now there is an option. Skate shoes may do it for me. They are made for wear on the side of the shoe.

During an ice bowl I recently played in, it just happened to be one of the three days it snowed here in delaware. My buddies and I were all standing around talking about which shoes would be best. The course has some slick brick teepads that are hagard in when wet. WELL, Mike Moser is in our local club. Much to our surprise, he came in cleats. And won. By about 9 strokes. I would suggest cleats for fresh/current snowfall/rain/mud. Also i would suggest being Mike Moser. That dude is good.

For situation like that it's easier to just get those cleats for ice fishing that are meant to slip over your regular shoes. That way you can take them off and put them on when you need them.

I've got a pair of hiking boots that I use for work hiking and DG for two years now and they are still in great shape!

The coil style ones wont do enough I wouldn't think, and the spikes would be way too grippy.

Yeah, but that guy was talking about snow. On snow/ice the spikes are great.

Also depends on the cleats. I had some ice fishing cleats with small carbide bits in them that gripped great on slick surfaces, but didn't really dig into soil because they were just too short. My baseball cleats in dig in a lot harder than those.

the soles are also designed for abuse. i mean grip tape is sand paper adhered to the deck. DC tends to have pretty tough soles on their shoes. if you go that route, look for soles that arent too gummy feeling or thin. they wont hold up for long.

Five-Ten Impacts. Go to Zappo's and check out my review of this shoe. It's easy to find since it's the only one that reviews the shoe for disc golf. It's the best shoe I've come across for disc golf. I still haven't worn through the toe after a year of playing (4 to 6 times a month). There like Vans on steroids!

I've tried FiveTen Tennie. I play about 20 rounds a month. They have lasted about 2 months before the toe wore through. The FiveTen was grippy on the tee pad but slippery on wet ground. The tread is almost completly gone now ( 2mos of wear).

I'm now trying out some addidas tennis shoes I found for $25 at an outlet store. So far (about 5 rounds in) they're like the Five Ten, grippy on concrete, and slick on wet ground.
