I got these shoes in 2011 and used them fairly heavily in 2011 and 2012 ... but have barely touched them the past 2-3 years. They are light weight. Too light weight, it would seem. Another example of weight weenie cycling gear that will not stand up to robust use.
And so the Scott Pro shoes get added to the Positivo Espresso "Cycling Gear We Broke" page. Welcome to the Hall of Shame!

I am glad they broke at the beginning of today's 50km ride rather than once I was out on the weeklong Cycle Oregon. Fortunately, I had already ordered a pair of new Shimano mountain shoes with SPD cleats/pedals, for use on Cycle Oregon. If all goes well they will arrive Thursday US time.
