My Merrells are holding up nicely so far. Love the Goretex, way more than wearing Seal Skins. I stepped up half a size and am wearing 2 pair of socks and it's been really comfortable. The shoes haven't leaked at all despite playing in some really wet conditions. Whether I get a year or two out of them is unknown at this point. If I could get 150 rounds out of them thus costing about a buck a round, it would be totally worth it to me.

Yeah but are all those stubbed toes really worth the extra putt or two you now hit?

Got a round in today with the new shoes.....Really grippy, comfortable. The heel seems to be a little big for some reason and throws me off a bit, and it felt like the shoes just wanted to slip off the back of my foot if the laces were loose at all. I think I am happy with them though...We'll see in a month of two if there is another shoe swap.

All my shoes the last few years felt that way until they broke in better.

This year I went from new balances to columbia ankle hikers....good shoes. Blains Farm and fleet has a great variety and usually on sale. 65.00 is a steal. FYI get more ankle support than tennis shoes.

sportsshoesdotcom, shoebuydotcom. both have decent sale pricing if you can find the shoe in the right size. hundreds of different makes and models to choose from. sportsshoes seemed the cheapest.

I have been using my Merrels for over a year now. I have a few rips in the mesh but besides that they have been great (non-gore tex pair). I have a high top pair as well with the gore-tex, but without a little help they were getting leaky...... which leads me to....... anyone looking for waterproofing get SNO-SEAL!!!! It is a beeswax waterproofing goop. Hard to find in stores but its online. Easy to use...... Warm your oven up to about 150 or so, turn it off, warm up the shoes until they are very warm to the touch and apply a good coat of SNO-SEAL. Wipe off excess. I have done this with numerous shoes/boots and even some gloves. It works wonders for waterproofing, seriously. I had a pair of wal mart boot/shoes that I used for 3 years and applied SNO-SEAL once a year. If the snow/water wasn't over my ankles my feet were dry, always.

Will definitely turn the leather dark brown. Used to use on leather hikers. Do not know how it would affect the nylon part. Could plug micropores on gore-tex affecting breathability. I use camp dry, Kiwi or other silicon based sprays. Downsides are fumes, and need to re-treat frequently.

I must be lost. Could have sworn this was the most recent DG shoe thread.

And sportsshoes.com is by far the most expensive site I have ever seen Tim lol.
