What type of shoes would you guys wear in the dirt, This summer going back home to Morocco, so alot of people play in these type of terrain, but no clue what shoe is good for this. ( Hopefully the shoe will last for a bit )

To be honest I never wore one in that condition, because where I grew up, we played on dirt barefooted. According to the picture it's regulation to have a footware during game play, I'm guessing what cesar posted, I not sure, it would suit that fround perhaps.

Turf shoes like the ones cesar posted are pretty good. I have played on fields like those with those types of shoes and they are good because you don't slip as much. I guess any types of shoes would work though.

We actually play all our games on dirt. I think they recommend that you should wear turf shoes but nobody actually does. I just use puma v1.06.s though they wear out pretty fast.

Something with Short studs would work pretty well considering the ground is hard. Puma Kings, Copa Mundials, Umbro Vengeance are all good shoes with these type of studs.

Just a question.. does dirt make the ball bounce much different than grass? I've never played on a field like that.

I have played on dirt before and its quite different than regular cement or grass for that matter. As Cesar posted, Turf [TF] shoes are good for this type of playing field. The studs are very small and rubber to prevent slipping. I wouldn't recommend flat soled indoor shoes here as they would get torn up easily. Turf shoes are your best choice, and possible hard grounds [HG] depending on the condition of the field. Its highly unlikely you will be able to use any other type of cleat/shoe.

Here are some I found that you might like:

Puma Vencida II TF:

Thats just a small list of the possible shoes you could wear. I have the Tiempo Guri (Ronaldinho's) and I highly reccomend them.

Cheers and let me know if you need anything else. :D

I agree with all the others who recommended astroturf boots. I've played on similar pitches in Sweden and that is definitely the best option.
