When living in England I purchased Hush Puppies over a number of years and always found them good value and extremely comfortable. I was therefore extremely disappointed to receive these and thought them inferior, not only to Hush Puppies, but to many other make of boots and shoes. They are poorly finished and, in my opinion, fall far short of the descriptive photograph.
There is virtually no support in the sides of the boots and on opening the parcel I found both boots had the appearance of being previously worn; the toe and heel part of the boot being smooth as if scuffed in considerable wear. Of course they had not been worn, it was simply the poor finish. half an hour with a wire brush brought up the nap of the "so called" suede but boots were nonetheless not up to the standard I come to expect from such a reputable firm. I notice they are made in China, where presumably their idea of dark brown differs from mine; these are so dark as to nearly indistinguishable from black. I would have returned them but for the extremely high cost of postage.They are thrown into the bottom of my wardrobe, totally unsatisfactory.
