has anyone experienced the crepe soles hardening over time? I bought my Roys last August and the soles were soft and cush. Wore them up until the snow started flying and cleaned them up and shelved them. Broke them out for the first time today and wore them to work and the crepe soles are much harder then they used to be and no longer have that soft rubbery feel to them. I loved the crepe when it was new but if it does this after less then a year maybe I need to rethink that.
I have experienced this. Just another reason why I hate Alden's crepe sole.
