Default Best Disc Golf Shoes?

I'm in the market for some new shoes and I was just wondering what people on here use and what seems to work. The only things that I need are and good toe cap and waterproof lining. After that, I'm sure every company makes shoes that have good grip and are comfortable. I know the Milo II's are good, but I've been looking at the Keen Tyron's and they seem like they may work as well. Just wanted a little insight before I made a purchase that I'm going to have to deal with for a while!

Milo II's suck. My first pair saw the soles peeling within a month and my replacement ,that I have had about 6 months, have the whole side of the shoe blown out. I get better wear out of a cheap pair of Nike crosstrainers.

I used to play with running shoes but this year got a pair of Merrel's (not sure what model) with Vibram Soles. These things are great. They give me really good footing through New England's rugged courses. They're also really comfortable to the point that I don't even notice the fact that I've been on my feet all day.

Keen Targhee II Mids and Asolo Flame GTX

I would really recommend the two pairs that I typically wear.

For the warmer months I wear my mids. Keen Targhee II. Great liner and toe cap.

In the colder months I wear Asolo Flame GTX which also have a great liner and toe caps. They offer better ankle support and are more hardcore. Great for extensive hiking trips as well. Very nice and warm boots.

Merills are really good as well. My brother loves his. For me they just dont offer the toe caps and seem to wear out a lot quicker for the amount I use my shoes (I play almost every day)

I would recommend buying from REI if you have you in your area. They offer a 100% satisfaction guarentee and are awesome with returns or exchanges if you are unhappy for ANY reason.

Good luck. make sure you try a crap ton on and walk around for a long while to get a good feel.

Many great choices out there

I'm using a pair of Merrell MOAB Gor-Tex XCR boots. Best investment I've made in disc golf as I play early mornings quite often and hate wet feet!!

They are actually holding up very well even after about 20 rounds already this year.

I use merrell's waterpros, chameleons, riots, sidesteps, and intercepts. I prefer the intercepts so I have the ventilator (breathable), the standard version, the goretex, and the boot style.
I like their lug setting (heel stance), width, side support, and the heel is easy for rotating on.

What you will like will depend on how you rotate and the width of your foot.


My vibram bikilas are great too (as well as my other merrell styles) but the intercept is my all around favorite.

Just a heads up...

I see most opt for waterproof shoes- but remember, they're heavier, less breathable, and break down quicker then their non wp counterparts.

I found the targees to be quite heavy and the xcr, while a great trail running shoe, doesn't have a vibram sole- so if you use your legs in your throw they will wear quickly.

•note• If using your legs properly, no shoe will last very long.
