I purchased these last week.
I wore them ONCE for about four hours and indoors at that. The gold on them is coming off. It's sort of like a foil over plastic material. The threads are coming out and they just look NOT good after ONE four hour wear. I have had other sandals from them and this has not been the case. I emailed Torrid about the issue saying I wanted to return the shoes. They sent me a fed ex return label and said that they will inspect the shoes to see if it is a quality issue or if it is a wear and tear issue. I had to giggle. But I don't want to send the shoes back and wait however long for them to say it was a wear and tear issue (if you look at the bottoms you can't even tell they have been worn). So have you all ever returned something of bad quality? What about just taking it to the local Torrid, might that be better? Would they accept it there?
I also wanted to add, while I know that they are cheap shoes, I think they should last longer than one wear. I've bought similar things from Payless for the same price and wore them for about a year (not everyday of course but you get my drift :D).
Any advice would be appreciated.
