i would rate the 40s ability to grip at about 6/10

i slipped out a few times on concrete pads with some sand/dirt on them

once again i think the tsla make better walking/hiking shoes than dg shoes but the price point is fair

40s are way better all around than 32s

So for work this past off season I wore my Merrel Moab Ventilators. Got some work insoles in there, I walked alot at that gig, and afterwards, I thought they'd be toast, high impact, food production type stuff. Pulled them out for a round and they still are going strong. I've had them for at least 3 years now. I bought them used, so at 10 bucks I'd say they have been the best value yet. Which seems to go without saying, as I've actually owned several pairs and gotten the same mileage out of them. Love them.

I really like the Merrell Move Glove shoes. They aren't for everyone though. They are the "minimalist" type of shoe and you can feel the rocks and sticks through the sole. I think they might be out of stock right now and I don't know if that is due to COVID-19 shutting things down or if they didn't sell well enough.

Might have been the shoe. I've had mine for a while now with no noticeable wear. My 'home' course is rocky, with mostly concrete tee pads. Bunch of cacti and very little grass. The Merrell Move Glove has been holding up very well, better than any "tennis" shoe I've worn.

The Move Glove sole is Vibram and has ridges, the sole continues up over the toe and up from the heel...so it covers the wear spots pretty well.

Leave a review on the Amazon page for the model. most are for people either complaining about the beefier model being way too stiff in the mid-sole or people liking the older version of the minimal models with only big complaints being the shoe toe box being a tad narrow having to go up a size.
