I would avoid Adidas Terrex as those run pretty skinny and take a bit to break in.
I use Salomon XA PRO 3Ds (in wide). I agree, avoid Adidas in general unless you have narrow feet.

Default Asolo Hiking shoes

My favorite Disc Golf shoes the last few years have been by Asolo. I picked them up at REI.

Waterproof, lightweight, low profile, Vibram rubber, great quality.

Expensive but worth it. Keen's and Merrell's don't last for squat.

The Teva's are good too. A little heavier but good quality.

I did a quick search this morning for a pair of Merrell Moab 2 and came across REI selling a USED pair. I've never seen anybody selling used shoes before. Is this something new? These were "Lightly worn" but there was also a "Moderately worn" condition that they offer when available. The price was good at $48. I imagine lightly worn is that they didn't fit and somebody returned them. I don't think I'd be comfortable buying moderately worn shoes, though.

REI is the only retailer I know of that regularly sells used shoes. That's because they have such a great return policy. If your not happy with your purchase, you can return it.

I think they started limiting that to 1 year from date of purchase for clothing/shoes, because people were abusing the policy, returning worn out shoes 2-3 years after they were purchased.

They then sell the returned merch at a discount.

Not many places will let you return a pair of shoes that have visible wear on them.

I'd jump at the chance to buy lightly used - keeps them out of the landfill, less money, probably same return policy anyway. Got any used FDs in that warehouse, REI??

Tearing like pictures in link. Can I get a waterproof shoe that's lightweight and durable in area where currently tearing? Too much to ask?

How have they worked out?

I've used that Solomon Speedcross and it's a good shoe. mostly I use Asics trail runners though.

How's the support of the Solomon Speedcross? I currently play a lot of pretty rugged courses, so support/stability matters a lot. Comfort doesn't do me much good if it can't handle a slope, rocks/roots, etc.

I do have a pair of Asics trail runners right now (lower end, Gel-Venture 6) which I bought to hopefully replace some awesome New Balance trail runners that they stopped making a few years ago. I've been a little disappointed. Maybe they just don't fit my feet as well as the New Balance?

My current go-to disc golf shoes are a pair of Columbia Redmond hiking shoes. They are comfortable, durable, and give the right amount of support while allowing enough motion/flexibility. I think I paid $70 or so. Definitely worth the price.

support is pretty good on the Speedcross. I don't live in a crazy rocky area, but I still scramble up and down ridiculous creek beds to retrieve discs where a 55 yo shouldn't. fit is everything though. Asics are always spot on for me and New Balance rarely work. I would buy the Speedcross again if I stumbled on a deal
