    shimano m162 shoes

    Just wanted to see if other people are having the same problem with these shoes as I am. On the tongue piece attached to the rachet strap the black part of it keeps tearing. I've warrantied one pair and now it is happening to the second pair as well. These were purchased new in March.

    Sorry only just seen this post. Yes mine did that after about a year of use. I've gone back to specialized shoes as the fit me better anyway.

    That shoe has been replaced in the line by the m163 available now which is a lot different. So further warranties should be replaced by that shoe, I would think.
