Ok this is not really bike related but it is Nike related. I have Nike Superfly G5 track spikes that I got about 3 months ago. I have been working with them in practice and used them only about 5 times in meets. Now they have a zipper that holds the laces from flopping around, which I really like. Last night the zipper popped off so I took them to a shoe repair shop this morning. What dose the guy say? ďOh, you fell for the zipper too?Ē What? The zippers on all Nikes bust quit frequently. The shoe shop has a shelf of zippers just for Nike.
He then explains that zippers on shoes just canít take the pressures of running. But Nikeís especially break all the time. To repair the zipper is $30 a shoe and both need to be replaced and then will break again. ERRRR!!!! All of Nikes high dollar shoes are zipper equipped. Why donít they do something about it if this such a big problem?
Has anyone had a problem with Nikes? I am sending Nike a nasty-gram to see if they will do anything for me and all the other people with the same problem. What can I expect form them, if anything? I think/hope that such a big company like them will correct this but I donít know.
you can see the zipper on these models. Mine is the red and white one. They run from $110-120.
