I've bought those shoes long time ago. They are great. Very comfortable, light and there was no problem what so ever. After they became old I bought another pair of the same shoes thinking there will be no problem. I bought them around 10 months ago. After 3 or so months I noticed a lines on both shoes going across where the shoe bends, thought nothing of it as I thought its a dirt or something. Well after another week I noticed that the lines were a broken leather. Now the shoes have holes where the lines were on the beginning. The only difference between the shoes I bought before and these ones is the place where they were made. Unfortunately I can't remember where they were made, but I remember that they were made in Thailand or somewhere close there. The one I had a problem with were made in Bangladesh. This was the only difference. Overall great shoes if only they could be made in a place where a quality standards are better then in BANGLADESH.
