this shoe is garbage
Well, I purchashed these shoes thinking that north face quality would be put into these shoes so I ordered two pair. One I sent to where I am stationed in Iraq the other to my home state side to wear on leave. I slipped on the pair here in iraq after looking for a pair of shoes that would hold up against the gravel/rocks around my patrol base when I go running. Quickly the cable system became lose not holding my feet where they needed to be, after that the sole seemed to just fade away. They faded away so bad that two holes appeared in the bottom of my shoes (both in identical spots) The top part where the cable tightens the most ripped. These shoes are crap and would never buy them again. Now you may be thinking that this is just my pair of shoes but you are wrong a buddy of mine bought the same shoes and he also has had all the same problems.
