Dscottwrote a review of Patagonia Footwear Rover Approach Shoe - Men's on June 8, 2015
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I love the idea of this shoe, but it simply doesn't hold up to real world use. I've put about 25 miles on these, mostly on scrambles and hikes in the Alps, and they've already fallen apart. The sticky rubber portion of the sole is already delaminating from the rest of the sole. Entire lugs have been ripped off. The front part of the sole, near the rand, is peeling back. This is the kind of wear I expect after a very hard year of use, not after a few trips. This is absolutely not the quality I've come to expect from Patagonia.
Although I've only put a few miles on them, I'm listing my familiarity as "put it through the wringer" because apparently my current light usage is plenty to destroy these shoes.
