I have tried Kheens, which we’re comfortable at first, but once broken in not so much. Merrill’s but the sole came apart from the shoe rather quickly. Nike trail runners were the most comfortable and performed awesome for a few rounds, but the sole would start to wear off on the tee pad on round 1! Innov8 makes super comfortable low profile shoes for you five finger guys, they are pricey, and wear out pretty quickly as well. Adidas Terrex are the best I have found because I can’t afford to buy a new pair every three months, and because of this thread I just went to adidas outdoor and scored a pair for $42 shipped. As long as you don’t need goretex you can usually find a good deal. Expect to pay around $80 for goretex. They last forever, my current pair was used for all of last season with minimal wear.

They are super lightweight, almost feel like you are barefoot. Ok, really feel like you are barefoot. You will feel every rock and every twig you step on, and they are not the warmest. That said, I have grown used to minimal footwear and I really love the Prio shoes. Also, all previous issues I have had with my feet are gone, and my knee and back problems have lessened. I do get tired faster though, barefoot-ish walking takes alot of energy.

Curious what previous issues you had with your feet might have been? I've dealt with plantar fasciitis and typically have to be careful with shoes

I had acute Plantar Fasciitis that only flamed up when running or standing in place. As a disclaimer I will say that I now walk from the balls of my feet rather than the heel, which the minimalist shoes help out tremendously. I also run and hike that way as well now, but it is a slow process to build up those muscles.

You might like the Newton Running shoes. they have helped a runner in town who was at one point a near qualifier for the Olympic Marathon trials back in the late 2000's fix his stride from a flat foot landing with extra muscle emphasis on heel to a more mid foot strike though he sill is a tad bouncy though even in minimal running shoes, he had some of the Asics Racing flat that was just a sock liner glued to the rubber sole for a training shoe as he prefered at the time the Hyper Speed or the Nosia Tri Racer when the Hyper Speed changed. Now the Nosia tri Racer is ASICS Gel Hyper-Tri model.

I also noticed with my running since I have used the Brooks Cascadia for most running though I have racing flats for going for my PR and track work that the Brooks Cascadia is making it so I have to run more mid foot then I did before especially on most paved surfaces as the denser compressed midsole for trail is making it so I have to run more mid foot off trail.

I currently use Vibram Five Fingers for running. They have unparalleled grip for trails and boulders. I don't really do any road running anymore unless I am out for a short jog around the neighborhood. I plan on transitioning to the Xeroshoes running sandals after my current pair of Five Fingers wear out.

I currently have the Keen Saltzman but they are pretty snug on my wide ass feet and start to get pretty uncomfortable after a couple rounds. Anybody have any suggestions for a good disc golf shoe that won't pinch my wide ass feet? Preferably waterproof but not a dealbreaker as long as the fit is comfortable.

I have narrowed down my shoe mold. Adidas Tracerockers are perfect for me. Light weight/durable/cheap/stylish/comfortable.

Fyi, the traxion sole on the cheaper adidas outdoor shoes is extremely durable and grippy. I have a cheap hiking pair that i have put roughly a couple hundred of miles on with next to no slippage and still have plenty of tread.

That Continental sole may be overrated.
