Followers of this blog may recall my post 2 years ago concerning quality problems with expensive shoes made by Danish manufacturer Ecco.
Unfortunately I bought 4 pairs of premium priced shoes before I realised that the soles fall apart if you don’t wear them regularly. Since my last post a pair of golf shoes has fallen apart whilst I was playing the 17th at Palmares and last week we were out with a friend when the sole on his shoes came to pieces in a restaurant. To his great embarrassment he left a trail of rubber throughout the restaurant and had to ask for plastic bags to cover his feet as it was raining outside.
It was fortunate that he did not have to walk home.
I was similarly lucky that the soles of my £100+ golf shoes disintegrated on the 17th hole so I only had to hobble one more hole.
It really is time that something was done about this company as we are far from alone with this problem as this link shows and, as mentioned previously, you can whistle for a refund.
Where are Trading Standards? What price the EU’s CE mark?
I’m afraid it will have to be down to People Power.
Boycott Ecco and tell your friends!
