The rubber on the bottom separated in several places shortly after purchasing these shoes. The humorous part of this story is that after E-mailing Teva to tell them about this they sent back a message telling me they would replace them if I returned them unused. See below:

I purchased a pair of Tamur shoes and did not keep the receipt. I have never had to after a couple of weeks. This was the worst pair of shoes I ever bought. The souls started separating after only a few months. Absolutely the worst pair of shoes I ever bought.
Here's what other sites are saying:
Sport and style, all wrapped in full-leather, molded comfort - get everything you could want in Teva's Tamur Shoe. Built with full-grain and suede leather, this stain-resistant, compression-molded, non-marking shoe goes from work to the trail and back again while providing support the entire way through.

Blending casual style with rugged performance, the Teva Tamur shoes transition easily from urban pursuits to good times on the trail. Supple full-grain and suede leather uppers are durable and naturally breathable; twin stripes add a bit of style. Leather is treated with Scotchguard™ to resist stains and repel light amounts of water. Polyester linings wick moisture and dry quickly, keeping feet comfortable. Molded footbeds feature Ortholite™ to inhibit odor and enhance comfort. Soft, compression-molded EVA midsoles with embedded Shoc Pads™ in heels supply all-day cushioning and shock absorption. Nylon plates provide stability and support on varying terrain. Nonmarking Spider XC® rubber outsoles offer traction on wet and dry surfaces.
