Donald Pliner Designer Shoes Complaint - Thin Soles on Designer Shoes
First I would like to know if anyone else have had problems with Donald Pliner shoes particularly the soles wearing out very quickly. Please share your stories because I have been told that this is how shoes are supposed to look like. None of my shoes I have ever bought has look like this shoes.
I purchased a pair of his shoes at a local Dept Store, I wore them all of 15 minutes outside, from the car to the bldg from the bldg to the car. When I got them home the soles around the outside of the pad was all worn down to the very paper lining with was light beige. So I decided first to try to return them because I was unhappy how the soles were looking and knew that I would have to replace the soles at least after a month. They refuse saying that this is how the designer makes his shoes with the thin soles. I wrote to the designer website, they say the same that the shoe is alright and nothing wrong with the soles.
The problem with all of my complaints is that I had spent almost $300 on 3 pairs of shoes that day at the Dept store. I felt as an unhappy customer they could have at least made an offer to compensate in some manner, whether it was to give me a reduction or let me exchange for another shoe with a thicker sole. The manager claimed that they couldn't send back the shoes to the designer for that reason. As if they don't have a way to replace their losses.
Anyway I have exhausted my efforts to be compensated but I just thought I would try and find out if there are any unhappy customers of Donald Pliner thin soles of his shoes.
