I purchased a pair of Dockers slippers from J.C. Penny over the 2012 Holiday.
Less than 2 months later, the plastic sole near the inside heel on BOTH slippers split lengthwise. There's now a 3 inch slit in one slipper, and about an inch and a half slit in the other, and both are growing daily. I expect that within a few days to a week they will be totally unwearable.
I used to believe that the Levi's brand stood for quality, but now it apparently stands for cheap junk imported from China. I'll never buy a Levi's product again.
Monetary Loss: $20.
