Did Brooks change the mesh uppers on the latest trail running shoes? I have been buying the same type shoes from REI for at least 7 years. The latest model, purchased pre-pandemic, are wearing thin in the toe box and will soon break through. Picture attached. Very disappointed. JHBrooks shoe toe box wearing thin.

Hi @jharleyhammond - Thanks for reaching out, though we're sorry it's because you're not satisfied with your new trail runners.
Without knowing which shoe you have we can't say for certain, but Brooks has updated materials on various models of the Spring 2021 lineup. To better the fit of some of their shoes, a new material was chosen for the upper mesh.
Let us know if you have any additional questions and we'll be happy to help.
At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
