How stupid would I be to sell some $500 shoes to someone on Grailed in Russia, with no feedback?
I've been lucky enough to avoid bad selling experiences so far. If I ship tracked and insured with signature confirmation there's still plenty of ways I can get screwed over here right?
I lived in Moscow for a while. FedEx packages go through customs pretty quickly. EMS usually doesn't have problems, although it can get held up. Regular post -- compared to the others -- can be less reliable. Sometimes things just get held in customs for a long time and there's no way to check on the status. It could be less about the trustworthiness of the buyer and more about the lack of reliability in Russian government.
FWIW, I've sold things to Russian buyers before (when I lived in the US). Never had a problem, but you may want to hold out for a better option if it's $500 shoes.
I've sold to buyers in Russia, China, Malaysia, etc. all with no problems, but the two times I've had issues it was with people from California. Go figure. Just talk to the person, ask if they have Facebook, etc. if it's for an amount that large and you're worried.
So according to SSense one of their models has a 32" chest and 26.5" waist and yet he wears a 48. Its not even an isolated incident, all of their models have fucked up measurements. It actually boggles my mind, why blatantly lie? My waist measures 32" and I wear 28/29. Yet Mr. 26.5" waist wears a size 32, lol. So dumb might as well not have measurements.

Someone smashed my car window, stole my Master Piece bag with a laptop and phone in it, had tucked it out of sight but the guy got lucky. The bag will end up the garbage somewhere probably while the dude sells the hardware
