I have had my pair since they introduced the stealth rubber sole as an option (and when they were stil offered in colors other than...black). I have put these through the ringer as approach "shoes", have done 30 mile days in them (not recommended), and they served as my basic summer sandals. After a few years of pretty intense use, the only complaint I have is that the straps are beginning to cut through on the insides of each ankle due to sand and gravel build up in the webbing holes. I will have them reslung as soon as the straps give out and hopefully they will be around for a good bit longer. Overpriced, but you can find decent deals out there.
