Pathetic Glue

I bought the Keen Austin for Keen's reputation of quality and style. At first look it is a beautiful shoe; however, I have had NO luck with their durability.

The shoe begins to delaminate just down from the toe piece and a gap starts to split open where the gap readily expands even more!

I got the shoes warrantied (took 5 weeks to get them back) and my new pair of Austin's are having the exact same problem after a month of wear.

Maybe this years glue is different from the last but this shoe is pathetic and I recommend it to nobody.

I just received my new pair yesterday and right out of the box the left shoe was displaying the same thing. I haven't even wore them yet!!
