As good as the last model?
I don't have these yet, but I've been wearing the previous model almost every day for the last two years and they've held up spectacularly. I can only imagine that these will last just as long. Sizing is a little to the larger size. I wear a 10 to 10 1/2 and my foot is quite wide, these in a size 45 are perfect. Can't wait to swap out the old pair for these.
