Stylish shoes, but poor quality

I purchased 4 pairs of Catwalk shoes during the summer sales (June-July 2009), all from the two Lifestyle store's outlets in Bangalore. One pair of ballet flats, and three pairs of high, wedge-heeled espadrilles. Since the shoes were purchased on sale, they were all priced at upto 60% off, so that each pair was INR 400 to 500. The original prices were 1200/- (for the wedges) and 800/- for the flats. Despite their sturdy looks, the shoes are in fact of a remarkably poor quality.


The wedge heels, which are expected to give up to a year of wear, lasted me barely 3 months, and that too with sporadic wear. Closer investigation shows that this company uses a shoe base (heel + sole ) made of some cheap plastic, which cracks easily under the slightest stress. Since the soles are cast in one piece with the heel, it is impossible to replace or even repair them. Furthermore, the upper is attached to the sole by the weakest of adhesives, allowing it to become unglued very easily. Overall, these shoes, while being fashionable, are truely substandard indeed, being worth not even the sales price.


The flats have fared little better. There is no arch support, making them uncomfortable to wear, and the sole is once again of such a ghastly quality that it turned to shreds within 4 months of wear. In conclusion, Catwalk shoes are just not worth the price. Save your money, and buy just one pair which will last much longer -- from a different company!
