Shoes for ball hockey inside

What surface are you playing on and how clean is it? Generally, any type of basketball shoe should work in terms of grip but if it's outdoors and dusty you're mostly out of luck.

I wear some training/running shoes and that works great. In the past I've used indoor soccer shoes which offer some decent grip as well, but they tend to be thinner (to be lighter) so it's not as protective.

Yes. indoor basketball shoes are pretty much made for traction onsmooth services. It gives you good ankle support too.

Any basketball shoe with this type of pattern on the bottom: http://s3.amazonaws.com/preview.cans...ock0069447.png

I know some guys on my team put duct tape on the bottom of their shoes after every game.

Then before the next game they pull off the tape. The glue that remains on the shoe gives them some good grip on the concrete floor we play on.

Some guys on my team pour a little bit of coke on the floor and then walk through it.

Then kick the floor a few times until it "squeeks" and you are good to go.

any type of court shoe will be fine. i used to have Asics Gel Rocket 5 which were purchased at Sportchek. i did a quick online search and voila:
