Just wondering, how long and what amount of wear it took for this to happen ?
About 8 wears in a span of 2 years, each wear consisting of about 2 hours.

I've had my british shoes for 5 years, with WAAAY more wear time, and they still look GREAT, no cracks or anything.

J fitzpatrick shoes are beautiful looking but in my experience they are not durable, I own other brands such as trickers, cheaney, gaziano girling and alfred sargent and they still look pretty much as new after years of use, now I am no shoe expert but the "cracks" from the photographs below I haven't seen them in the other brands I mentioned.

That's not been my experience at all.

I have pairs from 2013 that I still wear regularly now, and which ook great.

Your's look like they need a resole in any case - and whilst I don't know you and have no real reason to disbelieve you - they look more worn that one would expect for 8 wears. Incidentally, what model are these?

And is that a ridged heel/sole?
