Next month: new shoe regulations require the use of materials that melt or burn when microwaved.



Nah, they won't need to push that hard. "Warranty void when microwaved" will most likely be enough.


I've never made a warranty claim for shoes, so that shouldn't be a problem.


Me neither (too lazy for that), but I know they are used and abused by people too. This leads to funny cases I heard of like a company specifying that some shoes are for "walking", not for "running", and refusing to refund them if you admit to running in them.


You guys need Norwegian consumer protection...


As long as it comes bundled with Norwegian famously cruel child "protection" services, thanks but no thanks.


That doesn't sound too unreasonable. Some shoes like heels are made for fashion, not function.


If it's "not unreasonable" for them to reject warranty claims if you run in shoes "not intended for running", does that mean it is reasonable to make a warranty claim on shoes "intended for fashion" if you're not picked up while wearing them?

"Wore these heels to six bars, didn't get hit on once. Please repair or refund."
