Are Aldo shoes the best you can get? - Page 2

post #16 of 25
If you are in London or can easily visit London, as first step up go to the Loake store in the Princes Arcades between Piccadilly and Jeremy St. Check the 1880 collection, try the model/lasts you like and then visit their website to confirm the name/model. After you are sure of model and size , visit Men Traditional Shoes in Walworth road where you can order any model of the 1880 collection and collect it within a reasonable time. Once there you can check their other shoes in stock, including AS seconds and the day you feel like splashing, can also order straight from the factory and pay at discount, Crockett & Jones..

I was noy expecting miracles but at least something that I could wear for may be a year?

Just an update. I started using shoe trees and more shoe shine with the first Aldo pair. They look OK now. I returned the second pair, I got my money back. Thumbs up for Aldo, fair play.

 

I got a pair of Loake in Debenhams, discounted from £180 to £120. Looks like it will take a bit till they form to fit my feet. But they look very good.

I also got a pair of Harrykson in TkMaxx for £40. They look good, and have a goodyear leather sole as well. I am not sure how will they look after wearing them for a bit but they are comfortable as hell. They are an ideal fit for my feet.

I also got 2 other pairs in TkMaxx. One I had to return because the sole started playing tricks after one day of wearing. The second pair is Mikekonos. It is not as comfortable as Harrykson but looks very good and after using a shoe stretcher is good enough to wear. My girlfriend says they look very good. For £45 I guess it is a good buy.

 

I also tried couple of pairs of Loake, Barkers and Cheaney. The all seemed not a good fit for my feet. The pair of Loake I got seems to be a different cut or something.

 

I tried Churches as well. Man, that feels nice on my feet, I can see why the can be more expensive. I am looking forward to June discounts and will get a pair definitely.

 

Thanks guys for the help! Really appreciate it! :)

As a company, we stand behind our products and we are willing to listen to every customer that has a concern so we can find a way to satisfy our clients.

 
We sincerely apologize that our merchandise has not met your satisfaction and will forward your comments to our Buying department. After all, it is only through customer feedback that we can improve.
 
Furthermore, we're pleased to inform you that manufacture defects are covered for an unlimited amount of time. However, because we cannot see the merchandise, it is difficult for us to make a decision from Head Office. 
 
In the event of a manufacture defect, we normally recommend that you bring the shoes, along with your receipt or proof of purchase such as a debit or credit statement, to your nearest ALDO store and ask to speak with the store manager. The manager will then assess the damage, and see whether the shoes can be exchanged or repaired. Please note that this decision is left at the manager's discretion. 
 
However, if it is not convenient for you to return to one of our stores, you can always contact us with photos of the defective item, the ALDO logo that appears on the product and a copy of your receipt. You can send this information directly to Customer Service: comments@aldogroup.com.
 
Once we have this information, we will evaluate the situation and contact you with more options. 
 
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and hope to have the chance to serve you again.
