So how should you choose your Disc Golf shoes?
How Do I Choose The Best Disc Golf Shoes For Me?
According to many professional players, shoes with bad traction lead to throwing with more upper body and less power. But everything comes down to what type of terrain you play on.
The 4 main factors to consider are breathability vs waterproofing, traction, weight/size, and ankle support.
Breathability vs Waterproofing
Waterproof shoes are great for rain or muddy/slippery conditions, however, wearing waterproof shoes when the conditions are not wet can cook your feet and begin to melt away the protective lining of the shoes.
Depending on the terrain that you play in, shoes need different levels of traction to ensure peak performance. If you play on mostly flat ground, then a trail running shoe like the Salomon XA Pro 3D would work perfectly. However, if you play in areas with hills or mountains, the Adidas Terrex Swift R3 hiking shoe would provide much greater traction because of its cleat-like outsole.
Weight and Durability
Weight is an important factor in Disc Golf shoes because heavier shoes, while more durable, can result in sloppier footwork and less power, especially for smaller players. While the lighter-weight shoes will be easier to play in, but less durable.
Although many players choose low-cut shoes. Mid-tops are a great choice for anyone who desires greater ankle support or plays on unpredictable terrain.
