I ended up with stock of running shoes. Way more than I needed. So they end up sitting in storage, here and in New York. If I put on a pair of Nike’s within half a mile, the sole would have fallen off. These Helly Hansen shoes were stored for five years. I’ve been wearing them every day for weeks and they are incredible. I believe that Nike puts glue in their running shoes that after one year disintegrates. Helly Hansen clearly don’t. I will never buy another brand again. Hooray for Helly Hansen.
