Cheap or the wrong shoes can do damage to your feet and legs and may cause injury. I have several pairs of Merrell Chameleons and I also wear New Balance or Saloman running shoes. I prefer to play a variety of courses with different terrain and some don't have permanent tee pads (dirt, etc.) or rough terrain so I usually keep a pair of wear goretex and regular chameleons in my truck and a pair of running shoes for nice weather where there has not been much rain or moisture in the previous week. None of the shoes I wear are that attractive but I prefer comfort over looks.
I stick to waterproof, Goretex insultated shoes for all but dead-of-summer rounds. As a flicker, I put all my wear and tear on the left toe, often wearing a hole through there while the rest of the shoe still looks sound. Vibram soles seem to hold up nicely where the others fail.
I've mostly been getting North Face (TNF) shoes lately. New Balance fit nice, but the soles are way to soft.
Just last week,,,I purcuased a pair of REI's Monarch IV Boot. The uppers are Gor-tex (waterproof), while the sole is lugged Vibrum. They are fairly lite and fit like a glove. This model got good reviews. Although one reviewer mentioned the Vibrum sole has some slippage. I have not tested them out in the field yet, but if I find I do not like them I'm allowed to take them back for a different pair. Probably a pair of Targhee II's (mid) by Keen. The above mentioned boot is strictly for winter playing. I have not found my fav. summer shoe yet. Probably something with a lasting "soul". Kevin...great conversation starter.
