Yeah, we are talking about used shoes here, not AE firsts or seconds (read through the string about him trying to decide if he should keep his used shoes). Are you asking if I think AE should put trees in their shoes before they are sold? Absolutely not. Perhaps in a perfect world, but that would drive the cost of shoes a lot higher with negligible benefits.
He's asking whether you are advising the poster to return his used shoes to the seller on EBay. I'm assuming the seller in question must have a return policy for this to even be in discussion.
