L.B. Evans, is Is Not The Same Anymore !!!!
on September 18, 2015
I've been wearing these very same slippers for eight years now. I'm on my fifth pair before I bought these. This would have been 6in 9 years.One thing that stayed the same, was the silly leather shoe string. My history with the leather cords is one of annoyance. They don't stay tied, and the way they are supposed to work, just ain't a happening thing. Pull hard enough to tighten the slipper, and you risk ripping the hole out. And, never, never remove one of the cords, because once you do, forget ever getting them threaded back in. OK, now that's normal and I've adapted over the years. I cut the cord, and use a square not in them. That will last almost a week, before it comes undone.
Now, this pair I just ordered must have staggered into the manufacturing line, designated for Wal-Mart Flip Flops, because that's about as well as this pair is made. The tread is thinner, and the inside lining is also much thinner. These are advertised as outdoor slippers. Well, go ahead and take your chances. Step on even a small rock,and you feel it on your foot. Simply put, these are not the same, as I bought from Zeppos. a couple of years ago. I've noticed that items selling for much less on Amazon, are sometimes made with less integrity, that the very same item bought say at a store in the mall. Perhaps, that's why it's so much less? I rate these a 2, because they are sitting in my closet, while I continue to use my old pair. And that my friends is sad because they are down right ugly. So bad, infact even my puppy, wont bother them, and she chews rocks. Best wishes, look around more. Michael T.
