Purchased these shoes approx. 3 years ago. I dont wear them every day average between two to three times per week. The overall shoe is very comfortable as it is a 'low profile" shoe. The uppers have a lot more wear left in them however the "Vibram" sole is wearing very thin in places especially the heel. It is a shame because I will have to stop wearing the shoes as the sole has worn out and the uppers are still in very good nick. I purchased this pair of Merells for in excess of $220.00 AUD.
