Nice photos. I give those about 2 rounds before they're faded and discolored. Maybe a rip too. Mine lasted 8 rounds before I had a warranty replacement and got some Obsidians.

Agree. Keen has denied my warranty after less than 6 months. I have only worn them for a couple disc golf rounds and they have holes. Holes, son! Holes! Their 1 year warranty is bunk.

I hate to say this but the general consensus out there is that Keen's quality control has gone out the window. Most notably, they're Utility line of work shoes have a very poor reputation for durability and longevity. Such a shame. As someone who directly works in quality I find the whole thing fascinating though. This is going to cost them and require some serious damage control. Not honoring warranties is another HUGE reputation wrecker. From a quality perspective it certainly sounds like they're hemorrhaging and they're going to need to stop the bleeding QUICK. Especially since they don't really mainstream advertise.
I am dumb.

...and a drama queen.

Milo's are definitely NOT waterproof in any way and then they never dry out! I will give a pair of Milo IIs a try but not expecting much.

I bought a pair of Keen hiking shoes last year before they started making disc golf-specific shoes. I was just looking for waterproof shoes that appeared comfortable and durable. I've played tons of rounds on them so far, and traveled through many swamps/creeks/mud/etc. They're not pretty, but they have plenty of life left in them. No sign of tearing or falling apart. I'm surprised (and disappointed) that these are falling apart on you guys, as these are the first pair of shoes that have stood up to the beating of disc golf for me. I was looking forward to getting another pair.

Milo II's have been very comfortable coming from Salomon's (they were too narrow for my feet). About 120 holes of golf with a lot of extra throws off the pads over the last 3 days and they show no signs of wear, but they shouldn't.

Can anyone recommend a lighter weight (likely not waterproof, to aid in weight) shoe by Keen or comparable fit for summer play? The Milo II is warm, even in very cold weather and I think when it is 90 out they would cause a lot of sweat. I love the fit and feel of these, they are my first Keen's, but would like something a bit more breathable once it warms up again.
