Upper/lower stitching ripped from soft rubber sole after ~1.5 years
on September 3, 2014
I try to buy decent shoes so they will last me a few years. I bought these in January of 2013 from amazon based upon the Clarks brand name. They took a couple weeks to break in.
Around ~3+ months ago, the leather lower stitching started ripping away from the sole and around the same time, the lace ripped. The leather upper/lower are still in great condition (I used sno-seal).
These are my daily shoes - mostly for work and casual with occasional trip to NYC. I live in southern california so mostly driving and not walking. I have never gone hiking in them nor abused them (imo).
Another con is that the nice looking rubber will turn gray/black from extended use and exposure to dirt and asphalt.
These shoes are comfortable but lasted less than 1.5 years - perhaps I'm cheap and want a shoe to last longer than that?
I personally would not buy these shoes again.
I'll try to post a couple pics.
