Great shoe, two issues
on March 14, 2012
I've just purchased my third pair of these shoes in the last 5 years. I love the feel and look of the shoes, they are as comfortable as anything I've ever worn in this category
My only critiques of the shoe are that like others have said, the sole wears down quickly. When I had a job that required a lot of walking, these shoes barely lasted a year. Now that I'm at a desk job, they last between 2-3 years. That said, it is not stopping me from investing in a new pair as soon as I feel the support go out.
Secondly, the metal eyelets at the top of the laces wear down the shoelace over time. The laces that come with the shoe don't last too long, 5-6 months top, but the cheap pair of 27" kiwi laces last a year or more. Of course, it may just be me pulling them too tight, but it has been an issue for me.
