Most disappointing shoes ever...
on 8 April 2014
I bought Dué™ Canvas Hibiscus a year ago and has been disappointed from the beginning.
Firstly the positive is that it is truly a great colour for Spring and looks amazing...
but the positive stops at the looks...
I'm a true size EU 36, or typically UK 4; the sizes on their website was UK3/36 which I ordered.
It was still too big on me by at least 1 size, but that's the smallest size on offer so I kept the shoes.
Next it was so uncomfortable, the canvas was so hard within minutes of walking the back of my ankle was blistered and bleeding, and of course by that time I couldn't return the shoes anymore.
It doesn't end there... after couple times of wearing... my feet smells horribly everytime I wear the shoes...
Why I'm posting after a year of suffering? Because it doesn't end there.
After limited time of wearing this pair (solution to all the above problem is heavy anti-smell insole and bandage before wearing..) the heel of the shoes have cracked on both side, I'm assuming it doesn't do well in the wet weather as there are discoloration all around bottom of the heel. (mind you I only wore this to and from work which is a 20 min tube ride plus 5 minute walk to the office... and basically didn't wear them during winter as the colour were too bright)
So I paid £75 for a pair of shoes that have caused me nothing but pain, and it didn't even last!
I've heard so many good things about Fitflop but I will never ever buy another pair from this company again.
I don't normally write reviews and normally just accept small product deficiencies as being life.. but this pair is beyond the worst there could ever be.
