That would be a cool idea, since varying terrains affect your speed, like mud and gravel.

This is a very nice idea. I like it a lot :) It'll mean you need to choose your terrain a lot more carefully as somebody could pick you off with your slow movement.

Mabye on concrete / pavements you walk fast Grass you walk normal dirt you walk a little slower Sand you walk slow Shallow water you walk very slow (shallow water being you're not swimming yet)

don't forget snow when we get there, snow and cold weather really slow you down.

You'd be amazed how hard it is to walk on concrete/pavement with hobnailed boots, which all countries used. Think trying to walk normally on a frozen lake using ice skates. Me and other reenactors have fallen on our ass many times, and I've even seen combat vids of German soldiers slipping and tripping on flat concreteXD Even a vid of a bunker defense exercise where, to turn a corner to some stairs, they grab a handlebar and slide around the corner.

Did Brits use some sort of hobnail too? I assume the hobnails were used to make soles last longer. But for the reason you mention about sliding, etc., they always seemed to me to be useless except on plain dirt. Then again, I guess that's where footsoldiers spend the vast majority of their time.

The best boots ... (my opinion) was the german boots... especially the SS boots

Yep, brits had hobnails too, I know of no country in WW2 that didn't have hobnails on their standard issue boots. And yes, it was to improve traction over dirt, and to lengthen the life of the sole.
