after 2 years.....
these shoes are falling apart... riddled with holes... my feet are wet...they have no grip because the soles are totally worn out and starting to peel off....... after 2 years of year'round abuse. 2 years! these are undoubtably the best shoes i've ever owned. I'm sad to see them go. after trail running every season in them, countless hikes, wearing them everyday to work, and putting my feet up at the bar as I order a drink....these shoes have done it all.... and survived. I typically burn through shoes within 7 months. Not these ones (and not their sibling..the mid-tops..but thats for another time). These shoes are my favorite. nice and grippy, waterproof, and breathable enough for the murky new england july and august. Enjoy! I'm off to find another pair.
