DO NOT USE GOAT
Of all the times I’ve tried to buy shoes from GOAT, I’ve only had ONE successful transaction. And that’s only cause GOAT already had them in their storage. So one time, after buying shoes and not hearing anything for a week, the seller canceled the order and put the shoes back up for a huge markup. So after wasting all that time I had to go over to StockX and I got them without a hitch. Another time, a seller sent the wrong size of used shoes to GOAT when the shoes that were pictured were the correct size! I waited weeks until customer service notified me of this. Right now, I’ve been waiting a week for these shoes to ship after the seller had confirmed them, but now it’s showing that they’re unconfirmed. I already know I’m getting flaked yet again. It’s absolutely appalling that simply buying a pair of shoes has to be this difficult and irritating. Customer service has been little help, taking forever to update me on these situations on what’s going on. If you’re reading this, STAY AWAY FROM GOAT. The marketplace is full to the brim with flakers of every kind. Every purchase from StockX on the other hand went fine and the shoes got to me FAST. So I wholeheartedly recommend using StockX over GOAT. They may not have as great of a variety as GOAT, but you can rest easy knowing that you will surely get your shoes without any problem.
The most unprofessional shopping experience
I ordered a pair of yeezys from goat spending over 800$ I waited 5 days for an update as it kept saying they were waiting for the seller to ship the shoes.. after 5 days I opened a complaint ticket asking them to cancel my order if they did not ship that day as I needed them for a birthday.. they did not even respond to my email just updated the status to arrived at goat ( I almost think this was just to shut me up) after waiting another 5 days (which they say it takes 2-3 days to verify) I opened another ticket voicing my concern that they just updated the ticket to keep me quiet I got a response 2 days later saying that I had caused THEM confusion by opening another ticket when I had to because they labeled my first resolved when it was not!! They told me I would hear from them in another 48 hours.. I waited and still had no update.. goat has now had my shoes “verifying” them for over week! So reached out because I hadn’t heard from them in 48 hours like they claimed I would. I got no response or even apology.. just an update from ups that my shoes have finally shipped over 2 weeks later when it is supposed to take 10 days to get your shoes. I am appalled.. please beware when thinking about using this site! They are not true to their word nor care about customers.
Horrible Customer Service
I recently sold a pair of shoes on Goat. The shoes were new, but for some reason had a white marking on the sole making it appear that I had worn them outdoors and lied about their condition. When they reviewed it, they identified the problem, labeled them to the buyer of the shoes as “used”, and said they’d send me pictures of the issue. I never received pictures and yet I was pestered to lower the price of my shoes to convince the buyer to follow through with the purchase. I asked why they wouldn’t tell me what the issue was and still didn’t get pictures. Again, they didn’t give me any reason as to why they said they were used. Finally, after asking for a third time, I got fed up and selected the option to not lower the price. Of course, the buyer being misinformed by Goat, decided not to buy the shoes. At this point I had the option to consign them, or have them returned. I chose to return them and they charged me $16 for shipping. This is absolutely ridiculous seeing as I wasn’t given any good option after they had already screwed me, on top of the fact that the original shipping was free on my end. Not only did they waste my time, but my money as well. I do not recommend selling through Goat because if there’s any problem that arises, I guarantee they will handle it horribly.
Horrible Customer Service
GOAT at this point is a major consignment company with many obvious competitors, so at this point the customer service should be held to a higher standard. It’s absolutely horrible. I’ve had situations where I would have a buyer, but couldn’t sell the sneaker (hitting sell would crash the app) because of an error with the app which wasn’t fixed until the app was updated hours later. You guys send out LATE email response messages hours later encouraging customers to do the regular old trouble shooting (restart your phone, Erase and re-download the app etc.) when the issues are within your app. The response time has been really bad. If not hours days later. The latest issue is sellers doing everything that is asked (shipping out on time etc.) and when it’s time to transfer their payments the app is not sending out verification codes. You don’t offer email verification and you can’t change or update the number without contacting GOAT via email and ironically enough, you guys are horrible at responding to emails in a timely matter. Definitely considering deleting the app once and for all. Issues are too common as of late and it’s a headache reaching out and receiving help or simply getting a response when there’s issues.
Shoes purchased are not promised
Paid for a pair of sneakers that were confirmed by seller. Seller never sent the shoes after I received a confirmation that the shoes were on their way through UPS. Seller basically reneged on the deal and now the shoes cost way more and the Goat says they'll refund me. Now they expect me to pay more on a new bid when I'm already paying a premium on the shoe, instead of them paying the difference on the new order after confirming that the original shoes were in transit. Why should I miss out after they confirmed the shoe was coming. If they had a better system I could've possibly bought the sneaker from another seller the same price or lower. I already have purchased other sneakers and want to buy more but this left a sour taste. Poor customer service because in a store if something you bought was damaged or misplaced you would get the same item at the price you bought it, might I add, a discount. I'll edit this review if it turns out that they did the right thing and honor my initial purchase.
