If you read the full description, you'll find out the details about that particular shoe. Not all styles or colors within a style will be on sale. Not all shoes are returnable. If there is a blemish, it will be noted. That being said, I have always gotten just what I ordered. At a substantial cost savings. I've never gotten a shoe that has reported a blemish & actually found a blemish. I love all my purchases from Dansko Outlet.
