worn sparingly. the rubber remains soft & flexible & does show minor yellowing & dryness at the heel. there is zero separation between rubber & uppers however there is considerable & widespread stree cracking from crush injury. there is separation/splitting of the rubber where the 1st foxing meets the midsole almost consistent across both pairs. the right shoe is worse with siginificant splitting. this results in less structural reinforcement however it is uncretain whether this will continue or impair general use? possible re-glue at deep cuts could rescue things however im confident the worst of the damage is done & they should hold up to normal wear. the box has 1 split down the top length. wear at own risk.
