Low Durability in Comparison to the Original
on February 28, 2015
I'd like to take this opportunity to complain about the shoddy quality of the Trail Glove 2 men's shoe. I purchased a pair in November of 2014, after having previously owned two pairs of the original Trail Glove shoes, one purchased in early 2011, and another purchased in late 2012, both of which lasted well over two years without a tear or damage to the fabric upper of the shoe. This, despite having used them in strenuous activity, including several hundred miles of hiking in the Adirondacks and Vermont. I was optimistic when I purchased the Trail Glove 2, believing that the quality of the shoe would not suffer, and only improvements would be made. My first disappointment was that they no longer were available in black, but in a silver-black fade. Since November, I have not used these shoes for more than daily wear and short daily jogs on a treadmill. Despite this, one of the shoes is showing significant wear to the fabric upper. The fabric is simply pulling apart in several locations. I've attached a picture of the damage to the shoe for your benefit.
