Thin lining wears far too quickly
These are very trendy canvas shoes that go great with jeans, khakis, or shorts. Heres the problem - after walking in them (~3mi/day) for less than a month, my heel rubbed through the very thin liner and started to rub & blister against the canvas material. After less than thirty days, I couldnt wear them without getting a very painful blister on each heel. Ive decided to return them and will try to get the KEEN Oslo shoe...am hoping for a better turnout from a shoe designed for walking in. The bottom line for me is that the liner of a shoe should never rub straight through after less than a month. That's simply poor construction.
On a brighter note, kudos to backcountry.com for the excellent customer service throughout the buying (and returning) process! I will certainly buy from them again.
