While we don't have specifics on the reason that a product is labeled as 2nds, it usually is due to minor cosmetic blemishes or irregularities which do not affect the fit, performance, or longevity of the item. Label is usually clipped by the manufacturer. A small flaw means big savings.

I had forgotten that they were seconds and until I got this question I would have never known. So to answer your questions, no noticeable flaws and the integrity of the boot is unaffected. Also, my son loves them. Really easy to get on and off while staying on very well at the same time. Hope this helps.
