After 18 months of, once a week use (also use spds some of the time) one of the soles on my Freeriders is splitting across the ball of the foot.
Now to me this feels like a bit of a short lifespan. I'd say 2-3 years would be an acceptable minimum for a £70 pair of shoes. Thoughts...?
Sadly they were bought s/hand (but unused) off the classifieds, so no comeback with 5:10. Thing is, I really like riding in them - grippy and comfy, so I'm quite likely to end up shelling out for another pair, unless anyone can convince me that the Shimano option is wonderful (tried Tevas, didn't like them - not grippy enough)?
