First topic, hoping I can get some help. I have a pair of AE Strands that are about 4 months old. They're in rotation with some other shoes, so they get worn only once a week at most.
After their latest wear this week, I noticed a hole had worn into the left sole in an odd place (pics below). The shoes are not well worn (you can even see the heels haven't worn out the "AE" in the rubber yet). It had rained earlier in the day when I wore these shoes out; could the moisture have had anything to do with it? For whatever reason this wear issue (as shown) is only in one shoe.
I'm assuming this happened because I did something wrong. I tree my shoes (cedar trees), keep them brushed down and polished, and store them dry.
I'm a complete noob when it comes to shoe care. I'm obviously going to get these resoled, but I'd prefer not to be resoling my shoes every 4 months. Any help and feedback on what I did wrong here would be greatly appreciated.
