    Marshals has Nike Air hightops for $50. They are great for trapshooting and have good ankle support. Feel free to suggest any other good shoes.

    Shoes that lend themselves to a good flat stable platform. My preferred shoe because of wide feet are Sketchers. Notably, I have seen several trap shooters wearing them lately.

    I watched a new shooter trying to shoot with rocker soled shoes. Talk about shooting with a handicap:)

    Hello: I use Salomon Speedcross 3's. They work well for USPSA, IDPA, 5-stand, sporting clays and trap. Very comfortable for all day wear. I had mine on for 12 hours today. Thanks, Eric

    Shoes are over rated... go barefoot and your scores will go up. Trust me. Corwin

    At my range... no shirts, no shoes... no service.

    I wear any one of a couple pair of walking shoes... New Balance - Tidy Whities...

    I recall many years ago Orvis sold shooting shoes... wedged design forcing folks to lean forward as well as incorporating a barrel rest over the toes....

    I like my cowboy boots. The high heel get you to put your weight on your toes and lean forward. Seems like every pair of walking or athletic shoe I've tried does the exact opposite. BYG

    Red Wings are the only shoes that seem to fit these wide flat old feet. They got rid of my plantar facitis also. Bill

    I have a pair of Cowboy boots I bought a long time ago in the 1970s that have been re-soled several times and they are from Water Buffalo and they still fit.

    They put your weight forward and on your toes, which works for me, I need to get them into the shoe repair shop for new insoles which have come loose.

    These are good boots, bought them off the guy that used to come to the shoots in a RED TRAILER at the Grand American and Ohio State Shoot.

    The uppers are still in excellent condition, They are Nocona Boots made in Texas
    And I purchased a genuine Stetson Hat which I still have both are 43 years old

    Lately I've been trying to go "China free" - talk about a difficult task. Seems everything I look at is made in China these days. But, I've noticed that New Balance shoes are made right here in the USA. I have bought my last pair of Nike shoes (not sure where they are made) and I will now buy New Balance. Anyone know of other shoes made right here? John

    I've got 2 pair of New Balance running shoes. What APrice said above is true. New Balance shoes are made in several places now besides the USA.

    Ah yes, I recall many years ago everyone had to have green Red Wing chucka boots, then cowboy boots, then "shoot boots" and finally cross trainers. I could not detect much difference.
