I play in Keens, I think they're last year's Siskyou or whatever the F.

I have had the problem of part of the tread pulling away from the shoe where I pivot, but not bad enought to be a problem. I love 'em. They run a bit wide, which I have snow shovel feet, and they're actually real durable considering how light, cool, and comfortable they are. Totally waterproof, with no degradation there after almost 6 hard months.

...and they're about $20-30 cheaper than the Delas. And they look better. IMO, Keen's mistake was making a DG-specific shoe that's not necessarily any better for DG than their regular line-up, meaning DGers are just as likely to play another Keen model, and non DG-ers aren't likely to pay more for (IMO) funky looking Delas, either, only available in black/red for men, they look like black sneakers, which I simply can't abide.

Also, now that I'm thinking about it, the type of shoe in general that a player prefers varies widely, so a "hiker" type dedicated DG shoe won't necessarily storm the market. Some players like skate shoes, some running shoes, some prefer full boots, etc.

This is probably A) a smart move by Keen that B) doesn't/won't mean that there's a problem between Keen and DG.

They were better than regular Keens. The one piece molded toe that extends over the top is a perfect example as to how they were different that regular Keens.

Its a shame that they are discontinuing them but all I have ever heard about the Keen disc golf shoes has been bad. I was hoping that when the DeLa's came out that they would be better than the Milo's, but I held off on buying them, and glad I did now. I have used a pair of Columbia's the past two years and they are just starting to age enough to buy a new pair. The previous two years before that I had a pair of North Face shoes. Loved both pairs and they were both cheaper than any Keen's that I have seen.

I had a pair of Columbia's before my Milo II's and like Shag, they lasted me better than a year and a half. Same playing schedule and the Milo II's lasted me 6 months before the soles started separating. I emailed Keen but I am not expecting much..........

Is Keen going to make another DG shoe to replace the Dela. Similar to the Dela replacing the Milo.

Umm, doesn't every pair of keens have the toe coverage, even the sandals?
