My biggest issue with these shoes is that the sole is not a single molded piece. Instead, they have a separate inset piece for the heel and the part forward of the arch. The later is the real problem, as this began peeling away from the shoe.
The video clearly shows a single piece sole, so I can only assume the sole was redesigned (apparently for the worse) since it was made.
I should have returned these immediately, but due to reasons not relevant to this review, I decided to keep them and try re-gluing the inset pieces. That works for a while, but inevitably fails again. The issue seems to be that the flexing of the sole is the root cause, as I've had no issue so far with the insets in the heel of the soles.
I would advise avoiding not only these shoes, but ANY with this same sole design.
Another minor issue is the the gel heel insert inside one of the shoes separated out, but that was easily addressed by inserting a pair of padded insoles I already had.
It is sad that these shoes are so badly let down by their sole design, as they've been comfortable and I've had no issues with the uppers.
