Depends on what your idea of "shape" is, I guess.

I managed to trash one of mine in a little 10 mph tumble on ice, and try as I might I couldn't get them to properly close again. Those curves are really hard to get right, and the edges crack with too much hammering.

Still like them enough that I bought a new one. They're fairly narrow on the bike for the amount of space they give. Briefly considered getting some Daerr boxes, but they were too wide, didn't fit with my rack/seat.
