I like the Merrell Moab 2 Ventilator Wide (J06011W). I have a narrow heal and wide toe area; this shoe fits me well and has lasted. I'm mainly a forehand thrower and most courses I play have concrete tee pads. These shoes have lasted quite a long time with a little toe wear (slight wear, no holes or material damage - can't easily see the damage).

Terrex: Sole was great, the upper part of the shoe was shredded in <6 mo. Only did 1 pair

Salomon: the aforementioned XA Pro 3D were by shoes of choice until they raised the price to $150. They're my favorite, but not that that price...

Keen
Targhee II: the side sole split, they fixed that on the Targhee III
Targhee III: my current shoe of choice but its a little bulky

Merrell: I have destroyed every Vibram sole I've owned.

Peaking: I think pros are just like the rest of us and try different options... Nike didn't have much market share in this category a few years ago, so this is just the "new mouse trap".

Seeing how closely new players follow pros and mimic them... if I were a pro, I'd try some stupid ****, just to see if I could get the lemmings to follow...

Does anyone have a good recommendation in a wide size (11.5 or 12)? I do not have a runup, more of a slow walking X-step, but most courses I play ARE concrete pads.
I know that barefoot shoes arent the best for standing up to concrete tees but have you tried anything like that before because they do have a much wider toe box. I dont have wide feet and I prefer this kind of shoe for everything, except disc golf on concrete tees.

I have wide feet and like Merrells also. Mine say J06029W inside the tongue of the shoe. They are MOAB 2 waterproof hiking shoes. I have been wearing them for about 2.5 years now and have three pair. All three pair are still usable, but the soles are worn and traction reduced on the oldest pair. I play 3-5 rounds/week year round. They are much more comfortable for me than Adidas (due to my wide feet), and hold up better than any other shoes I've tried. I agree with a previous comment that the waterproofing is not great with these. My newest pair (purchased Sept 2020) is still a little water resistant, but not waterproof. Even when new, they are really more of a water resistant shoe than truly waterproof.

True, but my New Balance, Salomons and Nikes didn't fare any better either.

I will say that my Salomon winter boots have held up extremely well, but for how thick the tread is (and how much they cost) they better.

Tip on the Terrex to save money - get a pair without Gortex for summer wear/dry days . They cost anywhere from 30 to 50% less, and breathe better and are a bit lighter and more flexible on your feet.

Merrell soles tend to last a bit long for me. I am in year 3 of two pairs and still do not have any issues yet.

Also I tend to drag my feet more often than most.

I really like Merrell Vapor Trails and think they are among the best shoes for the money for disc golf as long as you don’t mind them not being water proof.

Here is the wear one three pairs; back one is one year old, middle is 7 months , closest(lime) pair is 3 months.

My Keen experience was not good. Have not gone back after owning Targhee IIs (lasted only 9 months), but maybe I should revisit them?

I've had very good luck with Merrell Chameleons and Moabs. The shoes fall apart after about 18-24 months, but the soles show very little damage.

Using a pair of Terrex as my everyday shoes (and some disc), not sure which variety and I'm not taking them off at work to check . They are holding up pretty OK

I don't **** with goretex (spelling?) or any other version of waterproofing. I'll check them out once my last pair of Vapor Trails (I think that's the version) are dieing
