I've had 3 pairs of Shures in the last 5 years or so - I love the mid-heavy sound, but damnit those cables are shit. Every single pair has had cable cracking issues. Now, I run a lot (circa 35-40km a week), and sweat is not kind to any cables, but I have definitely found other brands (eg westone) last longer with the cables etc. When you consider that Shure is already expensive because of the brand name, it's pretty irritating.
