Nike Bandolier II

Use: Dayhikes, trails
Break-in Period: Forever
Price Paid: €40
These shoes are useless. The heel fabric wore away after one month and I have had rubbing and blisters ever since from the plastic underneath. This is a shame as the shoe is very comfortable otherwise. As it stands however, the shoes are useless as the rubbing cannot be stopped without external padding.
Here's what other sites are saying:
While taking you down the trail less traveled, the ankle-height Nike Men's Bandolier II provides your foot a premium protection and comfort cushion to last from sunrise to sunset. Comprised of leather stitched with mesh textile, the upper gives outstanding lightweight support, and a precise fit on your dawn patrol start. A full-length phylon midsole provides enduring cushion as you take in the first morning light. Heel and toe bumpers protect against foot bumps in the dark, while a supportive shank between the midsole and outsole protects against stone bruising and minimizes foot fatigue. The Nike All-Trac Trail outsole offers exceptional traction on a variety of terrain surfaces on the way to a stellar Buena Vista sunset.
