Don't worry if they don't have your team. I bought these for my 6 yr old (not in team colors, in subdued tones) and he wore them once to a special occasion (so no horsing around, just normal walking & such), had them on a total of MAYBE 4 hrs & the seam began coming apart at the back of one heel. I repaired it, as I do sew & have upholstery curved needles & figured it was a fluke UNTIL XOLOS came up on woot again later & others reported similar issues. Since then they have disintegrated & become total play in the mud shoes for when I don't want to ruin his good shoes.
I should have reported the initial problem to woot, but figured it was maybe just my pair OR that it was just that seam. I am very disappointed to see that same brand come up on here over & over again after so many have posted previously, like me, that the quality is far from even a $20 price tag, much less the stated MSRP. They are hands down the worst pair of shoes i have ever purchased for my kids I can easily look into each kid's tote & count 10-15 pair that fit them TODAY. I have a "shoe thing" I guess. LOL My point is, seeing woot continue to supply a substandard product as a "deal" is making me feel the way so many others have posted about it turning into a way for amazon to pawn off crap it can't sell there. I am a reasonable person. I don't expect Manolo Blahniks for $20...I DO expect a child can walk around for 4 hrs in a pair of shoes BEFORE they start to fall apart & if others have said similar things like I have, I don't know...maybe quit pawning them off on here? Just a thought.
