BB, I went back and looked. The OP simply cleaned them. My bad.
I would think that if I went through the trouble of cleaning a pair of pre-owned shoes, it'd be because I saw a redeeming quality in them. Therefore, I would keep them. I think. This is all hypothetical, since I don't buy used shoes.
This reminds me of posters complaining about receiving pre-owned jeans with lady stains. We all have our own ick threshold, and that would send me over the edge (crusty shoes too). Okay, now I'm just rambling. Carry on.
I looked at the photos and those shoes were minging as far as I could see...Slightly green?brown tinged inners ......pre used shoe's give me the willies ..as far as I'm concerned pre used could stand for anything!! Yuck
I think you got what you paid for..
You got an offer for a refund but still neg?...unfair no neg I say
Wow. That is some really horrible feedback left for others. Just goes to show how important it is to look at feedback left. I agree this doesn't deserve a negative. Sounds like many others didn't either. All I can say is "wow." I feel sorry for the seller. She was trying to make things right.
