Wide and comfortable toe box and yet my foot doesn't slide around in them. The toe has a pretty beefy guard that does well with rolling and toe sliding if you have that in your disc golf throwing form. They dry out super fast and don't hold a lot of water if it is a wet round. I know some people like waterproof shoes, but I prefer a shoe that breathes well and this one certainly does. If you wear down the insoles you just have to email the Oboz company and they send you a new pair of insoles for free.

The only thing I will say against them is that parts of the lugs on the sides can start to chunk off a bit, but for the past two pairs that I've had, it doesn't really seem to affect the functionality of the shoe.

I've had 2 pairs of the Firebrand II Low and will continue to buy them unless I find something better. They are great for disc and also hold up well on workdays. I just picked up a pair of the Tamarack Low in the "Garage Sale" at REI for $60. They are pretty good but when they are worn out I will go back to the Firebrand II.
