Coated Leather Scuff Resistant Riptape Fastening Shoes
Ordered for my son, who did not want "proper" school shoes. He says they are great, comfy and he will wear them.

Soles came away from top of shoe
I thought these looked quite sturdy when I ordered them online for my 12yr old son. Within a couple of weeks, I noticed that the stitching on the top was coming away and made them look quite scruffy very quickly but did not affect my son from wearing them. Then a few weeks later the soles of both shoes came away from the rest of the shoe as if they hadn't been attached properly in the first place. Very disappointed as I have bought better school shoes from other cheaper shops that lasted much longer!

Not up to the job
I bought these school shoes fully expecting them to last at least until the spring but they barely stood the course for the first half of term.
The uppers remained intact but the, as it turned out, thin weak soles wore through in an unacceptably short time. I did try to return them but was told it was fair wear and tear. Really? After 8 weeks?! They are not fit for purpose.

Lasted approximately 42 days
Bought for Sept 13 autumn term for my 6 year old son. Nearly returned them after one month when bits of the sole tread fell out as other reviewers have complained of but I did not have the opportunity to do so.
I eventually returned them after just 42 days of normal primary school wear when both shoes had the soles flapping off the main body of the shoe across several inches.
The shoes show no other real signs of wear, no scuffing , the straps and insides are good as new they just clearly have a quality problem relating to their soles and the attachment of sole to the shoe.
I have had a free replacement for another pair of the same. I hope I am wrong in suspecting the same thing will happen again but am keeping careful hold of the receipt incase it does. Would advise future buyers to do the same!
