Found these an excellent fit and very comfortable. However, whilst they have been worn extensively through the winter it is disappointing that the fabric parts at the front and side have deteriorated badly and worn through. All other component parts have worn well. Perhaps for a walking boot, the wrong material has been used.Brand's answer :
I am sorry to hear that you have had issues with the Forclaz 500 helium hiking shoes. I have exactly the same pair and I pretty much wear them every day (admittedly round work for about 5 miles a day and use them out and about also) and I have not had any problems with them. I have found them to be a comfortable and reliable pair of shoes.
If you pop back in to your local store and you can either get them replaced or get a refund. I am hoping that this is a one off experience and would recommend giving them another go.

I bought these over a pair of boots as they are more suited to the type of walking that I am doing. On the foot they feel like a beefy trail running shoe, as you might expect.
I've yet to give them a serious test but after a couple of months of use they still look virtually brand new so I expect them to be tough.
The lacing system is secure and they are pretty weatherproof, despite not having a waterproof membrane. As a result they can get quite warm.
