Any input on:
comparison to the Milos,
sizing (site says they run half a size small),
and anything else,
Nice, didn't know they were making that shoe. Let us hope that this 3rd one is better than the milo and milo II.
I've seen a few of the pro's wearing them in the last couple tournaments. Curious to see how these babies hold up to the abuse. I might give Keen another go after Christmas.
They are better, but still not perfect. The glue is the problem. They run a half size small.
Still very comfortable. Been wearing mine since I got them at Pro Worlds. Part of the bottom are falling apart already. Not so much normal golf wear and tear, but falling apart as usual. Need to call them and see about getting a replacement pair or something...
Over all they are a lot better then my Milo II.
I love Keen clogs, but their shoes are of a low quality imo. The shoe that has worked best for me are made by a company called Five Ten AKA 5-10. I sport the Impact high tops and after a year of playing the toe area is starting to wear, but not wear through!
These shoes or this company are not for everyone. Their shoes are very stiff at first. Since they are made for approach climbing or downhill mountain biking (my Impacts), but I love these shoes. The traction on wet teepads is crazy! I can treat them like dry teepads and not worry at all about slipping. My only concern would be rubber teepads, but I've yet to play on any since I've bought these shoes.
I've been through Salomons, Keens, Merrills, Montrails, Garmonts, and the like, but none of them has come close to the toughness of my 5-10's.
If Vans made a waterproof shoe i'd be in heaven.
Keens are nice and dry, but they are slick as snot.
Salomons are grippy, but they wore too quick.
Merrills had decent grip, but leaked.
And.....they are all so freekin expensive it's not even funny.
Glad to hear some feedback. Almost bought Keens awhile back, but picked up Merril Moab's cause they are Waterproof. YA RIGHT> They let in more water than sandals. My BEST PAIR so far has been a pair of Hi-Tec Ultra lites. Waterproof, GREAT grip, and only $59 when I got them.
Hi Tecs have had the best grip on cement pads of any hiking shoe i've used yet. They leaked like crap and I blew the side out of them in 40 rounds, but they gripped like glue. Got em for $39.95, so $1.00 a round is what I paid for those shoes.
spry em down with truck bed liner they wont leak any more!
What you need up north are some Seal Skins socks or something like them. Waterproof shoes, no matter who makes them. Will only last for so long. Heck my GOOD old water proof Keens lasted a MONTH! So check out REI for some water proof socks Jeff. They'll work much better! The only bummers are that they don't breath and are a bit on the thick side.
Danners are the best boot and shoe company i have found. They are pricey but last and are comfy and are MEAN for discin it.
Why don't you try a pair of keens that are just regular hiking shoes instead of the ones that are marketed for disc golf? I have a pair of waterproof Siskiyous and they have no signs of wear and tear at all and have had them for over a year (and I wear them to work everyday and play disc in them). The waterproofing definitely works too I have submerged my foot multiple times and have kept my feet completely dry. Just wished i would have known about the sizing issues before hand because i just got my regular shoe size (not like they have a half size in between 14 and 15 anyways lol) and it was a little snug at first but in a couple weeks they broke in to be real comfortable shoes. I would try the DeLaveagas if they offered more then one color
