Hi Everybody,

I just wanted to alert people to a compnay called http://sporting-shoes.com/

Despite the appearance of the website this is a company based in China from whom I ordered a pair of Asics Gel Blur 33 Men's Running Shoe size UK 9.5 in black on the 13th March and they still haven't come despite me being charged for them!

They did send a pair of pink Asics but they werent the Gel Blur (and I'm not even convinced they're real! the look dreadful and the finish is very poor with bits of glue left on the rubber and the paint had transfered to the fabric)

below is the email communication

It's a fake website. Report it to your bank as fraud and see if you can get your money back. Normally with credit cards - it's easy enough.