My 1st time shopping with goat for the hyper royal 13 retro’s size 12 was better than all the times I stood in line for the jay’s! I been rocking jay’s since the early 80’s and when I saw these coming soon on another app I wasn’t impressed but on the day of the sale I was tuned in and had to have them but they sold out everywhere I usually get a ticket in 2 different states and 99% of the time my name get pulled so I remember a friend of mine put me on to goat and I thought it was cool back then this was in August of 2017, didn’t think I would ever pay more than regular price but I did and the process took less than a week the emails were on point keep me updated and my joints official!!! I will be letting all my people’s know that goat so far in my book is top of the line I look forward to future business with them I wanna create a good reliable relationship with them! it allways feels good when your money is well spent and in this case I’m completely satisfied with my purchase thanks Goat!
New more like restored /goat credit?🙄
Ordered the Air max 90 viotech original color way , was just 2 weeks ago called footlockers all around they all claimed they didn’t have them (even though footlocker owns this app)so I decided to go online couldn’t find them on the footlocker or Nike app so downloaded other shoe apps GOAT ,stadium goods and stock x looked at vids on all just to make sure they where legit an they past the test. so I decided to order a pair of the viotechs from Goat Ordered new shoes and express shipment they came pretty fast no complaints there. But when I opened the box my heart sank , one shoe was completely damaged on the front clearly visible and the other was leaning off center! I ordered brand new shoes and appeared they sent restored, so not even 15 min after getting them I’m returning them filing complaints etc. they take days to accept my return , no explanation as to how these passed a quality test and they won’t send you your money back you can only get goat credit (why would I continue to buy from you guys with a screw so badly) not only that 30 dollars was deducted from my credit for “shipping” because of there lazy screwup. Hopefully I can get sum in store somewhere because the other apps seem to be just as shady. Be safe people 💯
Always on point
I’ve recently jumped in to the sneaker game and as everyone in it knows the level of fakes is getting to be off the charts. You can’t just go and buy a sneaker on eBay or other outlets without being nervous about its authenticity. This site gives you the go around to take that worry off of you. The level of insane profit that can be generated in basically 24 hrs after a shoe releases opens the door for the best fakes . Some of the shoes are going for 1000x what they are retailing for so the fakes are just about perfect and are getting to be harder to spot . If I’m going to throw $500 on a shoe I definitely want what it’s supposed to be. I tried this site before I had ever heard a great deal about it and always been beyond happy with the results every time. I have never not got exactly what I was supposed to and for that this is my main go to and will continue to. I’m waiting for a pair off OFF-WHITE AM97 now and I know they will be perfect when they get to me without question.
Do not trust this app, they sold me fakes and I contacted them and they kept saying they were real and wouldn’t even offer me a refund. I showed them pictures and they kept saying they were real AND not used. The last thing I got from them were definitely used. I bought 5 pairs f shoes in the last month and I let them know I was very good customer for them and the best they could say to me was that it was real and not used and that all sales were final. I want my money back, I have spent a lot on shoes within the last month and a full refund is the only way I will continue to be a customer. I also asked to speak to someone who was important and had more power than the people that respond to the emails and they wouldn’t connect me with someone. Literally last week I was saying how much I preferred Goat over StockX and this definitely makes me want to shop at StockX more and on top o that they have clothes that they sell and the best part is they have refunded me my money the full amount when I had a problem. As of now until my problem is resolved I highly recommend to NOT buy from Goat, instead go to StockX. I would love to change my review to help the picture of Goat but as of now do not shop here.
I bought a pair of glow yeezy a and a pair of cloud yeezys. Both pairs did not fit. I paid for the “fast ship” I paid 290 for the cloud yeezys. When I returned them for the correct size they only gave me goat credit for 200 dollars. So I asked them where the other 90 went. Apparently that fast shipping you paid for to get them quicker is non refundable PLUS you have to pay for it again in order to exchange the shoe for the correct size. Complete rip off will never do buisness with GOAT ever again. So they took 200 from me just for shipping and I don’t even have a pair of shoes in my hand and I have 800 in GOAT credit from the shoes I have to pay another 200 in order to get the shoes on time. So 400 dollars JUST IN SHIPPING! Be careful spending the money on “instant ship” because if you get the shoe and it doesn’t fit and you want to exchange... you don’t get the money back. So when you exchange them you have to buy that “instant ship” all over again. But they don’t tell you that. I want all my money back. Oh and not to mention! Even when I paid for the instant ship it still took forever. Don’t reccommend buying from goat. Read the reviews for yourself. First and last time ever buying from GOAT the JOKE
