need advice on dg footware

Postby sublime113 » Sat Aug 02, 2008 9:42 am

I currently have a pair of boots that rocks for disc golf, but there is a really nice 9 hole course that the person who made one of the nicest 18 hole courses in NE ohio also designed and it is on the beach about 3 miles from my house. I find now that with work I don't always have enough time to go up to the nice 18 because it is far away. The largest problem with the beach course is that I always get a lot of crap in my shoes. Up until yesterday I have been wearing an old pair of adidas sandals and then shooting barefoot. A reed broke through the bottom and stabbed me in the foot while I was in the middle of the round. Can anyone reccomend a nice pair of sandals for walking around the course and not getting blisters and such. I dont like the thong design ones and don't plan to throw in them. I just need something that will hold up to the abuse and be comfortable and preferably cheap. Anyone have any suggestions?

I'm sure they have something that will work for you.. or at least give you an idea of what to look for.

I got a pair that look very similar to those at Walmart for $10. That have a closed toe just like the ones on the site. They are almost identical. Very comfortable. I wear them during the rain or on muddy courses.

Merrell Moab Ventilator Mid cut with some aftermarket inserts and wool light hiking socks.

I moved to these from Vans and trail running shoes after turning an ankle and they have been sooooo comfy 8)
