"I buy a lot of shoes from Russell and Bromley. I bought a pair some months ago costing 195.00 which I did not wear more than a couple of times until I took them on holiday. Wore them on a day when we had a shower for no more than 20-30 minutes. The left shoe just let water in so that my foot was soaking. These were substantial shoes and so I took them back. After two weeks I received a letter saying they would not do anything. The shoes were guaranteed waterproof so it was OK. Cannot believe it. Had expected batter. I shall not be buying any more."
