I bought a pair of shoes from LK Bennett this time 3 years ago as part of a wedding outfit from their brand - they fell apart after just one wear and I brought them back to the shop they came from and they arranged for a new pair to be sent to me from their warehouse if I recall.
The replacement pair however weren't cut properly to the extent that when I try to walk in them they simply won't stay on!!
Needless to say I brought them straight back to the branch with which I'd been dealing explained the problem and asked for a refund - they flat out refused on the basis that they wouldn't admit they were faulty despite it being visibly obvious. This really annoyed me because the original pair where bought with a dress for a wedding I'd attended - the dress was badly cut - lining not aligned to the outer layer and I spent the entire day needing to fix myself.
They said that they only refunded on the dress 'to oblige me' despite them filling out the paperwork detailing and admitting the fault.
I was so disgusted at their shoddy customer service that I intended to write to their head office but moved house a few weeks later and completely forgot about the second pair of faulty shoes until finding them just now in a wardrobe clearout.
Do I have any recourse given that they were faulty and not fit for purpose - i.e. walking - you simply couldn't!! I've brought them to a cobbler near the store who was shocked when he saw them and gave me the exact measurements of the discrepancy between the 2 shoes.
Any advice would be much appreciated (I paid full price and their shoes ain't cheap...)
