    It was torn abit at that part the first time so got someone to stitch it for me and the stitch was done through the little holes on the side so now it got bigger. I noticed that Dinkalot has the same problem too with his SHB-99MX. But its kinda a waste if i didnt fixed it, because i wore it like 10-20 times but bought it last year.Well, if i cant get it fixed gonna be broke again with i buy a SHB-100, and lets hope its tougher than SHB-99MX.

    Anyone with any idea to fix it ?

    I would try to glue a piece of leather on the cut, before you buy a new pair, try it...

    I had the exact same problem with the SHB-92. It turns out the sizing of the shoes wasn't correct for my feet, at about 0.5 cm too large. Also, incorrect footwork also contribute to the rupture of the shoes.

    exactly the same thing happened to my 99s. i had them sewn by a shoe repair store but after a few games, the hole just got bigger. i have friends who own 99s and they have the same problem. i now use shb 90MX. no problems so far but i can see that the seam between the leather upper and the sole is starting to come apart on the outer part of my left shoe near my toes. :mad:

    mine also have similar damage. But I havent heard from those who own a 99 limited if they have the same problem. I also bought the shb 90mx as a replacement. It doesnt give me any problems so far.

    oh no! i have a feeling my shb90s would soon be like yours. i can already see the leather upper coming apart from the rubber sole on that same area of the shoe, but mine happens to be on the left pair. first, it was my shb99s that tore apart like jas1121's. had it sown but hole just bigger after several games.:(
    your new sotx shoes looks nice. how does it compare to the shb90s?

    it's not too bad. very comfortable!

    but all shoes are the same really, dependant on material of course. i play and train 5-6 days a week. the shb-90 went through a lot of wear and tear. it lasted me 7 months. we'll see how long this sotx sk-500 lasts.
