Very poor quality
on July 28, 2014
I had hopes for this shoe. I have had experience with Madden boots in the past and it is hit or miss with the quality lately. I like the look of the shoe and the feel is not bad. It could use a bit more cushion in the insole, but that could be rectified with a decent insert.
My issue is with the durability. This shoe did not even last 3 months. Like another customer, the metal lace hooks at the top were easily ripped off. But honestly, that would not be a problem if the sole managed to stay attached. The separation began near where the shoe bends as you step. Later the sole started separating at the heel of my left shoe. It quickly deteriorated until almost the whole sole detached. I would like to be clear; this is under what I consider light use. I wear these out and about, mostly on pavement. I have never owned a shoe with so little durability. As I stated, after only 3 months of use they are completely worthless. I may try to reattach the sole since they still look new.
If you are buying these for the looks, and you only plan on wearing them once a month, you should be satisfied with your purchase.
