Salomon Wings Sky GTX

I have been abusing these shoes for almost a year now. They were great right out of the box and required no break in. They also seemed to be very water proof. However, they lacked adequate traction on snow and loose dirt. After my last short hike and swallow water crossing they started to make a squeaking noise. Upon investigation, I noticed the sole is starting to remove itself from the body. A high end shoe should be able to take a lot more abuse then I gave these things in less then a year. After a quick phone call to BC. They have been boxed up and shipped back. Thanks Backcountry for your awesome warranty. I would have been soured for life by Salomon if not for BC. Thanks
