Still posting my old complaints up – this is from where I bought some leaky shoes from Clarks in autumn 2014:
I have only had these shoes for 7 weeks and already the stitching on the top is coming loose and when it rains my feet get wet.
If I lived in Dubai this would be fine, but with medium-long range models suggesting an unsettled first half to winter, I am going to regularly have wet feet.
Perhaps even worse, my blue socks with stars on now have a brown sheen from the bottom of my wet shoes.
I was under the impression that Clarks were supposed to be good quality but clearly not.
Too late to return them within the 28 days so now I am stuck with crap shoes and wet feet.

The store were not keen to accept a refund but eventually were persuaded to do so.
