Good Fit, Questionable Durability

I bought these shoes right before I left for a month-long hike. Yes, I know I should have broken them in a bit first, but time was a bit tight. Anyway, the fit was great; I didn't have any trouble with blisters for the first couple of weeks wearing them right out of the box; we hiked around 12 miles per day. We hiked in deep snow for a number of days, but, unlike other waterproof shoes I've had, these shoes almost always dried overnight.

The reason I only gave the shoes 3 stars is durability. They broke a few days before the end of the hike (after ~220 miles)...the seam on the outside of my foot split (which meant wet feet all the time). The soles aren't overly worn (see picture), and for 160 dollars I really expected that they would hold up a little better.
