Answer My Talus' are not seconds. When I first considered buying these boots from STP, I went to the REI website to do some research on them. The Talus model that they were selling "on the floor" was Talus 2. I therefore looked at their clearance page and found these boots...at a higher price than at STP. While you would have to ask Customer Service at STP to verify (I'd suggest calling a live person), my boots do not have any defects that would lead me to believe they are seconds.
Answer These are closeouts, not 2nds.
