http://www.amazon.co...s=merrell shoes

 

 

I think the best competition shoe for 2015 is going to be the Merrel Moab Ventilators.  These little gems have been used by real world operators for a few years and are just now making their way to the feet of "serious shooters."

 

Benefits:

 

Durable.  These shoes have a sturdy and durable vibram sole with a multi traction tread for any surface.

 

Comfortable: lightweight "ventilator" construction with a foam bedding and leather/mesh upper; these shoes fit good, feel good, and keep your feet cool.

 

Price: $69 and up...the serious shooter saves big and these shoes are good for at least a season. 

 

Draw Backs:

 

Price:  These shoes cost $69 so they must not be good.

 

Colors:  You can not get them in pink, red, or yellow.  When you don't want to be noticed for you sucky skill (and what C class loser does) it's hard to get noticed with these shoes.  They generally come in shades of brown.

 

So if you're looking for a real shoe that is relevant, useful and won't break the bank...these shoes are for you.  Of course if you think your B card comes in the same box as your shoes and 2k production gun, move along.


I like to rewatch election night 2016 coverage and I want to marry a conservative black girl who likes to shoot.

I saw shoes like that at Big 5, but they cost a lot less.

The soles of those shoes look like they suck. March, April, and May are falling with a loaded gun season where I live. I need shoes with enough grip to possibly break the ankles of lesser men. If those fuckers are any good send a pair to Candice for her to destroy.

I have the boot version and they are the most uncomfortable shoe I own.  

 

Stay away.

Dude from Haiti was wearing these at the World Chute.  Apparently, he spent all his money on a unicorn and boss gear.

I have the ones in the link....so they are like a running shoe/light hiker, what ever.  I find them very comfy....  YMMV

Vibram soles are too stiff, I want running shoes when shooting, not hiking shoes.

These aren't stiff like a vibram lug glued to the bottom of a boot.  More like a light hiker shoe....

Yard Sale, probably could sale the parts to get you started on a couple pairs of these now that his motor cycle career is on hold.

I'm on my second pair of Inov-8 315s (first pair lasted ~3 years of shooting and occasional trail running). They have enough tread for mud and decent traction on smooth surfaces—I haven't gone ass over teakettle on wet wood planks. No Gore-Tex, but hiking socks and sock liners keep my feet warm when things get wet.

I thought this was a post on good shoes, either it's a spoof or bullshit,  how is that kind of tread going to compete against something like i used to wear, .. ( nike land sharks, which were uncomfortable as hell, but damn it did they grip. )

I had the 243s Very comfortable, grippy on all surfaces including fault lines and such. But they only lasted me a season. 

 

Latest experiment is Belleville mini-mil boots. Fairly grippy, and being able to keep some polish on them keeps them water resistant.
