    It is only money, my friend. Buy the BT's and complete the set.

    Still waiting for a response. Worst case scenario, I'll take whatever credit they give me and sell it right back to them. Price has already gone up enough for me to get my my money back after fees. The question will be whether or not to repurchase at the higher price or just move on...

    This is true but I ended up selling some things I didn't need in the collection and ended up taking the hit to complete my set. Price will just continue to go up longer you wait.

    I'm kind of concerned about making it worse to the point that I won't be able to sell it back honestly. I don't currently have any crep at the moment anyways. Depending on what response I get I'll reassess the situation

    Sucks that your pair is blemished, hopefully GOAT does something to make it sorta right

    If you bought them to keep, just take a soft bristle bush to them with some soap and water, that will come right out.

    Bought them to add to my collection with potential to wear, but potential to sell if it surges because I'm not gonna rock them right away regardless. I enjoy the DS phase lol

    Pretty much why im pretty reluctant when buying on Stock or GOAT. Im pretty picky but if im spending that kind of bread I would like to see what im purchasing first.

    I feel like if they play hardball with me I'll play hardball right back and tell them I'll share the photos on their Twitter page and warn other potential customers about spending their hard earned money with a company that doesn't care about sending out dirty sneakers. I'm only one person, but at least it would be out there.

    That’s exactly what i did for the Storm blue pair. Couldn’t justify spending $1,000 for a pair of sneakers, so I sold a few shoes I would never wear. Had the chance over the weekend to grab the black toes for 1250 and i passed... lol

    I want them to find me a new pair at the same price. It's already$100-$150 more than it was when I made the purchase. There's no reason that should fall on me. I'm more frustrated I wasn't contacted during the inspection. Would've been nice to be able to make the decision then and try for a new pair at that price point.

    Sucks because they usually will contact you for stuff like that...at least they have in my experience. There was one time I had an issue though and they gave me like $60 in goat credit

    Been over 48 hours since I've messaged them, still no response. I think I'm over Goat after this and will be sticking exclusively with stockx
