I stumbled upon this website that sells not only brand new shoes but also pre-owned ones. In the Philippines, buying pre-owned things is a growing industry. While items sold at specialty stores are original and of good quality, I still couldn't muster enough courage to buy pre-owned shoes. Sure, I'd buy pre-owned bags but clothes and shoes are not my thing. A pet peeve perhaps. However, if you are the one who doesn't mind owning and wearing things that have been in someone else's closet, feet and body... you will save tons of money.
My tips on buying pre-owned shoes, particularly... check the scratches and the evenness of the heels because professional sellers won't sell worn out merchandise. Although sellers make sure that they clean the items before they hit the racks, it is best that you check if the shoes are clean both inside and outside.
