Default Shoes or Cleats

Just wondering what kind of shoes do you wear. I just bought some Dr. Scholls shoes and they already are tearing up on the soles. I just have to re-glue the sole but curious what you guy/gals wear.

Also I was watching a video with Avery Jenkins, in Japan and he said,that he wears cleats. Just wonder what you thought about it.

I wouldn't wear cleats, it'll be harder for you to rotate on your foot.

That is what I was thinking. Maybe Avery was just using them in Japan. They may not have real tee pads.

If it's slick and the tees are natural, I can see the benefit of using cleats. Otherwise it probably does more harm than good by prohibiting you from getting a good pivot. Sounds like a good way to blow your knee out if you do it enough.

I just need to find a nice pair of shoes where the soles will not come unglue when I am playing. Very annoying when you try and do your x step and sole catches the tee box...

I hate it when people use cleats on natural tees. It digs massive holes and ruts near the toe line, to just be filled in by sloppy, muddy nastiness.

That's a big problem for a lot of shoes. The most durable soles I've played on so far have been the Vibram soles on the various Merrell and some North Face shoes. The Keen Targhees I've had were also nearly indestructible.

If you play on tons of hills or in woods where there's tons of leaf litter, I could see using cleats.

lots of people around my area use cleats when we have tourneys on natural teepads. as far as shoes that dont beat up real quick, keens are a good option. but if you dont have that kind money, i find some brands of skate shoes hold up really well. ive stakeboarded for 13 years now and can go through a pair of shoes in two weeks in the summer. i feel your pain lol.
