“I bought the shoes at the Salvation Army with a missing toe medallion and contacted the company about buying a replacement medallion, which turned into them just replacing the shoes altogether for free — an act of outstanding customer service I am still in awe of. Apparently that’s why you buy $225 flats instead of just going with the $17.99 Payless option.”
