I went to Steve Madden to buy a comfortable pair of work shoes. I tried some on and bought them. The first and only day I wore them I ended up walking barefoot through the streets of DC because I could not stand to take another step in them. My feet were bleeding. I noticed after wearing them for the first and only day that the seams were fraying so I decided to return them since they would not work for my purposes. I went back to the store with my receipt and explained my story. Apparently they were on clearance because they were buy one get one half off(I bought only one full price pair) so all sales were final. The original sales person failed to mention this and it was only in small print on the bottom of the receipt. The shoes are not listed as clearance either, but the price ends with .99, so that is supposed to be the giveaway.
