I'm curious, what defines failure of a pair of shoes that requires replacement? Of all the comments about "4-6 pairs ...," or similar, nobody says why they needed a replacement. Do the soles wear out? Do the sides split? Do they get dirty? Do they get wet and shrink? Does the dog chew them? Well, j/k about the dog. But, there has to be some good reasons why so many pairs of shoes for one year. As somebody who gets at least one full year of service, I'm just wondering why other shoes are replaced so often.
well, for me it's usually the sole that goes.
a walkbehind, an edger then grabbing the trimmer and using the blower adds the miles in hurry.
My feet let me know when the street and turf are getting too close.
I've tried the $$ shoes, they wear out almost as fast.
If someone wants to demo me a pair that will go 2 seasons I'll pay the shipping. lol
