Just checked these out online, and sure enough Avery left a review saying they are his favorite. Small world.

Default Low cost option

Got these with cashback points at big K. $24.99 minus cashback equaled $15 plus got $13 cashback bonus on my next purchase. I really like them and was tired of going through $100+ shoes.

In store at your local kmart. If I scred them in a few months, no biggy just pickup a new pair. My shoes are normally full of mud and stink anyway after a month or two. Bought salmon for $130 and they didn’t last longer. Save some cash for after round burgers and beers.

Ones I got:

I find that spikeless “ball golf” shoes work great. I currently wear a pair of New Balance...$40
The spikeless shoes are a lot less expensive, lighter weight and most are very waterproof. Also,
The toes are reinforced on most shoes. Most brands go on and off sale pricing very often.
They have good traction and feel.

I thought about buying some Adidas Golf shoes that used a bunch of nubs on the bottom but the shoes were so undercushioned that they did not seem like they would work for disc golf, for me. Upper was based off of a water shoe with single layer mesh upper that Adidas also makes and the tongue was built into the shoe that had a bungee lace system; that meant the shoe had to fit the foot or movement was going to happen.

I did think about getting some New Balance Baseball shoes made to play on turf for disc golf as the motions in throwing in Baseball are really similar to disc golf and the shoe would be built to withstand that kind of movement.

The Newest model of Brooks Cascadia 13 seems like they would work better for disc golf then the 10-11 and even the 12 model. The shoe has a lower guard for sticks and other things into the low part where mesh met the cushioning where the shoe would rip anyhow in the 10 and 11 models with runners due to the twisting motions. The Brooks Cascadia 13 is $130 now no longer $120-$125 but that is fine with me, however I got some 11 extra model when they were on sale for Running and used Gorilla Glue to cover the mesh on spots as I use those shoes for Running.

I still find my model of FILA Non Slip Work shoes seem to work best for disc golf as they have a full no mesh upper for hiking in the woods without a path while the sports shape of the shoe can handle twisting motion of disc golf. I do not like how long it takes for the Type of FILA Non Slip Work shoes to break in, major flaw as well as not knowing how long the shoe will last for me. I have tried my retired trail running shoes, well all running except a road race for disc golf and the plastic stone guard in the cushioning feels off on concrete tee pads when I use a shoe that I was done running in.

these work perfectly for me and i get about 4 yrs ( over 115 rounds a year).

the thing that really makes the difference is these insoles.

i walked and mostly stood on bare concrete for 30 yrs as a machinist. i have had several serious problems with my back, hip and feet mostly on my right side. i go to a safety shoe store and get fitted for my new shoes. i then replace the insoles with the powersteps. these work so well i have a pair for everyday wear as well. i only wish i had had these 30 yrs ago. good luck.

I was thinking of getting a pair of Chameleon 7s. Has anyone tried these?

I just got the Cham 7 stretches. I only have 4 rounds in them, but I'm impressed so far. The toe box seems a little wider then previous Merrells I've owned which I find very comfortable. Looked like James Conrad was wearing them at Worlds.
