Comments: I love the great fit, wide toe box and durable outsole. But I was greatly disappointed to notice tears on the upper mesh at both sides of the toe cap after 250 miles. And because material of the upper is so flimsy, the shoe is tearing apart fast with each run. What a shame that durability of the upper material cant match the durability of the outsole.
