I got a DC ceptor in the beginning of this season, and they fit my foot very well.
However, after a 2 days trip, I found many small holes on my sole.... thats very weird. I ask one of my friend who also wear DC boots and same dakine stomp, he said he also some some holes, but not so many like mine...
Just want to figure if other people also had similar problem here... I am thinking about return it, since it may be a quality issue of the boots itself.
Those DC's may not have an actual rubber sole. It may be that foam shit. It makes the boots a little lighter, but that shit sucks for durability and for hiking. Actually, looking at your pics again, that's exactly what it is. If you look at the black and green portions that are actual rubber they're not all chewed to shit like the white portion.
