Shoe Quality Inspections: How to Inspect a Shoe
The first step, review the shoe packaging. Confirm the information on the box end label matches the shoe Color/Model/Size. Check any hang tags to make sure they are correct for the shoe.
The second, check them for symmetry. Holding the shoe from the bottom, roll the uppers together side by side to check the symmetry.
The third, looking inside. You need run your hand around the collar, feel for any lump, bumps or glue, then inspect the tongue lining for wrinkles and lumps, finally make a quick check of the laces.
These three steps above are the simple inspection processes.
