Anyone used flat soled shoes like indoor soccer shoes? I'm mainly concerned with the teepad and traction.

update on my new Keen coven & the $20 Hi Tech that was on sale a while back from S.T.P.

Played in the rain last weekend in Tampa. The Hi-Tech had great grip on the wet pads, better than the Keen. The Keen was more waterproof and kept my feet dry. I am not one who likes a ton of grip on dry pads so the Keen is the way I will go most days but for wetter days I would go with the Hi-Tech for the extra grip.

Only about a month old each so far so I will also update wear life after a while.

I played a muddy Coachman Park in Clearwater with my new $20 Hi-tech's and I never slipped. I went to purchase a backup pair and they were sold out. Hopefully they hold up, time will tell.

PSA, our Burlington has Teva Kimtah waterproof for under $40. Looking like a great value, especially with cooler and possibly wetter conditions ahead. I got a pair and will review after a few rounds.

Update on these shoes. While extremely light and very comfortable I noticed yesterday that my right big toe is already starting come through the mesh upper. Very disappointed. This is just over 1 month of having them and playing 1 tournament and maybe 10 rounds.

New Balance has what sounds like a 1 time warranty claim system. If they do accept them as a warranty problem, and give me a voucher for another pair, if the replacements fail I'm stuck with them. Needless to say that if that happens then it will be my last pair of New Balance shoes and I'll go back to Merrell, Keen, or even Cabelas (which has a 1 year replacement guarantee on all their brand shoes). One guy I know has gone through 3 pairs of Cabelas' shoes 2 of which were replacements for free.

Well that's a shame to hear about the MO99's.

I had high hopes for them.
