How Long Do Appliances Last In Spain?

I have noticed that many things we use and or purchase in Spain just don’t last as long; it could be that we are buying on the cheap or the quality just isn’t the same.

Take shoes for example, we have to buy Lars and Anya shoes every 2-3 months.  Now this isn’t because their feet are growing so fast. No, it’s because they wear through their shoes like there is no tomorrow.  I am talking holes in the toes or on the sole of their shoe.  I am not sure if it is the quality of the shoe that is the problem, or are the kids just far more active than they were in the US?  Perhaps it is a combo of both, but this trend of things wearing out spans to other areas for us as well, like our Spanish appliances.
