The straps of my sandals snapped just after two wears..

I would understand the straps snapping if they were cheap or been worn out, but just after two wears is unacceptable! I didn't even wear the sandals for long, max about a hour - because they need some breaking into. I was on my way out to the car and my right foot slid. I looked down, tah-dah the straps snapped. I have several pairs of sandals from the brand and never experienced any problems as each sandal is handmade and made of leather! I just got back to the mall and was able to return the sandals without any problems! I would have gotten the same sandals again because I like them, but they didn't have my size so I bought some other pairs of sandals and a pair of sneakers too! Have you ever snapped your sandals? Luckily, the sandals snapped in front of my house so I was able to go in and get a different pair to wear.

That was an unpleasant experience, but I'm glad that you got your replacement sandals :). What I'm assuming is that they may have been out on the shelf, possibly in a hot and dry area for very long. This dries up leather, which becomes brittle and may tear up like cardboard. The shoes may have never been worn, however they won't last for too long. It happened to me to leave some shoes unworn for years, which seems to have been quite a bad idea, as they literally eroded when I took them out.

Nope not yet. These days I don't wear sandals as i'm always in my business attire. When i go to the beach, I just wear havaianas slippers or crocs sandals. What brand of sandal was that? Would like to know so i could avoid buying that too.
