I've had numerous pairs of Salomons, Keens, & Merrels. I didn't like the Vibram sole on the Merrels, they were just too stiff and uncomfortable (to my feet).

After Merrel, I switched to the Salomon XA Pro 3D CS WP Trail-Running Shoes. I had a few pairs of the green ones and another pair or two of the black ones. They were amazing shoes! Comfortable, great grip, waterproof, and I did NOT think they wore down very fast.

The reason I switched to Keens was that they used to be ~$120, but would regularly go on sale for $99. Now they're $145-$160! I switched to the Keen Targhee II, but ripped one of the nubs off of the outside of the right shoe during my first round. They were replaced under warranty, but now I use them as my everyday tennis shoes, not for DG. I torque pretty hard on the front of my plant foot when I throw, so I would probably continue to destroy these shoes, but they are super comfortable...

I now use the Oboz Sawtooth, which have been pretty comfortable. They're not waterproof, but they were on sale for $82, a hell of a lot better than $145 for Salomons...

Anyway, long story short, I loved Salomons, but won't pay that much for shoes. The Oboz have been the most durable thing I've found (for my game) since the Salomons...

I went ahead and bought the the Savannah Hiking shoe for $35. I did not need the waterproof model, and with summer over, I did not need the more vented one(Wings Flyte) either. This one was cheapest, and will make a good test.

As an owner of many different styles of DG shoes I will say the Salomon's with the multi-colored soles (Contagrip?) have awesome traction. Where as the ones with the single color, molded bottoms were very disappointing in regards to traction. Can only really use the lesser Salomons on dry days as they do slip when wet. Also feel like they run a tiny bit short as I usually go 1/2 size larger and these were still a bit snug.

I have used Addidas, Merrel, Keen, Nike, Vans, Teva, Brooks, Asolo, Lowa, Salomon, Asics and probably a couple others. Several types of models/styles in Merrel, Keen and Nike. As far as being comfy: Nike Air with Salomon x_ultra a close second. Grip on the tee: Salomon then Addidas terex. Addidas sole doesn't last as long as Salomon.
