After many years a loyal Abeo brand customer for dress shoes, I bought Abeo athletic shoes that wore a hole through the shoe in less than a year, errands only and walking the dog in suburbia, only noticed because the Abeo insert (which had filled the hole becoming the sole) also wore through. Clearly inferior quality material in the sole since I've had other brand athletic shoes that last for 3-5 years or more! Walking Company Customer Service online refused to acknowledge the quality issue even with pictures sent, and denied my request for replacement of the (overpriced) inserts and a discount on a different athletic shoe! Goodbye Abeo and Walking Company. Headed back to Sketchers, never had a problem with those shoes.
