I've had these shoes less than a year and they're falling apart. They had holes in them after 6 months. I use them primarily for running/working out-I only run ~12 miles a week or so. Very comfortable but I expect my shoes to last longer.
Awesome short for riding in all types of situations. Its heavy duty construction provides excellent protection from the elements, and offers piece of mind from minor scraps and scratches. The shorts ability to stretch in certain areas makes this a perfect fit for DH and XC riding.
