Looking for shoe recommendations
« on: November 11, 2018, 05:03:56 PM »
I'm in the market for new shoes, and I'm a toe dragger. I am currently using the Brunswick TPU-X, and previously had a couple pairs of 900 Tour Ultras. All of these I destroyed the toe caps. I'm thinking of the gold /black Dexter Hybrids as my next shoe

Any one have these and are toe draggers? How's the durability of the toe cap? Any other toe draggers that can recommend a durable shoe?

I had the TPU-X and liked them but as a toe dragger I killed them pretty fast. I went back to the Dexter SST 8 Pro and have liked them a lot. I like the wider toe box of Dexter shoes better. I've had them for over a year so far and expect to have them for at least another year based on the durability I've seen probably longer

ordering a pair of Hammer Boss's to see if theyre an upgraded Force but for now Dexter 9's H.T. It stands up to toe dragging and you can remove the sole a whole lot easier.

Thanks for the responses, I'll be looking into the HT's as well.

The Force's were better than the TPU-Xs as far as toe dragging but slightly. The Boss's have a plastic overlay that protects the toe sole from separating which the Force's do not have and they are a bit more comfortable than the HT's. Currently have the Blk Carbon Force's, Dexter HT 9's, Dexter BOA(t)'s and ordering a pair of White Forces and Boss's. I like keeping shoes in rotation lol

@AlonzoHarris Yeah! I agree with you on this point.

They are pretty much jus the old Linds. At least they appear like those to me ;)
