Hi - I was not going to respond but feel that I have to and I realize the thread is closed and this will probably get closed as well but i can't help but feel like i need to defend myself. I emailed the seller on February 21st (day shoes were delivered) and NEVER got a response. After over a week, I filed a paypal claim. I think i was nice and completely honest about this, I feel quite strongly that the shoes were not as depicted- the listing does have tons of photos showing that they are in very used condition, so i was shocked to receive something that was in even worse condition- the insoles were so filthy i didnt even want to try them on. They've been relisted for at least the past 6 months- possibly even a year so it is possible that they've dulled, been damaged, etc while in storage since that time. I just did not appreciate having my integrity called into question here. I filed the claim simply because the seller did not respond to my email or message on ebay on February 21st.
