The reality is that for quality brand-name shoes, it's a wash. Once in my young and stupid days I used an off-brand set of bonded linings and the friction material came off the shoes, but that was 30+ years ago. Note that most disc pads are also bonded and have no problems. I recently did the brakes on my dually. The riveted linings had cracked between the rivets.

I think in both cases these are very unusual occurrences and I wouldn't hesitate to use either design.

The higher grade, more expensive brake shoes are usually riveted. In 40+ years repairing cars and light trucks I can't say I ever saw a quality, riveted shoe lose it's friction material. It does happen occasionally with bonded linings, albeit not very often.

In my years I've only ever had one shoe come un-bonded. It made a mess, but I'll still use them.

Riveted shoes are more reliable, but one of the nice things about bonded shoes is that they don't destroy the drums if you let them go too long

Any shoe will destroy the drum if you let it go too long. The bonded shoes just give you a few more miles until you hit metal-on-metal.

Do not go with store brands and you will be fine regardless riveted or bonded. Stay with Raybestos, Wagner or Bendix.
