Specialized is going to get a very unhappy email from me.
You might recall that I bought these shoes in June of this year. They are less than three months old.
I don’t walk on the toes or otherwise mistreat them. The stitching on the left shoe came apart first. The right shoe has followed in recent days.
Looks like a design defect to me. I don’t think a replacement pair is an unreasonable expectation. If those come apart we’ll just have to deal with that when it happens.
