User Review: Garmont Men's Eclipse XCR
Materials: leather and gore -ex
Use: day hikes
Break-in Period: 1 mo
Weight: 175 lbs
Price Paid: $139
Initially I was quite taken by this shoe - it fit from the start and was well suited to day hiking. After one year of use, however, the soles fell off and there is no way of replacing it. Garmont told me that they could not supply new soles, and that a repair in any case would cost more than a new pair.
THIS IS A VERY POORLY DESIGNED SHOE THAT IS NOT DURABLE. DO NOT BUY THIS SHOE IF YOU WANT TO USE IT FOR LONGER THAN ONE YEAR.
