I had the women's version of these shoes and within a couple months the layers on the toe box started peeling back. It only got worse. More recently in between year 1-2 these shoes got pretty wet on a couple rides and shrunk. It sucks because they were not cheap. Not very happy with these and not sure I would buy sidi shoes again, although my boyfriend has the more expensive dominator 5 and they have held up really well for him.