Overall Totally Classy
I am always wary about purchasing anything online—esp shoes. I did a little research first and based on what I read, I chose GOAT and STOCKX (I found the latter company to be very disrespectful and overall unprofessional!). Every sneaker I have ordered from GOAT has been processed and delivered in a timely manner. One order I declined after purchasing bc the Sender did not specify a missing box lid (this was reported during the Authentication process)-GOAT gave me an immediate credit which I used immediately to purchase a different pair. Every package I have received in the past has been tip-top. Unwrapping each new box I receive, I know that I don’t have to worry about what’s inside bc I know it’s exactly what I ordered. I find GOAT to be a very professional business that delivers a classy package. I love the quality of product and that little signature card they put in every box. I strongly recommend this company!
Return and Refund Deficiency 🚮
The biggest fault that GOAT has is the return policy. A seller has 72 hours to opt out of a deal where as a buyer only has 3 hours to cancel a bid. I understand the fluctuation in pricing but if you’ve already agreed to sell somebody a shoe at a certain price unless that shoe sells out a seller should not be able to back out of any deal. I ordered a pair of Vapormax Fly Knit Lasers and 4 days after my bid was accepted I received an email saying that the seller backed out. So I have yet to try and purchase them again. At the same time I also had a $345 bid on the Travis Scott Catcus Jack Retro 4’s that was accepted. Again with no notice at all was I told that the seller backed out of the deal yesterday. I am now reading everyone else’s reviews to find out they’re not being refunded money, they’re being sold fake shoes, there’s damage done to brand new shoes and the overall customer service is absolutely horrible. I am terribly afraid that I’m going to be sold a fake shoe, will have no way of being refunded my money and I will have no one to speak to about it. Whether everything works out or not after this purchase I WILL NEVER ORDER FROM GOAT AGAIN and the app will be deleted from my phone.
Worst service ever
I had listed my pair of yeezys on this app because I heard a lot of good things about it. So I list them and everything thing was going smoothly. Someone offered to buy them off of me and I accepted. I go and drop off the shoes at the goat drop off location instead of shipping them. The next day I get an email saying there was in issue with my shoe. They told me that the shoe was used and they had sent me pictures of the shoes. The shoes are literally deadstock. I’ve never worn the shoes while I had them. I only took them out the box to take pictures of them. So the buyer refused to buy them because they were “used” so I basically lost a sale. I had them consigned listing for a day and took it off and ordered them to ship it back to me. They charged me $10 just so they can ship it back to me. I ordered the shoes OVER A WEEK AGO and haven’t gotten a single email on an estimation on when I will be receiving my shoes. I contacted customer support about the issue and they said they would reply at the latest in the next 42 hours from when they replied to the email. I haven’t gotten ANYTHING at all. Worst service ever and I won’t EVER list another pair of shoes on this app
Waste of time AND money
I purchased some shoes from GOAT. They sent me shoes with a yellow sole, when the sole should’ve been white. Evidently whoever shipped out the order didn’t care or didn’t inspect what they were shipping. This was my first order with this company and I paid it through AfterPay. I have contacted GOAT so many times about trying to send them back and I got no response. It literally took 20 days to get an authorization to send the shoes back. Then I was authorized to get the credit once they receive the shoes back. I did not want to Credit I wanted to be refunded because I paid in installments. But today are fine, but I have to use GOATS credit because they don’t do refunds. I will never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever order from this company again. They have bad business practices and ever Denteley they do not do quality-control. I will gladly spend my 100+ dollars somewhere else. Before ordering please read the fine print before you order because they are very sneaky and tricky. Our use after pay all the time and have never ever ever had a problem until I ordered from this company. Please be very cautious. Try eBay or somewhere like that. I hate GOAT!!
Great App, Unwanted Notifications
I’ve been a dedicated Goat buyer for a few years now. I like it much more than StockX to the degree that I actually refuse to cop from StockX. But lately I’ve been getting notifications about sneakers I did not request and am not interested in, and there’s no way to disable it without disabling all notifications from the app, eliminating notifications about price drops and available sizes for the sneakers I actually want. This annoyance is pushing me to remove the Goat app from my phone for the first time in like 3 years. There really should be an option to disable the unsolicited ads. I think most people who’d be buying on a resell market would already clearly know what they want and don’t want. I don’t see the point in notifying people about sneakers they aren’t interested in, since anything they are interested in they’d request such notifications for. Goat is essentially spamming their users now. I wonder if StockX does the same, maybe it’s time to switch.

