I thought about that, but these were Ferragamos with rubber soles, and all the soles were still in tact and said "Ferragamo" on them. Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but would that really be worth it? And, also, if they were being sent back to Ferragamo, why wouldn't they end up at their outlets? I actually thought about buying some and selling them myself, as they were only $70 at the Rack, but then decided they wouldn't get enough to be worth it. What made me really curious about the whole thing is that some of the shoes there are in such crappy shape from being tried on so much, yet they were never re-done and are still selling for a higher price. I can't tell you the number of shoes I've turned down there because the uppers were full of crfeases (but they'd never been worn out, because the original soles were still perfect and in tact).
