View Full Discussion BUYER BEWARE: These shoes have quality control issues and designed with a big flaw. Basically at the heel on both my shoes, the fabric is separated and ripped from the sole exposing the inner cushion and foam material. This has happened on exactly the same spot for both shoes!! Due to the poor fabric but also the added heel cup, each and every one of these shoes will eventually have the same problem. As you walk, due to the narrow heel the fabric will continue to pull and stretch away from the back sole eventually ending up in a tear. See image below. They really need to discontinue this model and/or go back to the drawing board to fix this issue.
Anyhow, Massdrop has informed me that it goes beyond their normal warranty coverage and will not take them back. That's understandable but for a shoe that was purchased and worn for less than 6 months shows really bad quality control. It would be great at the very least if Massdrop could help reach out the manufacturer to see if they can do something about this. Vlado is no where to be found after several of my emails to them.
Lesson learned. Stick to your classic converse or vans. At the very least you will know the shoes will last for more than 6 months than this "stylish" garbage.
I can confirm that this ALSO happens on the sides of the shoes. The fabric has separated from the lining and it's just an open gap. Although, I could do with super glue I just wished they lasted longer (barely 6 months) because they're great looking shoes!
Completely agree. Shoes look nice and clean. Super stylish, but design is flawed. I wish Massdrop or Vlado would do something about this as we wasted $45 for a pair of shoes that don't last more than a few months.
Thanks so much, was about to buy a pair before i saw this post.
