Bont A-One after one year

I bought this Bont A-One in March 2013, and this is what happened after 1 year of moderate use (2.5 hours of ride  per week).
Outer skin microfiber upper is made from soft material. Decals and black lines at the heel-cap and straps are easily  delaminated. I have to constantly reapply the black lines with permanent ink marker whenever I clean the shoes

Bont A-One damaged outer skin
The medial part of shoes show abrasion and exposed the white inner material. Probably due to contact with crank arm. Compare with my cheaper  Shimano R132 - (road shoes with carbon sole) that I bought in Jun 2011, this expensive Bont worn out faster.The only positive thing about this shoes are very stiff sole and light in weight My next cycling shoes will be from another brand
Nearly 3 years Shimano R132 are tough, show no damaged at outer skin
 Outer skin  colour touch up repair - using UHU mufti-purpose glue, and yellow DecoColor & black Artline permanent marker pen

Masa mula masuk Spg.Sempalit tadi ingatkan sikit je jalan repair...rupanya sampai ke Spg.Krau1 habis kena korek. PEINGATAN: Siapa yg nak training Bukit Krau1, sila start dari jalan utama (UiTM)
