Short version: Very poor quality, do not buy!rnrnI previously purchased another pair of Ethletic trainers from their website, and was awfully disappointed with the quality of the item; it looked like the various parts of the shoe were not glued together properly and I had to dispose of that pair within weeks of purchase.rnrnI then decided to give the company another chance, and purchased this pair from Ethical Superstore - and unfortunately made a really bad call! The canvas material started to rip off near the ankle part of the trainer after about a month and a half after purchase, on both shoes, despite my being very careful when putting them on.rnrnHad this been my first purchase from Ethletic then it could have reasonably been just a bad pair and bad luck on my part, but as it's the second time this happened to me within months, it points out to one thing; the production quality of the product simply does not match the non-ethical competition (and likely some other ethical companies, too) and, more importantly, does not merit the higher-than-average price of the trainers.rnrnThe shipment and service from Ethical Superstore was flawless as always and I do not blame them for the poor quality of the product in the slightest, but at the same time, I will definitely never purchase an Ethletic product ever again. rnrnThe product gets one star as it was useful for about 6 weeks, but for that price it should last way longer than that. If you're considering buying a pair of Ethletic trainers, I seriously suggest you reconsider it and go with a different company.rn
