Third Choice: What is it actually?

The defects of Third Choice models may limit the function of the shoe: for example, a seam may be open or beauty marks make the Wildling model fall out of the norm - for this reason, Third Choice models are 40% off. The right to return the goods remains unaffected.
The shoes themselves are marked as "Third Choice" in the store and can be added to the shopping cart together with other Wildlings or accessories. The discount will be deducted automatically. Please note: The models have a Third Choice © stamp, but don't worry: it appears on the inside, not the outside.

Below are sample images of the error categories with explanations.
