Thw thin soled ones suck imo. It hurts to run around fast in them. I have tried 6 different pairs of tabis over the years and most do only last a few weeks of combat. My most recent ones though, the sweet ones with the air soles, have seen months of HEAVY combat and event mud and are babrely showing signs of wear. Tenkaralin.com is the shiz! A bit pricey but very fast shipping. Check mine out next practice spiderling.
