Adding a waterproof spray will add a lot of life to your waterproof shoes, IMO. Scotchgard and Kiwi are a couple brands that I've used with success.

Trying to make dg shoes last more than 1 year is tough, IMO.

The worst dg shoe I've had were Salomons. They are so light-weight that they break down faster, IMO. I do like light-weight shoes though. I don't get as tired wearing them. I've been wearing Terrex and Moabs lately.

I cannot find any trail runners, that are flat, in any store. I did find an Aussie company that makes them....but I really dont want to pay international shipping on a pair of shoes that may not fit.
Inov-8 have a super low ramp angle if that is what you are talking about. These for instance have a 4mm drop. That's nothing. I'm surprised more disc golfers aren't wearing these,

Thats better, but those still look like they have a round bottom. Maybe it is an optical illusion without feet in it. I am looking for this with hiking tread.

Whom carries those? I would love to try on a pair.

Oh, so you're not talking about heel drop, but flat across the bottom from left to right, like a skate shoe or Chucks? I went from playing in Chucks to Adidas Response Trails. I don't know if I'm suffering from a loss of weight transfer, but I've never lost my footing since the switch.

I feel like those cleated soles wouldn't feel right. I have given some consideration to this style of shoe though.

Here is what I want, but without spikes....maybe I just need to remove the spikes and try these ball golf shoes...but they are so freaking hot

I wear Merrell chameleon prime stretchs. I have a lot of problems with foot pain and these are the only shoes that don't hurt my feet. I need a shoehorn to get them on, but they fit like a sock, snug but not tight and very supportive. They're light and durable enough to last over a year of daily playing. I has a waterproof version also.

I tried to try those on. Even with help from the shoe store clerk, my turkey feet wouldnt go in. They look very nice, I wish they made wider toe box in those
