If you want zero drop, go with Alta's Low drop, there's a lot. I like Solomons, they last me well enough.. but I don't expect any shoes to last a year, and Adidas (in the US) are too narrow for my feet.

Merrils fall apart on me, as do Keens.. and the Oboz I had, gave me a hellishly painful foot. Hrm, maybe Vans.

Ran a Tough Mudder event in an old pair of these. Grip is crazy good! Watched many people with expensive trail running shoes sliding all over the place. These were my disc golf Go-To shoes for about 4 years. Would have to buy another pair about every year, but they were cheap, so I didnt mind. I use the adiadas goretex now. Have had em about a year and no issues so far.

The zero drops have a round bottom. That messes with stability. Thats worse than a heel.

Should you really be planted on your heel?

Its not about being planted, its about transferring the weight from toe to heel to toe. Rounded soles can cause the knee to hyper extend. This can be true for running as well if ones weight is not far enough forward when the heel strikes.

Ahhhhh.. yea ok. I never hit my heels. I'm a midfoot striker. This changes perception drastically

The previous version of Response Trails had Continental soles with some serious lugs on them. If there is any added resistance to my heel pivot, I can't feel it.

I just ordered some brand new Terrex shoes today. I play about 5 times a week and my last pair has lasted for over a year. They are starting to get holes in them and one area that holds the laces down came off on the right shoe. Still has good grip and traction, just needed a new pair now that tournaments are starting up again. I would recommend the Terrex shoes to anyone.

Yeah the lace loops on mine starting ripping off a few months into wearing them.

Again, my original non waterproof Terrex Swifts have been great. The ones with the Gore-Tex material fell apart quickly and seem to be cheaply made.

I've contacted Adidas Customer Support regarding the issue. I'll let you all know what they say in response.
