Kind of curious if anyone has done much Disc Golfing in sandals (no, not in Jamaica)? I'm not talking about the thong style sandals, but the hiking style sandals. These things have the stability of a normal shoe, but the breathability and comfort of a sandal (assuming you're barefoot). I was looking at the Teva Dozer III for an example (see below). Haven't spent too much time researching different sandals, but I'm kind of curious about the following:
Durability - If you've used any sandals, have you found them to typically have weaker construction than shoes? My Teva Riva's are absolutely awesome and I've had no peeling of the sole after about a year of solid use.
Comfort - Are there even any sandals out there that are comfortable enough to walk around a course for an hour or two? Any issues with lots of rocks/sticks falling into the sandal?
I like the Teva designs mostly because the majority of their footwear has a solid sole attached to the rest of the shoe, and none of the pretty little separate rubber pieces that just rip off after playing a few rounds. In theory, the whole sole of the shoe would have to tear away from the rest of the shoe to mess them up.
Understanding I have the Teva Riva's, and they are awesome shoes, I'm mostly looking for something that I can wear for more casual rounds, so as to not wear out the soles of my Rivas as quickly. I'm also thinking about a cheaper Riva (the Mesh). I'm not in a rush to purchase since this year's season is going to be coming to a close in a month or two, but it's something I'd like to know for next Spring. Still toying with the idea of a pair of Five Fingers also, and thanks to the other thread it sounds like I would need the TrekSports.
