I have purchased about 8 pairs of these over the last 3 years. 3 years shocking I would have given these a 5 star rating as they held up really well. Now .... 4 pairs in a row (even the replacement pairs from Keen, AMAZING warranty and customer service!) the Velcro has detached from the pull tab. At first I thought it was my sons fault as he can be rough on shoes, but then my daughter (who is meticulous) started having the same issue. I replaced both pairs, and then 2 weeks later, same problem. I ended up sewing the Velcro back on myself and it hasn't held for about 2 months now with no sign of coming off. The rest of the shoe is amazing! The soles basically don't wear out, even with daily strider use. I would still recommend these and buy them again, but I am now more weary rather than having blond trust in Keen as before. I would love if Keen would revert to their prior manufacturer (is they switched) or address the issue, as 5 pairs in a row to have this issue within 3-4 weeks of wear is rather annoying.
