This is my first year playing ball hockey. Most of the guys use basketball shoes, but they still have slipping issues. I don't have a pair of running shoes or basketball shoes, so I just wore my ordinary Merrels which are cross trainers at best. They have a hard Vibram sole, so you'd figure I'd have slipping problems, but last game I forgot those and had to wear my Keens which are sort of sandal shoes and I was slipping like nobodies business. Now with a basis of comparison I can safely say the grip on my Merrells is significantly more than even basketball shoes offer. I'm 240 pounds and when I put my foot down to stop from a sprint there wasn't an inch of slipping.
Here are a pic of the shoes. I have no idea why they offer so much grip on slick concrete.
