Class Action Suit On Nike Air
I have more shoes than I need. I buy shoes on sale and keep them nice rotating them to keep them fresh. That means that some of my shoes may be 8 years old but look brand new. Nike Air shoes decide to fall apart when they are that old. They just rot. I've now had 6 pair with the Air Soles, visible and invisible, just fall apart.
I played golf yesterday with my Nike Airs that I hadn't worn in a couple of years. The Insole still has all the writing on it and the shoes have probably been worn 8 times, and mostly riding in a cart so very low mileage. They are bright white, but the soles are separating at the airbags. I had to take them off in the middle of playing with my son, for the first time in 2 years. You cannot glue them because the sole material is flaking off and disintegrating. Seems like all 6 pair have fallen apart in the last 3 years, and were purchased before that. All look great on the sole bottom, and the uppers but the pathetic construction allows the sole to separate at the top of the airbag around the heel for about 6 inches. So I am supposed to throw these otherwise perfect shoes away? Thanks
I won't fall to sending them into Nike to get them sent back to me with a "shove it" note attached. I will complain loudly and won't buy them anymore. Shox aren't any good either. No more, Nike. Take advantage of someone else with some kind of Michael Jordan status thing that rules their world. I want a shoe that I can count on to finish the game, not fall apart in the middle. NIKE, you need to read these problems and fix the problem. Either come up with a way to repair them, or yes give everyone a voucher for at least 50% off for a new pair. Mine fall apart with much more than 50% of the wear left, easily.
My Asics and Adidas don't do this crap. My son's Underarmour cleats did it, but I could glue the sole back on them. You can't glue, shoe goo, or repair crumbling foam rubber. That means your product is defective and the consumers should have a case for restitution!
