Our runway samples have been worn once by a model for either a runway show or photoshoot. They are in perfect condition, but might have a couple of scuffs on the bottom of the shoe. For that reason, we offer them at a discount to you. Since discounts don't match well with our mission of paying the shoemakers more that industry standard, we rarely have sales. Runway samples are a great way to get your hands on our beautiful shoes at a lower price.
