You can't exactly call it "dead" when you keep firing back. This is forum thread to discuss thrift finds...if you want everyone to heap praise on every find you've made, it's not going to happen; you have to accept that (and if you're wise, learn from the criticism).
The shoes were ridden hard a put away wet, to stay with the equestrian theme. The market will dictate how often potential purchasers think they were worn. Personally, if I posted those for sale, I would not have said 'worn once' like you did because you just don't know; SF'ers are discerning buyers and don't take kindly to BS.
Relax and good luck with the sale.
