    it would depend how the zipper became broken.

    if it is because they are a cheap or poorly made pair of shoes, then 'defective', 'faulty', etc. as posted above would be the correct phrasing.

    If it is because they of how they were used, or misused, and not because of how they were made then they would be in fact broken, ruined, damaged, etc. just like you were trying to say in your OP.

    so why is the zipper broken? and they make shoes with zippers? lol. what ever happend to good old Velcro for those too lazy to tie em.

    During production we had a minor fault with one of our machines which left us with a number of slightly defective shoes. The shoes themselves look great, but sometimes the zipper may jam.

    In the UK, items which are manufactured imperfectly are called "seconds".

    I.e. not first quality, but second.
