Ends of bows have completely frayed and the black pair have a chunk taken out of them

For £50 I would expect better tbh. Where did ou hit them?

LadyPenelopeCantDance · 02/07/2017 13:47

Not great but I don't think they are designed for daily work wear as sole is too thin.

CauliflowerSqueeze · 02/07/2017 13:51

They should last longer than 10 hours ffs!!!

Busybee233 · 02/07/2017 13:56

Any tips of what I can say tomorrow I'm a really nervous person and no I will just clam up

Well, "I bought these from Office Shoes and wore them to work. Wearing them to work is what they should be suitable for, and they are supposed to be fit for purpose and last a reasonable amount of time. Each pair has only been worn for one day and they are faulty. I'd like a refund please."

How about something like that?

Yeah shoes seem to go in no time. I bought ankle boots from Nine West RRP £90. After 6 weeks, the sole came away from the boot on one foot, complained and they refunded the cost.

Just be honest! 'I wore these to work yesterday, not very active as mostly desk work and have noticed all this damage - not really acceptable for a shoe worn for one 10 hour work day' if they question it then just follow with 'they cost me a bit of money and it's the whole reason I came here for good quality shoes and I haven't got that'

Return them and get your money back.

Slightly off-topic, but I feel compelled to say this:
And make sure you replace them with shoes that have a better sole/heel. I made the mistake of wearing shoes like them and developed plantar fasciitis. The physio said those ballet flats are terrible shoes to wear and that's what caused my pain. It's agony and a year later I still get pain from walking. I've got myself some ballet flats that have a good sole and cushioning. Honestly, I wish I knew how much damage those type of shoes can do to your feet.

Do you have the receipt and how long ago did you buy them.

RainbowPastel · 02/07/2017 14:20

You have obviously caught the black pair on something. A chunk wouldn't just fall off like that.

PeaFaceMcgee · 02/07/2017 14:21

It's really bad form to comment on someone's spelling and grammar. It's patronising and snide. Bee was perfectly clear.

ExplodedCloud · 02/07/2017 14:23

They don't look like they're particularly sturdy for work wear but any pair of shoes should last longer than one day. You'd expect a lot more for £50!

It's really bad form to comment on someone's spelling and grammar.

Not if they're likely to be making a formal complaint, its not. It is being helpful.

And its accept, not except.
