Comments: After many happy miles in a pair of Lone Peaks, I was excited to try the new Superior. The light weight and fit is, well, "superior". It seemed to be my all-time dream come true shoe. But, after less than 200 miles, the sidewall mesh on both shoes tore out. The soles still have miles of wear, but the upper durability is a big question mark. Not quite sure what the funky sidewall strings are for. Altra is replacing them. Don't know if it is a design problem or just this pair.
