Most people think they look funny, but the toe box on them is shaped more like the shape of your foot and not crazily tapered to a point where it smushes your toes together. They look kinda like Crocs and have held up surprisingly well to concrete teepads. I've had mine for a few seasons now without any crazy wear on them. I'm not sure how their boots would hold up on the course, but I've been thinking about getting a pair of Lems boots (another wide toe, minimalist company) for winter rounds.
I've been wearing a pair of vivobarefoots fancier shoes for casual wear for the past year and love them; so you mentioning this made me look into them last month when it became clear I needed a new pair of DG/running shoes. I went with:
https://www.amazon.com/Vivobarefoot-...dp/B00N43EOF2/

Definitely wide enough, pretty darn sturdy feeling. I've only wore them disc golfing once so far but I like em and think they will hold up well.

That's awesome! Let me know the motus works out for you. I'm very interested in how well they hold up. They're marketed for parkour and other similar activities, so hopefully they would take the twisting motion well.

I was hoping to find a pair of boots that work well, but I'm not a fan of the Vivo boots. I found some incredible boots from a different company, but the soles are rather soft. I doubt they would hold up very well

As to running wide, I am not sure I agree. I have wide feet and their wides are not terribly wide. I can't speak to how Keen mediums compare to other brand's mediums, but only from the perspective of someone who cannot wear Keen unless they are actually wide. They are not uncomfortable to me, but they certainly don't feel any more wide than the same from other shoe companies. Granted, they are only 2E. They are basically as wide as I expect in something that is not a 3E or 4E.

I have Brian Atwood shoes, and it can be good for wide feet as well.

I am no expert on the shoe and lets just say they were wide for me, they look wider?

Wide feet get the wide in a New Balance Trail shoe made for a serious trail runner, they also make some barefoot options too. Just get a more sturdy trail shoe then a Cheep one unless you find the same model online but an older one. My Brother wore a New Balance back in the 2000's as they were the only ones that fit his Flintstones like feet. Most of the NB shoes go up to a EEE if needed or a really skinny shoe too. Though my dad and I use Brooks Cascadia models for Running Shoes well my dad as most of his trail running shoes, me for everything except Road Racing Have some Asics Flats as they have stability too and old Nike Cross Country shoes for track stuff if I ever do that. I need to start running again this year.

ditto on Merrell's, I have 2 pairs (low and high tops) and have lasted a good 2-3 seasons already

I did receive a free pair of Keens from Worlds last year and happened to find a wide size shoe but haven't had a chance to see if they will work or not

I have very wide feet. My in-laws gave me these for Annual Gift Giving Day. I thought I would not be a fan but I've never felt more stable walking down the hills at my course. Super big toe box.

They're very light so I wonder how long they will last.

I like altra's, for running. I'm not sure I dig the zero drop for disc golf. I agree, I feel stable, but the lack of drop seems to mess up my balance on the tee.

They are super comfy.
