I want to give a shout out to Chota. I had a pair of STL?s that I really liked but on a recent three-day trip they just came apart with the soles coming off both shoes. I took a picture of them and emailed it to Chota asking if I could get them repaired. They asked me to return them. Instead or repairing they sent me a new pair. That is great customer service and I appreciate it.
