Amazing Shoes Overall Product Rating (5 out of 5) 5/10/2013 By EdmondOkie I just bought my third pair of these shoes in the last 5 years. The pair I bought 5 years ago finally wore out after being worn almost every day during that time. (The second pair I bought about two years ago were accidentally destroyed soon after I bought them by an encounter with fresh asphalt.) I'm a big, heavy guy. That these shoes withstood over 4 years of nearly daily wear - in all conditions, including minor hiking and such - is absolutely remarkable. Beyond that, these shoes don't leave me with aches or pain in my knees, hips or back like other shoes can. The top of the heel in the back started coming apart a few months ago, then the gel pad in the left shoe shifted, and finally last week part of the right sole came loose. This prompted me to turn the shoes upside down, and I saw that the soles were starting to wear through to the material underneath in some spots. I've never had a pair of shoes last this long. I feel like I more than got my money's worth. The fact that they're so comfortable is a bonus. Hush Puppie's Reply: That is great your first pair lasted so long after so much wear! We are happy that the gel pad has offered great comfort for you and they are well worth the price. Thank you this great review.
