Shoe Grading System

Due to the amount of shoes that we take in, we now use a grading system in order to illustrate an idea of what the condition may look like when ordering a shoe from us!

Grade A or Deadstock: Shoes listed as Grade A or Deadstock are brand new, unworn, with or without the tags attached to the shoe. Includes all the original lace(s), accessories (if any), and packaging. Deadstock shoes that come without the original part(s) will be mentioned in the description. 

Grade B: Shoes listed as Grade B are considered to be VNDS (Very Near Deadstock) condition. These shoes are a minimum 9/10 condition, meaning that they have been worn a maximum of 5 times. There are very little signs of wear, if any, on Grade B shoes. 

Grade C: Shoes listed as Grade C are considered to be lightly used condition. These shoes are a minimum 8/10 condition, and come with no major flaws. Apparent signs of wear may include dirty bottoms, minor creasing, and minor drag.
