    Are normal runners or specific indoor shoes (badminton, etc) better for an indoor keeper? There's a pair of badminton shoes online I could get, but I don't want to rush and get them if they're not the best shoes I could get.

    Dunlop Volleys. Go to Big W/Target/whatever, spend $20.

    sanabas Volleys? Seriously? I'm not judging, but they're good for keepers? I'm intrigued...

    They're good for indoor courts. And volleys are just awesome in general. You might have issues with the toe strap riding up as there's not much tread, but that's going to be a problem with any shoe designed for basketball/volleyball/badminton/other indoor courts. Little bit of gaffa tape run between the two straps can help with that.

    So a $20 pair of volley would be just as good as a $60 pair of indoor court shoes? I like the sound of that! :D

    They are to me. But again, personal preference thing. Volleys will have less cushioning than the other options, probably.

    Or just get a cheap pair of indoor football shoes. No good for outfield players because of the lack of toe protection but fine for keepers

    I found a cheap pair of badminton shoes, but I'll get some Volleys and try them out. If they don't work, then no harm done, and I can just get a cheap pair of indoor shoes! :p
