Are glued shoes ever acceptable? Do people here ever consider glued shoes or only Goodyear/ Blake construction.

Glued shoes are a mystery to me. I assume that my running shoes are glued (they certainly aren't stitched) and I have never had a pair come unglued in over 40 years of running. On the other hand, I've had glued boots come apart after only a couple of rounds of mowing the lawn. Go figure.
This is no mystery. Running shoes are designed for performance not cheapness; they are a quality product. Glued boots are designed for cheapness and that's it; they are not a quality product. Quality control on running shoes is assuredly much higher. In addition, they're designed from the ground up to work as glued shoes.
