Good afternoon - Quite a nice day here, although a bit chilly this morning. I went to the allotment earlier and did some digging. Not much to do now but plan for tomorrow and the next day, which will be quite involved.

The rash I mentioned yesterday is most likely down to cutting down a dogwood plant. This is only an Internet opinion though. I didn't know dogwood is on a list of poisonous plants but it is. Looks like I'll have to put up with the redness for a few weeks.

Good morning - Cool and rainy today.
Went to a funeral yesterday, was going to wear my Clarks black shoes that I keep for such occasions, and have worn perhaps three or four times, but they had disintegrated in the wardrobe, I couldn't believe my eyes, but it would appear that mine were just one of many pairs of rotting Clarks' shoes https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?p=72417122

.....these are mine.....

Good morning - A nice sunny start to the day after a dull and wet day yesterday. I didn't do anything yesterday but I expect we'll have some of the family visiting later today.

A very unexpected thing to happen to Clarks shoes Malcolm. It kind of ruins faith in the Brand. I suppose the only good part is that it happened before the funeral and not during the time you were there.

I complained to Padders about some shoes I had worn only a dozen times. The soles were breaking up. They asked me to peel back the lining inside the heel and provide them with the code number I would find there. Which I did.

They reported back that like other leading manufacturers, their shoe soles were made from bio degradable materials with a service life of about 5 years for ecological reasons.

My shoes were just over 6 years old. Sad but true - I was not able to obtain any compensation.

I now have fewer shoes in my wardrobe and wear them more often to get the maximum use out of them.

Here is a copy of their nonsensical reply to my email.
I have highlighted the nonsense

Dear

Thank you for taking the time to contact us with regards to your husband's shoes. I was sorry to learn of your dissatisfaction with the quality of the product. 

We're very proud of the quality of our footwear.  To make sure we keep to the high standards we've set for ourselves, we carry out extensive testing on all our new materials and designs before they go on sale.

From the images you have sent it looks like the man- made materials used in making the shoes may have degraded over time.  This process can be increased by various factors, including the temperatures and levels of humidity that the footwear is exposed to.  Many man-made materials can occasionally lose their elasticity with age and prolonged storage.  These circumstances may eventually cause the sole unit to break down when flexed.

We have examined your shoes, and can confirm that they are over 6 years old.  Their condition is not due to a fault with the materials or construction method used, but due to natural deterioration through age and storage which is known in the shoe industry as hydrolysis.

As both manufacturer and retailer, we carefully follow the guide lines set down by trading standards.  We give consideration to complaints on adult’s footwear up to six years after purchase.  This is the period that is deemed to be reasonable time in law during which we, the manufacturers, can be held responsible for breakdown and/or deterioration of product materials.

I hope you will understand that we cannot guarantee that our shoes will last forever, but we do our best to make them long lasting.

As a business we took the decision to offer a goodwill voucher to the value of £10 if we received returns of this type, and to disregard the time that has passed since purchase and the absence of proof of purchase.  We do this as a gesture of goodwill to our loyal customers for one pair of shoes.

I would therefore kindly advise that I have issued an e-gift for the amount of £10.00.  Your e-gift will arrive in a separate email within 2-3 days.  The e-gift can be used in any Clarks store in the UK and ROI, this excludes online or other stockists and is valid for 2 years.

Thank you again for taking the time to contact us and I apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Kind regards

Sean

Good Morning - Sunny and fairly warm for the time of year.

Regarding the shoes, a similar thing happened to me years ago. I'd never have expected the materials used in making shoes to biodegrade but as I found out, they do. The sole separated from the upper while I was wearing the shoes on an evening out. Highly embarrassing.

I let it go because I'd had the shoes a long time and couldn't remember where I'd got them from. Otherwise I might have had a grumble.
