According to the Yorkshire Post, Chris Heleine required hospital treatment after his feet became sore and blistered when he wore his new Sperry Top-Sider shoes by manufacturer Collective Brands - a firm established four years ago - in April 2009.
Mr Heleine purchased the footwear - which cost around £170 per pair - in Leeds before heading off on holiday to Menorca, but suffered these health problems the first time he wore them.
He had to go to hospital every day for a week to have the dressings changed on his feet and has subsequently been left with scarring.
The man then contacted Russell Jones & Walker (RJW) to pursue a claim for damages against the company and has now been granted a four-figure sum for his ordeal.
Christian Shotton of RJW commented: "We hope this action will remind manufacturers of their legal duty."
