“Immature and Disorganized Owner”

written by shoeguy22 on 27/04/2022

This is a review for Don's Footwear and Elevator Shoes. He made 2 pairs of custom shoes for me. It would have been a whole collection had he not gone off the deep end in an emotionally immature and volatile way. I had my eyes on a next pair but he is impossible to work with and so disorganized that he doesn't even know when he's getting paid or not. It's not worth ordering here, you might get into a fight for reasons you don't understand. The first was pair great, he listened and did what I asked according to my measurements and small requests. As soon as the requests got slightly more complicated, things went wrong. Second pair was awful, completely wrong design, wrong size and everything. He sent me a new pair without asking for money, I assumed he was giving them to me free for all the trouble. He never sent an invoice or asked for the previous pair back. In fact, he had not been responding to emails for about a month and I had to file a charge back so we had gone through a lot of stuff by that point and I thought he was trying to make things right. 5 months later I get an email accusing me of taking from him and he asks for money for the boots. This was alarming and confusing but of course I paid him and sent back the original pair of boots which he never told me where to send to, I had to ask several times for an address to send to. I sent them back to him and they arrived at his front desk according to the tracking info. This was 2 weeks ago. Today, I wake up to email, 6 months after my last purchase, where he accuses me of taking the boots he made that were completely the wrong size. Why would I take boots I can't even wear? The tracking number says it arrived at his shop 2 weeks ago. I didn't do anything wrong. I waited months for the right boots, I paid him everything I owed him, I sent the wrong boots back, I still have the pair of boots he sent the second time which are poor quality but I accepted them given all the trouble. Now the guy is accusing me for literally no reason. Guess the guy likes the poison his customer base for fun. And I was a loyal customer who went out of his way to keep the relationship with him going after he screwed up so spectacularly with the last pair of boots. I really wanted to be his customer because his product is unique but I've found that unfortunately the boots were not well made. Anyway, I can prove all this is true with the tracking info and email correspondences. If this disappears it's because he wanted this review gone.

“1 Good Order, 1 Bad Order, No Ordering Again”

written by Shoeman9000 on 11/05/2020

I bought one pair of shoes and they were good, as ordered. Bought a second pair and they were bad. For the second pair, I ordered real leather and I think I got fake leather. I ordered a 2 inch increase and got a 1.5 inch increase instead. The second pair was also probably the most uncomfortable shoes I have ever worn. Will not be ordering a third pair. Will look for elevator shoes elsewhere. I think he outsources his shoes to be made somewhere cheaply either out of greed or some other reason. And I was planning on ordering more.

“Good Choice”

written by Mary984 on 18/05/2019

Shoes feel lose and squeak when I walk. But the shopping and shopping experience was very good.

“The shoes I ordered from Don's Shoes were not the...”

written by 176Woodard on 10/06/2017

The shoes I ordered from Don's Shoes were not the shoes that were delivered to me. While I'm not going to express an opinion one way or another, for fear this idiot might try to sue me, every one of the people that saw the shoes that were delivered to me said they had definitely NOT been hand-made. Including an American Express agent! Moreover, when I tried them on, they were the most uncomfortable shoes I have ever worn. Thank God I charged the shoes with my American Express card, and I was able to dispute the charge. When American Express reached out to Don for documentation regarding my purchase, he provided some, but did so in a ridiculously unprofessional fashion. He called me a "small man" and stated I was trying to steal the shoes. He stated "my fingers bloody" from working so hard on my shoes. Please. In subsequent e-mail exchanges with Don, he refused to answer my questions and wrote back in a mean and derogatory manner. Here's a quote from his most recent e-mail to me: "you ofended because your not tall as the bird you dating". Really? Truly? Finally, if Don is from Scotland, like his web site says, he never made it through elementary school. His spelling and grammar are a joke. Isn't it telling that Don makes fun of, and is mean to the people that make up his primary clientele? Doesn't he deserve to be run out of town on a rail and lose his business? American Express will refund my money to me and force Don (or Allen or whatever name he's using this week) to pay them back. I will also not be returning Don's awful, crappy, garbage shoes unless he sends the money to me for shipping them to him in advance. Again, the worst mistake of your life will be to buy anything from this liar.

“Excellent quality/service”

written by Kenzie213 on 30/01/2017

I just took delivery of my first order from Don's. The communication from when the order was placed was more than I would have expected. For hand made shoes if this quality (which is exceptional) the time from order placed until arrival at my front door was less than 3 weeks. These shoes are very well made and the midsole technology seamlessly adds 2 1/2 inches of lift. I'm glad I ordered 2 pairs! Thank you!!! I would recommend these shoes to anyone even if they were not seeking a hidden lift.

