Wow that was quick, thanks for the helpSorry for your loss. The boots look fine to me but since you had a claim let Audreylita chime in too. If she agrees then I would highly suggest that you go to a professional authenticator as you don’t want anyone claiming counterfeit on your account. Authentication should cost less than $20 depending on who you use. Once the authentication comes back you can ask for eBay’s permission to relist. Do not relist without permission. Others can advise you how to handle this since I’m not experienced but I think you should tell the buyer that you’re going to a professional and if they are authentic you’ll take the return deducting all shipping. On an item that isn’t authentic IMO the seller should eat ALL Shipping, apologize profusely and offer a discount on a future purchase. JMO but know that it is YOUR responsibility to know that everything you list is authentic prior to listing. Let us know what happens.
Waiting on second advice and will probably contact professional
