If I was trying to look cool, I wouldn't be playing disc golf.


Not my line, but I agree with the sentiment.

You don't think knee socks and cargo shorts is an en vogue fashion statement?

One Trail Running Brand makes Running Sandals that work, though if full Vegan or no wanting beyond minimal shoes they are not for you due to some models using leather and the glue used for them. The brand also makes shoes for running too that are beyond minimal, only a rubber sole and maybe a sockliner. However I forget the brand but the shoes should last from 1000-2000 miles for some reason, only reason with the more shoe like options the upper is why people replace the shoes and turn old ones into sandals. The models can be worn on non trails too, the soles are not really deep tread style. I forget the brand sorry.

I foreget the brand but they were least popular models during the barefoot/minimal fad.

Nope, that is in disc golf more a statement of playing in Tick safety that if it does get too hot out the often Sports or trail running/hiking socks, they hold up best can get pushed down. Sometimes they are wearing taller compression socks or calf compression sleeves to "help with Blood-Flow" but honestly for me it is a hindrance like a tourniquet when doing sports. In running and similar spots though the arm sleeves are nice for days the temps are all over the place not consistent for the time of day or long run where I heat up quick. I use (more used, NEED to get back to running) the non compression sleeves or some ultra light compression as I hate the compression for arms too in running or other like sports. The Leg warmers I hate too for sports unless shin style are needed for a sport like baseball or Soccer.

If it isn't, I need to rethink some life choices.

I've worn sandals in the summer for several years. Teva Hurricanes are my favorite. They have a pretty hard sole that holds up well. Often I can get them on sale through the Teva website.

You certainly aren't going to get any style points wearing Crocs but they offer toe protection which is a big plus for me; losing a toe nail is not a good time.

I haven't owned these, but I really like two pairs of Xero shoes I do own. I have very wide feet especially midfoot and these fit me perfectly. Not sure if this is too much coverage for your tastes:

I just wonder where the heck people are playing that they can forgo the protection of a shoe. The brambles alone would shred you on an NC woods course.

Or maybe people here never miss the fairway? Seems unlikely.
