Default Adidas Terrex Swift R GTX

Has anyone had experience with the Adidas Terrex Swift R GTX? I've heard good things about the Fast X for disc golf, but I'm hoping someone can provide some insight on the Swift R. Currently in the market for new DG shoes and I'm looking for a lighter weight.

I just got a pair and used them for 2 rounds Saturday. It was wet but I stayed dry. Great grip on concrete, wet grass, dirt, and a couple rubber tees. Very comfy. The speed lacing didn't tie up real tight so I had to pull them tighter several times, but once tight, they stayed there. I have a non goretex pair also and both are a little noisy as the rubber toe enclosure isn't real loose yet. Dunno if that will break in. Love them tho and highly recommend them. I had to clean out the soles a couple times but because the treads are so far apart, they don't get too clogged. Very dry most important.

Only issue with Adidas goretex pull tight shoes is after about 3 months they wouldn't stay tight and then after 6 months I realized the thin "laces" started to cut through the outside of the shoe.

Yup. The Adidas GTX's I bought at the start of last season have fallen apart. The "laser laces" also have started to hurt my feet as well. I will say this though, they are very lightweight and do keep your feet dry. Just not all that comfortable.

I tried these on at REI, they were much heavier and stiffer than they look in pictures. I didn't care for the feel. I picked up another pair of Salomon XA Pro Ultra GTX's instead. It's like my 5th pair, why switch now I guess.

Back to the drawing board on my search for new DG shoes.

Are the Salomon ones light? I'm looking for some lighter weight shoes, with a decent rubber toe.

Salomons are light and they last. They are my favorite out of the rei shoe selection.

I have a pair and I really like them. Have had no issues and I find them quite comfortable. I have the Saloman's as well. I think the Adidas are lighter than the Saloman's. Both are good shoes for DG. I find the Swift's have better grip than the Saloman's though.

Not sure how this went unnoticed on here so far... '

Adidasoutdoor.com is running a promotion for 40% off your order with the promo code "innova". If you combine with the $20 off for creating an account, you can get a pair of Swift R GTX for $61 shipped, which is an incredible deal - normally $135. I could not resist this deal and my shoes are in the mail.

Thanks Adidas for hooking us disc golfers up!
