Wal-Mart Shoe Recall

What: Did you buy shoes from Wal-Mart in January or December of 2008? If your answer is “yes,” watch your step. Black, grey, and purple “sling-back, pointed-toe shoes sold under the George brand” may cause a fall, due to flimsy/easily breakable heels. So, take them back to Wal-Mart, get a full refund, and shop for a sturdier pair.

What They Say:

“Consumers should immediately stop wearing the shoes and return them to the nearest Wal-Mart for a full refund.”

What We Say: Better late than never, Wal-Mart? It’s been more than a few months since these 200,000 shoes were sold and we’re guessing someone somewhere has stumbled – and that someone probably didn’t think much of it. After all, they only paid $13 for these things.

Is there such a thing as too cheap?

    Please, please, please—take the recall seriously.  I broke a kitten heel on a slick floor at work, fell hard, and spent TWO YEARS with my knee in rehab.

    Really, Walmart?! If you’re on a budget you should go to Payless if you’re really looking for deals. They’ve made great strides in the last couple of years to at least have some cute shoes. Otherwise do some digging at your local TJ MAXX, Marshalls, or Ross and save yourself and your ankles the trouble!
