Never had an issue with a Keen warranty... I'd suspect he threw away his receipt.

Its all OAT.

Some folks drag their back foot along the ground on their toe as they release/follow through. I lift mine in the air, so no dragging, and my shoes last. Some baseball pitchers would drag their back leg as well, I never did that either. My shoes would last a full season, some teammates would go through 2-3 pairs a year due to toe drag. We were all good pitchers, so it's just a different style I guess.

Takes me back to "Days of Thunder" when Cole trickle does the tire test. Does good both ways, but one way tears up his tires, and one way doesn't....I couldn't afford new shoes every 2 months, so I learned how to be successful and to save my shoes also.

I think one of the biggest problems with DeLa's is they never got the sizing/fit right on these shoes.

IMO, the Dela's/MILO/Wasatch Crest were a tad too heavy and bulky. They were tanks. The non-water proof Wasatch's were a little better. If they can design something sporty looking, but not as big, I'd buy some. Might be easier said than done.

I went with Targhee IIs when I won a pair from DGPlanet.tv for the same reason. I like the mid-height boot because it keep my feet dry in soggy areas on the courses around here. The tread on my first pair started coming apart after 3 months. I got a second pair through warranty and they're doing the same thing. I think I'll keep gluing them back together and hope something better it available in another year.

Same thing happened to me on the targhee's. The smaller pointed edges of the sole that wrap up the sides of the shoe started coming off very quickly. Look for a pair that does not have that sole design. Gypsum's are what I wear. The soles are very firmly seated on the shoe.
