Default Disc Golf Sandals?

Thanks to working from home and living in the desert i'm blessed to almost never wear have to wear shoes, except for when I throw. When I first started playing I destroyed a pair of Keen sandals and havent tried playing in any since, last week however I forgot my shoes on a trip to a course in a neighboring town and played in my "homemade" huaraches and LOVED it - except for having to repair them after every tee shot.

Does anyone here regularly throw in sandals and if so can you recommend a brand?

It's very easy to shift your weight in damp, Old Navy flip flops.

I wear some Teva sandals similar to these. I wear these as everyday sandals as well. However, when I am disc golfing in the sandals I make sure all the straps are very tight so I can actually get some traction.

Teva brand have soles with some arch support for my old feet. Off brands have flat soles with zero support.

I don't play a round in them but I practice in my realtree Crocs all the time. I'd probably be comfortable playing a relatively flat course in them if it wasn't too rocky. Just gotta put them in sport mode.

I'm sure they're comfortable and all, but those things are hideous looking.

Chaco Sandals 100% I recommend the Z2 with the added toe strap.

Yeah the Crocs. I'd like to get a pair of sandals like the ones you posted. I just got some Keens a couple weeks ago so those will have to wait.

I wear some cheap Wal Mart sandals if it's really hot out, but any kind of moisture and I'm constantly falling out of them.
