I liked the Jomez Ledgestone Practice Round video with Calvin, where the show his shoes at the end. Completely worn through at the big toe. Jerm and he make jokes about it somewhere near the beginning of the video, but they don't show a good shot of the shoes until the end.

Looking at the features of the shoe, I don't hate it. Toe cap durability is very important to me when picking out frolf footwear. These look like they could be my "park style course" shoe. (For mountainy courses, I'm always going mid-height hiking boots for the ankle support.)

I'll wait to hear if they last well before dropping that kind of money on a pair. I don't mind paying for durability, but don't really feel like gambling on an unproven product.

The name is regrettable. Maybe they'll come out with a disc golf flip flop next: the Idio Tic.

It's as simple as people's preferences, needs and budgets differ.

I'm all for the free market. Time will tell if these guys can find their niche in the market with their product, brand, and price point.

I’m interested to see how many big names you’ll see actually wearing these. I’d expect not many at all, unless they are sponsored.

Availability on these is going to be scarce for quite a while. They’re talking beginning 2022 at earliest and more likely spring 2022. What happens next? Enough profit up to roll right into another production run, or another Kickstarter with a 6 month wait on shoes again?

I still think warranty claims are gonna be a huge mess with these. When you market a shoe exclusively as a dg shoe and make claims about how it’s better suited for dg than anything else you’re inviting trouble if it doesn’t last longer than any other shoe. Hopefully they budgeted a good chunk of change for replacement shoes. They’ll either get hammered with replacement claims or turn them away claiming “normal wear and tear” as opposed to “product defect” and make a lot of people mad.

Availability will be hurting as they have stated they won't be making all sizes for a while (they aren't clear on what happens if you get in on the kickstarter at a price that includes a pair of shoes and they aren't going to make your size). I can't recall if they stated the number, but they did say if they don't get enough requests for a certain size, they won't be making them right away.

If I were interested in the shoe, I'd be waiting to see what sizes they offer or only get in at a low level to get the 'other' goodies. I would not be happy getting in the kickstarter only to be told...thanks for the money, but we don't foresee making your size in the near future. Especially for a shoe that I really don't see a need for.

This guy is the most active kickstarter company I have ever seen, he actually has been making posts asking for rollcall on bigger sizes such as 14 and 15 and looks to be 20-30 per size from the comments on the updates. He also wanted to know how many women were supporting the campaign as well.

The biggest concern will be fulfilling the kickstarter orders first then depending on supply and materials he will be making them available but as bill said, depends on material supply, size popularity etc.

Quick update: surveys have been sent out to complete our orders, sizes are unisex and will be offered in 5-15 as of now, will post again when I get another update. Oh also there is a Nate sexton color way that is limited edition you can choose for an extra 20$ with all the extra 20 up charge going directly to Nate so it’s safe to assume they definitely have a partnership at this point, still debating going with the red ones or the Nate ones if only to support Nate directly
