I just received a pair of shoes I got off eBay, and I am SO sad that one shoe seems defective. The seller had several pairs of the same model listed, and I believe the pictures were all the same now that I think about it. I am so bummed. I paid over 400 dollars for these and that may be why it is hard for me to reconcile with the condition. I am posting this here to see if I am being too petty or not, or whether I have a case. These are a pair of platform peeptoe shoes, where the platform part is visible on the front. The leather wrapping the platform on one shoe is horizontally wrinkled (as if it was pushed down), while the other shoe has smooth platform. I even think it may have been better if both were wrinkled, because at least they would look uniform. To give you an idea of what kind of "platform" I'm talking about, I'll post this link as a reference (by the way these are NOT the ones I got). http://www.saksfifthavenue.com/main/ProductDetail.jsp?PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=845524446174728&FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=282574492709487&ASSORTMENT%3C%3East_id=1408474399545537&bmUID=1200612678049&ev19=2:1 And the leather part of the heel on the other side is a bit frayed (but not a huge issue). I'll try to post pics but I can't find my camera right now. Do you think I should just forget about it? Am I being too petty by asking for a partial refund? It does bother me. I don't know if she accepts return or what. I don't want to do that though. Too much hassle.
