We look at and evaluate the Uppers, Insole/footbed, Soles and Laces
NWT (New With Tags):
Brand new with Manufacturer's Tags. If original box is not included we will specifically mention that.
Like New / Mint:
Used maybe one time. Little to no indications that they have been worn. Typical of shoes/boots being tried on for fit..worn less than 1 hr.
Signs that shoes have been worn is evident. Typically, very light sole wear. Generally no wear or scratches on uppers. Typical of a shoe/boot used for 1 week.
Minor amount of use. Minimal sole wear, a few light scuffs on Uppers, but, nothing significant. Still very clean item, with lots of life left in shoe.
Some definite indications they have been worn, but nothing totally bad. Still a lot of life left in the shoes...Logo on insole or tags not readable
Moderate to heavy use, or a visible flaw. We typically take close ups of any visible issues.
Significant Use. Major visible defects, but still with some life and not ready for the garbage can
