    While yes, a mule can be open toe, I only call a closed toe a mule, and an open backed heeled sandal a slide. :teach:

    Question:

    For those using Garage Sale, when you resist an item, do you use GS "relist" or do it directly through eBay?

    Speaking of "rock," I am still wanting @SpooPoker to post a picture of the Ron Jeremy "Rock out with my cock out" autographed shirt. That is priceless!

    I do it directly through eBay. I don’t really use GS much aside from the actual listing/scheduling. I should probably mess around with it more. (Yeah yeah TWSS)

    So in my quest to get a pair of turtledove Yeezy, I bought a pair that were advertised as NWOB and “guaranteed authentic” from a power seller with over 3k feedback, 100% rating. The pictures weren’t great (or maybe it was due to only being viewed on mobile) but quality appeared there. I rolled the dice, since it wasn’t like 99% of Yeezy listings in that the seller was established with more than a couple ratings.
    Got them today. Definitely not genuine due to numerous tells.
    Initiated a return politely explaining how they weren’t genuine and included pictures to back it up. Seller accepted it within minutes. No apologies or communication besides the automated stuff.

    What would you guys do for feedback? I hesitate to leave negative or neutral as I know how much I’d hate receiving those myself, and yet I don’t feel like they deserve positive. Don’t guarantee something if a quick google search for authentication can bring up evidence to them being suspect.

    I’m mainly pissed as I was hoping I’d actually got a pair at slightly over retail, which is 4-8x less than what other people are selling authentic ones for. And now I’m waiting a week for a refund.

    Think about what kind of feedback you would want to receive if you were the seller. I personally would not leave feedback. Others on here would argue to leave positive feedback as the seller did everything to accommodate you, but the "100% genuine" would put me over the top for a no feedback.

    Depends on the intent of the seller to me, which would have to be a judgement call on your part. If someone is knowingly selling fakes, claiming that they are authentic, they deserve a neg. How are their other listings? Do those have much better photos than the ones for the Yeezys?

    Difference in ostrich leg versus full quill.
