WEll I did last night! MY lace got caught on the crank arm and my flame pattern Converse AllStars proceded to rip themselves in half! I was pissed to say the least. I managed to get home by tying my shoe onto my foot using the haggered laces. Thoes shoes made me go fast too!

Anyone else have similar horror storys??

I had a shoe rip apart on a MTB ride. On a rocky trail, I tried to put my foot down to catch myself before falling. Somehow I snagged a sharp edge on the top of a large rock with the the SPD cut-out on the bottom of the shoe, and seperated the sole from the uppers for the entire length of the outside of the shoe. I finished the ride, but my foot kept coming out of the side of the shoe - I had a cold wet foot by the end of the ride.
