Clarks Shoes Made in Brazil Cracked in 1 Day

Some of you were made to believe the Clarks shoes that were made in China were the problem ones, but I am wearing the pair which is made in China and it is still running after 5 years.

Looked at my uploaded photos here, these 2 pairs Made in Brazil, totally garbage! Totally wasted my hard earned money!

The company made people to believe that if they didn't wear them often, then they would crack? That's B.S., I have 2 other pairs of Clarks, the shoe soles looked the same, yes looked the same, but now I looked and compared them carefully, these garbage shoe soles are a little soft. The good ones are a bit harder, if you hold them and squeeze them a little bit, you can feel the small difference. The company tried to fool me, yes, they did, but no more. I wear the other 2 pairs which have been in storage, no problem.

Shoe Uppers detached from Sole

I too recently experienced a pair of Clark shoes with the dreaded Hydrolysis, Mine were 10 year old shoes, but were not worn much at all as they are summer sandals and I have tons of summer shoes. Anyway, I was walking to work when my foot felt "funny" and I noticed the shoe was detaching as I walked. Silly me, I assumed the stitching had worn out and they just needed to be resewn. No, it is the rubber that is splitting and they cannot be repaired. This happened on a Friday. On Saturday, I was at an estate sale where a neighbor's elderly mother had died. There were 15 pairs of Clark shoes...I was telling her about my shoes disseintegrating and tugged on the uppers of her mothers' and darn if they didn't do the same. Each and every single pair -- all 15. All were made in Brazil with leather uppers. The uppers on all looked brand news.
I contacted Clarks and learned that "hydrolysis" is a natural phenomenon. I was stunned....I have had many shoes and have not had a single pair do anything like this. Then I started reading....and apparently this happens with molded plastic soles. Seems like shoes no longer have leather soles. Now that I know there I will no longer "invest" in classic shoes that I expect to keep for years. Seems like cheapie throw-away shoes is the way to go. Very sad.

Clarks shoes soles disintegraed

Both soles of my Clarks "Springer" sandals suddenly disintegrated while I was walking. There had been no indication, and then suddenly, both soles at the same time, simply crumbled. Made a total mess, too. See photo enclosed .

scond pair of shoes fell apart

For the 3rd time, another pair of my Clark shoes have fallen apart. I happen to have 8 or 10 pairs of clark shoes and this is rediculus. this pair is 3275-8 9m 09-99.

The shoes have only been worn a couple of times and have been kept in a closet that is humidity controled. There are almost no scuffs on the toes and the shoes are beautiful. I sent my husband to grab them and the upper part was almost completely detached from the sole. The sole is also crumbleing.
