    But to be real, all these companies do is give basic specs and colors to chinese mfgs. Pick out fabrics, midsole density, thickness, tread, and let the chinese bulk producer do rest.
    True dat. I just ordered three pairs of Cascadia 12s, on sale from REI. Saved $120. I've been wearing Cascadias since 2006. There were a couple of years when the quality deteriorated, but the 12s have been holding up okay for me.

    So if you see me on the AT next year wearing out of date shoes...
    If not NOW, then WHEN?

    This is true for some people here, but really, how many people on here have that many miles on their hiking resume?

    Quite a few. Thats not many miles for persons who have hiked for a few yrs. A couple hundred miles per year adds up after 5-10 yrs.

    And 1 long hike does the same

    What you say about a couple hundred miles per year for 5-10 years add up, but I my answer was directed at the OP original question. Not knowing about what to do with old shoes indicates to me that he/she doesn't hike that many miles.
