The shoes are NEW. Nobody wore them. Stickers and marker stains are not damage IMHO. Should the seller have disclosed this info? Of course. Did she alter the pics so you wouldn't see the markings on the sole? Who knows!!!!! What was the seller suppose to put to described the condition of the shoe? She couldn't put Pre Owned!!! I mean this is hardly a crisis. I'm with Poopsie2, and BeenBurned on this!!
