I don't think it's a bobcat -- different heel counters, heel height, etc.
Wow, yeah that's a drag for sure. Mine have not had anything like that. It's really a shame - with the problems with the halfsole and now with the 269, options are getting pretty limited.
 I only saw spurs61's post after I posted my own experience of the 269s -- looks like he's had less of a good experience. So far mine have not hardly worn at all (after a year) and none of the treads have developed gaps as he describes with his, so it may be a case of Your Mileage May Vary...

 Afraid I don't know enough to explain, but I do remember someone else explaining White's construction, that it was not strictly stitch down.  I can't say for sure.  But here some comparison pics of White's and Viberg, and you can see the difference:  White's has some extra layer (a proper welt?) between the uppers and the midsole, whereas Vibergs are "stiched" directly "down" on the midsole.  And of course the Vibergs are much cleaner construction.  (Though I love my...
