Well I received my replacement Bradley's last night, the first order was placed Dec. 22. The right shoe bows (flares) slightly but I could live with it if I had to. On my walnut shell Strands which I am wearing today the right shoe has a little bit of bowing to it. The left shoe of the Bradley replacement however bows even more than the original pair did. Just got a shipping label emailed to me to return to them. Hope it doesn't take another 3 months for the next pair but starting to wonder about the current run and it is tempting to give up on the Bradley's altogether. But I really do like the shoe itself.
