whats the point when you could have better ones for a cheaper price but made for a different sport like soccer, football etc...
Ok your stupid. Yeah lets all wear shoes specifically made FOR OTHER SPORTS what an idiot. Let me guess you've never tried Diggers? oh yeah and they dont cost 75. the extremes which are the more expensive ones cost 50 and the regular ones are like 40 I think so they arnt all that expensive. half my team wears diggers(I dont, yet) and most other teams I know where them, all the Am teams I know where them so that must mean something. Vans is working on a paintball Cleat, I dont know why because they have never made any sort of cleat but we need sport specific footwear just like every other sport. Would you go play football in soccer cleats? no.

Rugby Cleats!

I just started wearing my rugger cleats. They work great because they have metal spikes which certainly beats the rubber ones for other sports.

thats true....but i don't think its cleats in general,just cleats with massive spikes...

Track shoes are nice for frontplayers...super light.

baseball cleats do the trick for me.

Have you tried a pair of Diggers cleats, they are comfortable. Their cleats have a patent on them and Nike tried to purchase the patent. How do I know this? I know the owner(s) of Diggers cleats. Obviously they must be some what good if a big corporate company wants to buy the design. I think those cleats are worth the price. I would definatley buy another pair.

where can you get them from? and plus.. since I play rec ball alot, I wouldn't were them because I would think all the stumps and stuff on the woods field would mess up the spikes.

I agree with gfksandiego, those digger cleats are pretty fugly lookin. You wouldn't catch me dead wearing em. I was just in my first tournament and I wasn't using cleats and it sucked bigtime. I've definitely been looking for a pair since then. I usually play in old Adidas running shoes or es skateshoes. The thing about wearing soccer or football cleats is they're made for either astroturf or grass. I've never played paintball on either of those surfaces. Soccer cleats don't give enough ankle support for me to trust while running around the woods in and I've never tried football or baseball cleats before so I couldn't say which would be better. What do you guys think?

Im waiting for nike to come out with some paintball cleats, and about the patent thing, that doesn't mean no one else can make paintball cleats right(of course im right, that would be a monoply(sp?)right?) I think the diggers are ugly too. I would think baseball cleats would work, maybe ?

You are right jtusa Diggers can put a patent on the design of the cleat but they can't put a patent on paintball cleats, as I stated before Vans is working with Avalanche to make a paintball cleat. I will admit it the Regular Diggers are ugly but the diggers extremes aint bad looking.

I use Nike Sharks with high ankle support they were only $40, are light, and work fine. Never thought of purchasing diggers because I could never find them in my size (15-16 depending on the shoe) and football cleats are easier to come by.

I'M THE ONLY ONE THAT WEARS SLIPPERS!

Seriously, I do! Well, not quite slippers, but I found a pair of sandals that the North Vietnamese Army or Viet Cong or however you want to refer to the peoples army. Like I was saying, I found a pair of sandals that the Viet Cong used to wear in Vietnam, so I just use those.

They make me feel all sneaky and ****...
