- Forum: Classic Menswear
Ebay states that in order to be considered new, shoes must never have been worn. But I would view "worn" as being worn outside and/or having any mark on the sole. However, every department store will allow you to try on a pair of a shoes in store, which may cause slight stresses in the leather, but that doesn't mean that they aren't new. Can you claim that a shoe is new WITHOUT defects if they have been tried on before and there is a tiny stress in the leather from it?
