Poor Quality. Shoe Falls Apart When Wet.
on March 22, 2015
I love everything about these shoes except the quality. I wear a 10.5 shoe and ordered these in size 10. They fit perfectly and are very comfortable until you get them wet. I wore these for a 4hr excursion on a recent trip to the Caribbean. I wore them for about 5 hours. At most, 2 of those hours were in and out of water, walking over boulders, swimming, nothing crazy.
After the shoes got wet, the insoles started to slip as other reviewers have mentioned. I also noticed the outer sole start to shred a bit on the edges. The inside seams also separated and whatever glue/material is in between the seams became a shredded mess of brown gluey paper-like stuff that was all over my feet and the inside of the shoes. The glue holding the insoles dissolved enough to let them start slipping and upon inspection, it looks like the only adhesive holding the insole down was a 2" strip of glue from a glue gun.
It's unfortunate I can't return these. Even at this price, I would expect more than 1 use out of them. I'm a 48 year old cruise ship vacationer, not some 22 year old adrenaline junkie putting these shoes through some insane terrain test.
