Pull cord snapped after three-day's use, arrived a day late
on July 16, 2016
After my son's summer shoes were damaged in a bike accident (and having good luck with Teva shoes in the past), I ordered these with the expectation they'd be a quality shoe and arrive in two days with our Prime shipping. They came a day late. Not the worst problem in the world, but my son had no other play shoes. When they did come, he loved them. We bought them a half-size larger for room to grow, so he needs to use the cinch-cord to secure the shoe on his foot. Well, after three day's use, the cord on his right shoe (near the top left, toe end) snapped in two pieces! It appears the elastic band is glued together (just like an "ouchless" elastic hair tie). Seems to me, the best place to orient the connection point on the elastic band is before the plastic finger grip, which receives far less stress and pulling. Amazon wants me to ship them back, but he can't go without play shoes for another week while Amazon and Zappos work out a return. My son was able to tie the disconnected ends into a knot and move on. However, I'm disappointed to spend that kind of money and experience this kind of outcome. I hope the rest of the shoe preforms well!
