I was on Poshmark,and noticed some of the preowned shoes for sale.  Some were in new condition, others were well worn.  Would you buy previously owned shoes?

After working for a podiatrist for 19 years, I think the shoes could be sanitized and be relatively safe to wear.  I, personally, have a hangup about even wearing used clothing, so have never worn used shoes and probably never will - UNLESS it was some designer heel that I would never be able to afford new.

Would never buy used shoes online.  I wouldn't wear pre-owned shoes borrowed or given to me even from a family member. 

I don't think it's good for my feet to conform to previously broken in or worn configurations, and I think it's as unsanitary as wearing bowling shoes supplied by the alley operators. (I don't care what they spray in them.) 

Feh!

I wouldn't wear anything that had foot imprints.

 

Once, at Dillards, about 15 years ago, I tried on some beautiful designer clogs.  There were toe imprints indicating clearly they had been worn.  Of course I wouldn't take them, and they were the only pair in my size.  I couldn't believe they would put a worn item on the floor!

I purchased a pair of Clark's Sixty Cruise from a seller on Ebay, they were simply tried on, didn't fit, put back in the box, put on a shelf & listed years later...I was excited to find them since they're my favorite style & discontinued.

I don't have a problem with it. I've sold a lot of preowned shoes.
