I’m always on the lookout for a bargain, and this week l decided to try and find a decent pair of Comfortable Summer Shoes. Not very easy, as l have very swollen feet, and l normally by the extra wide fittings from retailers such as ‘Cosyfeet’ or Widerfit Shoes online store.
I found a pair of White leather Sandals that l liked with an open toe and full heal, very flat and extremely roomy due to the Velcro extension straps, but the online store price was a chunk more than l would usually pay when l manage to buy out of one of their sales. With Postage, and the strap extensions, this would be around £75.
I decided to take a look on EBay in case anyone was selling something similar, to save a bit of cash, and found the same Sandals for £24.95. I was very pleased with myself, and ordered them. Bearing in mind that l have already bought this brand many times before, l am aware of their Logos, trade mark details, and quality.
The Sandals that arrived today had obviously come from a private seller, not a company, the detailing and Logos were slightly different, the sole was much thinner and lighter, the linings say ‘Cosyfeel’ not ‘Cosyfeet’ and the leather is much thinner than usual. However, they do fit well!
I’m unsure what to do about the situation, inform the Genuine Company for comments? Keep them and use them, realising ‘You only get what you pay for’? Or report my findings to Trading standards?
The seller is still trading these shoes, in various styles and sizes, so is obviously a business, and not just someone trying to sell on a random pair of new unwanted shoes!
