I bought these shoes 8 weeks ago and loved them finding them comfortable and cool in hot weather but giving better protection than open-toed sandals. I was extremely disappointed when after only 8 weeks I noticed that the lycra material that joined to the back strap on the heel of one shoe had pulled away at the stitching and there was a small hole. I checked the other shoe and noticed that the same thing was happening to a lesser extent. There seems to be a design fault with the wrong material being used in the wrong place. The shoes had not been worn on heavy terrain and I had only done about 15 miles in them so the marketing slogans "Step into an all-around adventurer," and "Multi-sport outdoor shoe," seem inappropriate. It is obvious from my photo that the shoes look new but the other photos show the fault. The well- known store that I purchased them from agreed and gave me a full refund.
