Great shoe, poor quality
on May 29, 2014
I purchased these flip flops in the Virgin Islands. They were pricy at $94.00, but very comfortable and nice looking. I wear my "flaps" everyday here in the islands (just like many do in Hawaii). It is tropical just like Hawaii and they get wet once in awhile. After only 2 weeks they started to delaminate and fall apart. After 1 month I finally got back to the store that sold them to me. They immediate knew what I was talking about when I said they were delaminating.
I have used Rainbow leather sandals for years in the past. They would last a whole year or more with daily use in a wet environment. All for half the price.
So they give me all this paper work to send them back in. They had it all ready to go which should tell you something. In the paper work it says that they ARE NOT COVERED in the warranty for water damage. I am fairly certain that they started to delaminate because it had been very wet and rainy here. But that is nothing new in the tropics, its a wet place (Hawaii? duh!).
I have never had a product that was this relatively expensive fail so quickly. Oh, and did I mention we found out a friend of ours had bought the same sandal and immediately had the same problem.
If you are going to be wearing these in Arizona, you should be ok.
