How does Piff define deadstock sneakers?

Piff defines "New" sneakers as unworn and complete with original box including box lid..

Piff defines “New” sneakers, unworn with original box (including box lid), as would be acceptable for sale at a retail location. Deadstock sneakers are 100% authentic. This may or may not include additional accessories, laces, manufacturer tags, special packaging, etc. Currently, we do not accept B-grades.

Pairs may still be considered "New" despite being unlaced, tried on for fitment, and/or slight uncontrollable manufacturer flaws and imperfection. The original box may have encountered minimal damage from shipping, discoloration from storage and/or any normal wear and tear due to aging.

Be aware "New" sneakers may be conditional including signs of age when it comes to older pairs, including slight yellowing and should be worn at your own risk. "New" sneakers that are several years old, when worn, may experience structural weakness and a lack of durability.

We do require any original accessories that may have been included by the manufacturer, however, we do not require any stickers or the shopping bag that may or may not have been included during the original sale. In addition, we strongly encourage every seller to include the original tags and clear plastic sleeve with every sale, but these are not required as they will vary depending if the original purchase was in-store or online.
