Need some help from ya'll. I'm tearing my shoe as pictured. Seems like I need more durable upper area. Would prefer water proof. Would also prefer light weight. Is that possible?

Yeah, you and me both. Couldn't get it to link, I made a double post essentially in the "best disc golf shoes" thread and got it to work there:

It's a grippy, flexible plastic. Can be pretty inconsistent, but lots of people like it for winter

Getting a good deal on shoes basically comes down to two things:

1) What shoes fit you well and have the features you're looking for (e.g. waterproof, toe cap, lightweight...)

2) What retailer is discounting them, when you're ready to buy.


It's not easy to find shoes you really like, at a good price, when you really need them. That's why I keep my eyes open for deals, and tend to grab them before I need them when deals pop up.

Wasn't happy with my last pair of Merrells.
Hi-Tec seems to most consistently offer the best value from what I've seen. My Hi Tecs are as comfortable as any Merrell or Keens I've owned, are holding up nicely, and cost about $50 less.

Always have a pair of DX shoes on hand for rainy days. You will need that extra grip!

Do hi-tecs have shoe with all of those features you listed (waterproof, toe cap, light weight)?

Is there certain stores that carry hi-tecs? I had a pair many years ago and it was really nice. Used em for hiking and paintball at the time... super comfy.
