Dr. Scholl's Complaint - Dr. Scholl's Casual Men's Dress Shoe
I have seen the commercials and NO, I am NOT "Gellin'". I purchased these shoes 3 weeks ago. I noticed the small Gel patch that is in the heel. They looked great and felt great when I tried them on. I wore them to work the next day and while walking the 30 feet or so from car to building, I realized I felt like the ball of my feet were walking on a metal grill. Most of my work envolves standing in place (not a lot of walking). By the end of the day my back and feet were killing me and the shoes looked like they were 10 years old. I got home and put my hand into the shoes and found that the ball area of the shoe is indeed a hard plastic grill with a piece of black felt over it. In less than a week, both shoes developed cracks the width of the sole at the ball. I examened the sole and saw it was about 1/16th of an inch thick or less and the plastic grill was above it.
I was always underthe impression that DrScholl's was the leader in foot care. After this, not only will I never by or recommend the shoe's, I will also never recommend ANY DrScholl's product. They obiously don't care about foot care anymore.
