who the fuck cares, wear them and beat them to death. they'll look better.
but all rubber sole on new ones is probably a lot better than old staples + crepe.
I care, lot's of people care. Quality is a major issue with stuff. Okay, so they can't touch a well made dress shoe (Pierre Corthay, Gaziano & Girling and the like) nor should they because they are not the same, but they should be of much better quality then what you can find at the mall. Yes, stylish but also high quality.
