Durable paint for stairs

I need to repaint the basement stairs (wood plank). What would be recommended as far as brand, type, etc.? It's a fairly high traffic area, and I also washed frequently.

I like the Muralo Sure Tred. But, as with anything, proper prep is very important for areas where people walk and you should be realistic and expect some maintenance.

RE: Durable paint for stairs

Steps were previously carpeted, so I scraped up all the glue, picked out the staples, sanded and primed last summer. I used an enamel paint and need to repaint them a different color. I am okay with occasional touch ups and repainting every year or two. (Should I raise or lower my expectations?)

I will take a look at the Sure Tred, but I was hoping for something tintable, as I need to match a color (as close as I can). I looked at their site and the Quik Tred is tintable, not sure about the Ultra or Super Treds, but I didn't see the Sure Tred. Is it similar to any of those?

RE: Durable paint for stairs

Maybe it's called Quik Tred and I just screwed up the name. It is reasonable to expect at least a touch up every 2 years.
