Tons of people use them for disc golf. They're comfortable and they keep the water out if you're playing in wet grass, but they won't keep your feet dry if you step into a creek.

There have been some complaints that the sole peels back from the toe. I've had mine for 3 years and they're still going strong.

I have the Gore-tex model, and love them! After three years they're wearing out, but about the same rate as the sole. Used to use Merrell Chameleons, but they're way stiff like boots. These are good to go out of the box. Very light as well.

I wasn't super impressed with the gortex versions. I still use the non gortex version for disc golf. Little cheaper and I don't have buyers remorse when my socks get wet.

I went with Keen Targhee II because they fit my double wide, thick feet better and more comfortably. I tried the wide MOABs on three times before I even tried Keens.

I have some waterproof Merrells. Good shoes, comfortable like crazy. I agree with the toe peel, though. I didn't even bother to look until someone else mentioned it at a tourney a couple of weeks back. I think it's on my left shoe (non-plant foot); the fabric shoe part is tearing away from the sole very slightly. It's hidden under the curve of the shoe, so you wouldn't even notice unless you were really looking. If I am feeling like it, I shall try to post a pic later.

I have chameleons they are stiffer and better if you play on a rocky/hilly course. They are fine in water up to ankle deep (height of boot.) good shoes.

I used to like them until I started wearing minimalist shoes. now my feet have widened (they were wide to begin with) and my toes have splayed. I can't stand normal shoes anymore. I really would like to see a waterproof minimalist shoe with a slightly thicker sole. I'm glaring at you Vibram.

Sorry, but i didn't have any luck with my Moabs. After about 2 months my socks would be soaked from just the dew on the grass. Also the toes separated after about 3 months. After only 5 months they ended up in the trash.

I the Merrell Moabs about a month ago and have worn them every day since. They are very comfortable and light weight. Have worn them every round I've played, although I haven't had a chance to test them in wet grass yet. My first impressions are very good though.
