Comments: I absolutely love this shoe as far as the ride. It is low profile, gives that close to the trail feel, has amazing grip on rocks and loose dirt as well as hard packed trails, and drains water like nobody's business. However, Scott has yet to figure out how to make an upper that lasts. I had problems with the previous model where the upper would tear slightly on the outer layer but did not tear all the way through. The 2.0 model upper completely blew out on the sides with less than 200 miles on the shoe (on two different pairs)! It's unfortunate because this is otherwise a great shoe, but the cost of the shoe and the fact that the upper is so poor (this has also happened to two other friends with the same model) has forced me to go back to Salomon.
