This shoe has a defect
First off, this is a great, great shoe, by a great, great shoe company.
They are comfortable for running in the wet, and they actually keep your feet dry.
The problem is, they have a defect, which makes the shoe a ticking bomb.
There is a grey plastic eyelet at the top of the show, and it is stitched on in such a way that it can be snapped off where it is stitched. Once it breaks, it is not possible to properly lace the shoe. I babied mine, only wore them when it was wet, and I got much less use out of them than I would expect for a 120 dollar shoe when one of the plastic eyeles snapped off unexpectedly during a lace up.
