My husband has had a rash of bad luck with his Taupe/green KSOs. He's had 2 defective pairs in under a month. The first pair had the seams at the top of the ankle come apart and his second pair had the seams come apart along the vertical seam on top of his foot (wear the mesh meets the fabric). It's sad.
Fortunately, Whole Earth Provisions has been wonderful.
They've made the exchanges with no problems and are shipping in another pair of KSOs for him. He wears 43s in KSOs and the taupe/green fit over his high arches feet. He tried a 43 black KSO and couldn't get his foot in at all. Is there a difference in sizes between colors? ???
