedball due to sticks and other various small things with woodsball. but ive looked into a company that makes shoes like feet. are these woth it? or do i just go barefoot?

to try something different. you also get better balance with the five finger shoes, being their basically the same thing as bare foot.

Try it. I've only seen one person ever wearing those things, in San Francisco (where'd you'd except that sort of thing) and on sale in shops in Santa Cruz & someplace in Oregon. Give it a shot, the KSO one is probably the best choice. Not sure if they'll have the same traction as cleats, which is where the concern would be.

Get a set of cleats and a set of turf shoes and you're set for any field.

Those foot shots look like they're going to hurt with those things on but whatever floats your boat man.

Haha, although they do look funny... I've read/listened to some pretty interesting stuff about those shoes. Try them and post back about traction, comfort, etc. I'd be pretty interested in finding out.
