Love AE, but anybody have an issue with the soles wearing down quickly? I've got four pairs of Graysons and the rubber heel goes really quickly, followed by a hole in the sole or the glue coming apart on the front of the toe between the bottom part of the sole, and the top part (thin layer). Maybe it's just the way I walk or the fact that I wear them eight to ten hours a day and walk everywhere, but I do wish the heel lasted longer than four-five months. Is that unusual?
You have 4 pairs of the same shoe? It really depends on how often you wear them, and as you said, the way you walk, long days and locations. It can be normal for heel to get worn down in that time, even though it is shorter than normal.
