the only thing for sure is that you can return the shoe and contact for a refund via seller or paypal cause in the auction there is no reference for the defect and the shoes are mentioned as new!!
for me they look more like a shop window sample exposed to direct sunlight for over a season and not as a floor model!! someone asked to try it and as it is shown on the picture the dried leather teared at the stretch point after that they put it on ebay for obvious reason!!
