I purchased a pair of these about 3 weeks ago. When I tried them on they were very comfortable so I purchased these shoes. Now the heal inside of the shoe is completely breaking down. I should have known this would happen since they are made outside of the USA. I had been wearing New Balance, made in the USA, which cost the same, yet last for at least 14 -18 months on average.
Unless you like to by new shoes monthly, I would stay clear of this shoe!
I am about 280lb and these are some of the worst shoes I've ever had. About a month into owning them the insole feels like it has holes under it. I can't say I would trust these shoes enough to actually go hiking in them.
