I have a pair of the Merrell Moabs. Very comfortable, great grip, and holding up quite well after about a month and a half and a good 50+ rounds in on em. The only con I have found so far (other than the cost!) was that they don't breath very well, and my feet do get warm during the summer months. (although I can imagine they'll be nice for those November rounds in Wisconsin!)

Oddly enough, that's what I've been playing with for the last year, or less, and I loved them! The only problem is that the toe cap doesn't last very long because I've been needing a new pair for a couple of months now.

i used to be a big supporter of Merrells. But in the last couple years their quality has drasticly declined. i would not spend a penny on a pair of shoes from them.

i will be on the search myself here come winter when my last pair of merrels wear out. so after 6yrs of the same shoes i gotta change.

btw- biggest compliant is that they switched from a two-stage insole that molded to your foot to a piece of foam that disintegrates and holds moisture. also, my first pair last almost 3 years before seams started to seperate. the last two pairs have begun seperating within a couple months under the same conditions.

i dont like Keens but thats not because of quality. they just dont make a shoe that i find comfortable to wear all day.

This is awesome and all of the responses are great. I really like the waterproof so I am for sure going to stick with that since we have been getting poured on here in Ohio quite frequently. This is only going to be my second pair of DG shoes, so I actually want to do my research.

Has anyone used any of the other Keen shoes, minus the Milo's?
Yes, but I find keens in general to ba a lil too wide and heavy.
The hedgehogs' cross patterened nubs are too much for disc golf.

Moabs are great all around- not quite specialized in any area, but good in all.
If you know that's the shoe for you, try the moab ventilator, it takes the moad and shaves it down a lil for better breathability. They also make a goretex version.

Agree about the insoles.
I suggest upgraded insoles. 25-55 bucks but if you're the type to notice differences, they may be worth it.

This. I've only had mine for about 30 rounds. They're really comfortable for the club footed. I hope they're as durable as they are comfortable.

I love my gortex Merrell Chameleons, they are fantastic for keeping the feet dry.
