I have been playing for 4 years now, (Including 2 Claybank Mason Relic Games) and every game has been in steel toe, or compisite 8" work boots. Never had a blister or sore feet.
The key is to have GOOD boots that are comfortable and dont rub. If you have good boots that fit right you will have no problems and some highend work boots weigh less than hikers. (Redwings are really light)
Dont go to Wal-Mart or Peavey Mart and buy a $40 pair of work boots and head to your game cause you will broably go home in your socks.
