Quality Is Not Great
on November 29, 2007
I have worn AVIA shoes for a number of years. They seem to fit my feet like a glove and are extremely comfortable. They aren't readily available in stores, so I buy them online.
This pair is not so great. There is a decorative strip along the sole which ends in a little emblem on the inside arch of the shoe. Almost immediately, both of these emblems came loose and started to flap alongside. My family saw this and joked that they looked like curb-feelers.
I recently pulled them off as much as possible, cutting them at the end, so they wouldn't trip me up. That's how bad they were. One of them was like a loose shoelace.
I am a little disappointed with this pair, for this reason. They still feel good, and are comfortable, but to have parts of the shoe just start falling off, after only two weeks of wear, seems a little chintzy and off to me.
