foil already peeling, second pair of these - quality not what it was with these shoes. disappointed
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 16 August 2021
This is my second pair of SUPERGA in exactly the same style, same colour. I bought my first pair about 9 years ago to wear at work. I had a very active job massaging, walking a lot and going up and down stairs all day. Eventually they fell apart as you'd expect I wore them to death; I was still wearing them with holes in because I loved them so much about 4 years after I bought them, they were so good to me.
I decided to get a new pair recently for a new job where closed toe flat shoes are required. I've been wearing them for work and for a few walks round the park for about 6 weeks now. I noticed yesterday that the foil is already peeling on the sides and the sole is coming away from the upper in several spots. In my old pair, this never happened, I am pretty certain that they once used a different material, something similar to patent leather or lampar for the shiny effect, but now they are using a cheap foil that has come away very quickly, they look old already. No chance Ill be wearing these for years to come.
Such a shame when a brand relies on their name instead of good materials & quality to carry themselves. The same has happened with Doc Martens, luckily I have my pair from over 10 years ago when they made them well, still going strong, but my partner had a pair in the last could of years that didn't last even a year. I don't know why companies do this, such a shame. Its not like they are passing on savings to the customer.
I'm going to try and get my money back, even though I have been wearing them longer than a month, don't think its acceptable really.
Perhaps its a different case altogether with the fabric/canvas topper, but I don't know if id bother to find out.
