Sears - DieHard Men's 6 inch Nubuck Work Boot - Tan - Complaint
Sears Holdings Corporation - Complaint
GOLF MILL NILES, ILLINOIS -- If your thinking about purchasing DieHard Work Boots. Check out the reviews on their website you'll be shocked. I cannot believe they would put their name on such a inferior work boot.
DieHard Boots were in my opinion the best work boot's in the industry, comfortable, priced right and they went the distance and were Made in the America. I was disappointed to see they were being made in Korea. Still purchased them and they were a quality product, the leather uppers would wear out before the soles. I was very disappointed to see they were being Made in China. Still purchased them and that's when everything changed.
Bought 2 pairs at the same time. Wore one pair for over a year and retired them, took the other new pair out of the box. The soles of these were a little sticky. Wore them for a short period of time less than 3 months. The soft composite material that the sole was glued to literally crumble apart. I work for a home improvement company and I'm in customers homes, I had to pick up the pieces of my boots through out this house because they started to fall apart. (thank goodness for duck tape) I was embarrassed to say the least.
And to add insult to injury, I took the defective product and I sent it registered mail to S.e.a.r.s Holdings Corporation in Hoffman Estates, IL to the former CEO Mr Louis D’Ambrosio, they received it and I never got a response. Sear's 90 day warranty for shoes and boots is worthless. I've stopped purchasing foot wear Made in China because its the poorest of quality. High profit margins for them, poor quality boots and shoes for their customers.
I will not purchase new boots 2, 3 or 4 times a year that would be nuts.
It will be far less expensive to purchase American Made boots.
I purchased a pair of boots from Farm & Fleet back in 2009, though I didn't the way they looked. Dark brown with a black sole. I prefer the buck skin color and the lighter sole. They are Made in the U.S.A. and have lasted.
