Cape Kickz defines a "Deadstock" pair of sneakers as unworn and complete 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.
As with sneakers sold at retail, some pairs will pass "Deadstock" inspection despite being unlaced, tried on for fitment, and/or slight manufacturer flaws and imperfections that are uncontrollable.
Be aware "Deadstock" sneakers can include signs of aging when it comes to older pairs, including slight yellowing and should be worn at your own risk. In addition, all "Deadstock" sneakers should include the original box, which may have encountered minimal damage from shipping, discoloration from storage and/or any normal wear and tear due to aging.
