The material just seems rotten. They are junk! I didn't expect this from Wolverine. This last pair just didn't hold up. The lady at the complaint number said I didn't wear them enough. What a crock, they don't have a clue as to how often I wear them. They simply had a bad batch of boots and won't admit it and they have lost a customer.
I had almost the same thing happen to a couple of pairs of shoes from Clarks. They were much older than the wolverines and I didn't wear them near as often. Clarks directed me to go on their online store and pick any two pairs at no cost whatsoever to me.
Now there is a company that is more than fair and looks out for their customers. At any rate, un less wolverine comes up with a better solution than I was offered, they'll never have my business again, except MAYBE to get something out of this rip-off.