“Don't buy anything from this company!!”

written by vwSanders300 on 16/07/2015

Don't buy anything from Don's their shoes are terrible. I received 2 pairs and it is so obvious that the shoes have a lift in them, they are really bulky and just plain terrible. They also do not fit properly. Customer service is awful so you will never get your money back. Please do not buy from this company

“Wrong size, no return, non-responsive”

written by Searsqp256 on 28/07/2014

I ordered shoes from here for my wedding and gave size and explicit measurements. The shoes came in and were nearly three sizes too big - and it was too close to the wedding date to replace them in time. Still, I wanted my money back, so I emailed about a return. I NEVER got a response, even after emailing several times from different accounts. I have to assume he is simply ignoring me. Now I am stuck with a pair of $300 shoes that don't fit. Total waste, very unprofessional.

“Terrible customer service. Made so many mistakes and...”

written by nightmaple on 03/02/2014

Terrible customer service. Made so many mistakes and then blames them all on the customer. And said: "well such is life!" That's right, that's quoting word for word. The unwillingness of correction his mistakes is just unbelievable. The first pair I bought from them had lose thread and he said he would make up to me and half a year now and still nothing. So many broken promises it's quite upsetting on how unprofessional this guy is. There's no good craftsmanship but a greedy shoemaker. Really wouldn't recommend buying shoes from this company.

“I just received my new pair of Dons elevator shoes and...”

written by on 02/05/2013

I just received my new pair of Dons elevator shoes and I love them. I bought the classic 513. I read the bad review on this site after I made the order and it did worry me. But the shoes arrived after 3 weeks and they are very good quality. I am returning a pair of Toto's I bought in case these didn't arrive. There is an obvious difference in materials between the two. I plan to buy more of Dons shoes.

“Dons Shoes”

written by on 09/04/2013

Im Allan. Im the owner of Don's and the shoemaker. Sometimes Im slow at making the shoes, But I always get there in the end. Before the website did not state clearly enough that the shoes were handmade and made to order. To be honest If If I wear to stock every 1 in every in every color, height increase I would need to have over 3000 pairs in stick. Its a great advantage to make the shoes to order, but the problem is the time it takes.

Allan I bought a pair and the sole in the front is coming apart - I think it is the glue - any thoughts on how I can repair them.

Written on: 27/04/2022

You are slow at replying, don't listen to what the customer wants and then you accuse them of taking from you when it is you who has taken time from me and so many others. You are so disorganized you don't even know when you're being paid. I had to chargeback because you didn't reply to emails and when you asked me to undo the chargeback I said you simply need to resolve the case and you never did and now you're upset you had to pay me back for your own mistake. I even emailed you the day before the case closed so you could have a final opportunity to resolve it and you did NOTHING about it! So then you email me asking for money again, which I graciously pay you. So now you're all paid up and what do you do? You send me another email calling because you can't locate the shoes I returned to you. The tracking number says you have them in your hands. You're lying to me and the credit company. You are immature, unhinged and so disorganized you don't even know where your boots and money are. The tracking number says you received the boots, they are in your possession and yet you lie to me? Check your inventory. He won't reply to your emails for months and then when he needs something from you he'll accuse you if you don't reply in 3 hours. Literally. This person need therapy. Lots and lots of therapy.

He is a very bad businessman and I can easily prove it with receipts, records, tracking numbers, pictures and emails. It's beyond comprehension why you would lie about things that are easily proven false, but here we are. What a mistake to ever have ordered from you.

Look at the two comments above mine, both are stating unhappiness with the product or experience and he didn't reply to either of them. Just left them hanging.

Not only are you slow in making the shoes, but you don't reply to emails at all when something is wrong with them. I ordered a US size 8.5 in the glossy finish and you sent me a 7.6 in a plain finish. This is totally unacceptable. And, to top it all off, I've e-mailed you 3 times about an exchange and you are simply ignoring me. You are not to be trusted !!!!!!!!!!

“CHEAT ”

written by on 12/01/2013

I bought a pair of shoes and the increase i requested at the time of booking was not what i got when the shoes got delivered. When i reported this to Allan from Don's shoe company he said the would send me some inserts to make up for it. I reminded him every week for the inserts and he gave me a lame excuse time after time. I never got the inserts or any money back for the mistake they made. It is now almost a year since i placed the order with them. I will never buy from them, not only do they lie and cheat customers but their customer service is rubbish. I am going to take them legal. I have many emails from Allan with so many broken promises.
