Been using Merrell Trail Gloves for the past maybe dozen rounds or so as apposed to Terrex's and my only complaint so far is that the Merrell's tend to twist and warp around my foot (think of Calvin and his Nike's doing whatever impossible things they do when he tees off) and that has lead to the top of my plant foot getting bruised and just outright feeling uncomfortable.

I havent noticed any difference in my game at all. My timing is still perfect, my putting is still crap, I still have the same grip on the tee and on the fairway. I think Im going to try some vivobarefoots once I need to buy a new pair. I like the build quality of the other vivos that I have and I feel like the trail versions will be beefier versions of their everyday shoes.

Just an idle thought, though.
Not sure if any of you guys remember back to 2011 Worlds in Santa Cruz - Keen released a disc golf specific shoe call the Delaveaga, players pack included a pair.

Nice strong, snug fitting shoe, but the sole wore down pretty quickly to smooth all the way across, and was just too grippy for some teepads and your knee and ankle got torqued.

Looks like I'm in the minority preferring Gore-Tex Terrex shoes and I'm okay with that. I've tried so many different shoes over the years and for my needs, they've done the trick. Most durable and least stink when wet compared to others.

They were large diameter, felt like a brick, quickly fell apart and Hooters girls were sent to distract you from the obvious problems, right?

Owned two pair, probably a tie with the Salomon xa pro 3D for favorite dg shoe ever.

Again....that's what I recall. If I have a chance tonight, I'll re-watch it and update this.
I found it.....

Hole 9 (41:31 mark). Jerm says he almost rolled his ankle on the tee pad.

In addition: Hole 4 tee pad looked bad, the front right corner hung down like a dog-earred page.

Hole 5, Jerm calls the slickest tee pad ever.

I loved these shoes and the next few models that followed these up. Once Keen stopped making a shoe like this I switched to Merrell and Adidas

Yeah at one point Amazon had the Saltzmann WP’s for $60 right as my second pair of De La’s were on their last legs. I think after those is when I scored the xa pro 3d’s for about $60 a pair, and been using some form of Salomon since.
