Hello everyone! I have recently become addicted to CL heels. My bag funds have become CL funds and my collection has grown at a fast speed (for me anyway). I own 7 pairs, but have only had the chance to wear 2 so far and now to the problem... The Yo-yo pumps heel totally fell apart the first time I wore them and I was very careful, walking lightly on smooth surfaces etc. The leather part of the heel seperated from the shaft and the rubber cap had metal sticking out of it! I returned them to NM and was given a new pair. This pair has not been worn yet because the leather is already pulling away from the shaft and I think I need to return them ASAP to avoid the same problem happening. The second disaster occured with my Eventa heels. The first time I wore them they were fine. Yesterday I took them out for a spin, again being super careful, even more so than with the Yo-yo's because now I am nervous. When I took the shoes off after minimal wearing and walking the heel on one of the shoes had started to "accordian". The best way to describe it is the rubber cap is the finger nail and the leather is the cuticle. The leather/cuticle is getting squished into the shape of an accordian. It looks like the rubber cap is pushing against the leather and making it shrink up the shaft of the heel. So my question is, has anyone ever experienced this? Any advice? I adore CL shoes, but for the price I feel like this is absurd! I am honestly gentle with them as they are like works of art to me. I have the following shoes unworn: Python Very Prive, Python Simple Pumps, Yo-yo pump, Eventa Purple Suede, Rolando Bright Blue. Should I return all of them? Do I perhaps walk in a way that is not CL friendly? Any advice would be appreciated as my heart is broken right now! Thanks in advance and sorry for the epic and long post!
