Thought I had found myself a great deal when I found a nice pair of Next school shoes for my daughter. It was less £15 and it looked like leather.

Well, only after two days found that the toes were completely scuffed. The shoes are made in China and on closer examination found out that they were definitely not leather. A cheaper pair of school shoes from Tesco lasted longer. Can't believe that Next carries such low quality shoes in their stores.

Lesson of the day - Branded is not always the best.
