I used Keen and Solomon for most of my time playing, just recently bought my first pair of Merrells and I really enjoy them. "Bare Access" is the name and they're more of a trail running shoe. No ankle support supposedly emulating a barefoot run/5fingers-esque whatever. I don't know I'm not a runner. Don't care

I have had merrels, keen and every other big 5 special. You really notice the difference with a good pair of all terrain shoes vs. skate or tennis shoes! I can't stress this enough. Each time I keep going a little more expensive and have always bennifited from it. (Except with the keen marshals, was not impressed)

I got these last time I was at Columbia. They are ultra light and very durable. The waterproofing is fantastic, but the grip of the sole is slippery when wet on occasion? They're really good and I could t pass them up for the price I got them for. I've put allot of miles on them the last year and are still going strong.

I would rate my shoe experience; Merrill's>Columbia>Keen>skate/tennis shoe

I love my keen marshals. Good waterproofing and very comfortable.

Asic kahana trail shoes. Asics is the only major brand that fits my wide feet. Even NB is too narrow.

Big fan of the Merrells all access. I've had mine over a year:

The treds a little worn and the mesh is torn in spots, but still great to play in! They dry quickly, and you can just toss them in the washer so you don't really need socks. Great grip, as long as it's not muddy out.

But they are minimal! You'll feel every rock, and if you really pound the tee pad with your feet you can hurt yourself. But if you have tough feet already, and are used to minimal shoes they are perfect!

Very comfortable shoe, but their longevity just wasn't there for me. Ripped through these in about 4 months. Glad I only paid $35 for these on steep and cheap. I really wish these would have lasted longer...because they were uber comfie on the course.

As a runner, the Merrell barefoot models are fun shoes for short runs(< 5 mi), but I really dig these for discing. So lightweight and fairly durable for how lightweight they are. The New Balance Minimus are pretty decent too.

Picked up a pair of the Keen Saltzman WP Mid's to replace my 4 year old Salomon's that I got off Steep and Cheap. First day wearing them around and they are a fair bit more stiff than the previous pair was when new. But for $60 shipped, I will get these bad boys broken over the next couple weeks...just in time for the spring season. Anybody else like the Saltzman?

Yes, I have a pair of the Keen Saltzman shoes and really like them, but $60 shipped, that's a steal!
