Ah, ok. I've had mine for 2 months now and I actually slipped and fell with them yesterday on a street corner. The pavement was dry but very smooth and I was just crossing the street - I'm still not sure what happened. I'm probably going to get them topy'd soon.
Interesting to know if anyone else has had a similar issue.
My boots are currently at my cobbler getting Vibram low profile half soles. My wingtips and loafer were worn as is.
