My lightly worn 608s first delaminated (both) around the outside of the soles between the arch and heel. I glued them with Gorilla Glue, and that worked for a few months. Then I found that the center, not the edges of one shoe has delaminated in the same region. By the time I noticed, some of the rubber ridges and tracks had been broken off, probably from catching and being bent back when I walked. I am glueing that area, but there is no way to repair the lost rubber.
The uppers of these shoes look almost like new. Without the delamination they would have been good for a very long time.
By the way, I do not use these shoes for running or jogging...just for normal walking around wear.
Can anyone tell me if this happens in the V4's??? It is unacceptable.
