I called Revolve and the only other pair they have in my size was returned for similar reasons. They told me that they can't request another pair for me because they already have a (defective) pair in stock. They offered to take 10% off of the price I paid if i keep them, which amounts to about $23. I guess I will call Wolverine and see if they have any suggestions.
I also just noticed that a portion of the finish on the sole is missing, as shown below. Will this cause the sole to become saturated with water, or is this purely a cosmetic problem?
Horrible service from Revolve IMO. The discount is an ok gesture but it seems like they are just rotating bad merchandise until they can find a sucker to take them. I know another member returned his 3 times before he got a pair he was satisfied. I wonder how many of those boots he received were other peoples returns. Why the hell would the only other boots they have in stock be boots someone else returned???? Shouldn't they get sent back to Wolverine as defective?