I ordered a pair of Air Max Plus, one of the latest models that came out only on the European market. They were clearly fake. They had a couple of terrible details on the outsole, but most of all the QR code on the box was not legible. My question is, who’s in charge of the authentication process? (If there is even one). I was able to get a full refund though.

DO NOT ORDER FROM THIS SITE. I ordered a pair of cleats for my son. We tried the cleats on and found them to be to small. When I returned them GOAT said because we tried them on they are now used and will not accept the return. This is horrible customer service.

Never buy shoes from GOAT before the actual release date. They don't tell you ahead of time but those shoes can have defects and they won't give you a refund. They just tell you that you can sell them to someone else. They never give you a full refund cause they take a percentage off if you try to cash your credit in. I don't think I've had fakes yet but out of 11 or 12 pair I have have some defects. Buyer beware

Terrible customer service and they will never return you back your money. They say we will refund you back the money but it will be a credit for future purchases !!!!!!!
I bought 2 pairs of shoes from them and they didn't fit, so I returned them back the next next day and they advised initially they will refund me back the money. When i checked my credit card statement a week later, there was no credit refunded. So i wrote them back and they said their return policy, they will never give you back your money. They are simply stealing your money without you knowing and without any prior notice.
Also the credit posted on your account on their website is 70% what you paid them originally.
Don't you ever buy from them.

Buyer beware: if you’re considering purchasing shoes as a gift for someone else, DO NOT use GOAT. They don’t have exact shipping/arrival dates and have a 3-day return policy. That’s not a typo: 3 days. So if the gift recipient either doesn’t like the shoes or, in my case, the size doesn’t fit, you’re SOL. I contacted them regarding this (23 days after receiving the shoes—less than 30 days, the typical timeline for most respectable businesses—still in perfect condition), explaining the situation and their only solution was to become a seller myself…No return or exchange option.

I got the fakest shoes on the market that got passes their “authenticity” process. How is the most pungent smell of acetone going to get passed you? That is a dead give away! First time buying from GOAT and they try and finesse me like that. y’all ain’t the “goat” trust me.

I've so far ordered five pair of shoes from them. Three pair I've had no issues with . Two pair the sellers didn't bother shipping the shoes to the goat. Basically taking the money and never sent the shoes. Contact support is horrible they take forever to respond. I just want my money back I don't even want the shoes any more

Ordered a pair of sneakers, when they arrived it was in poor conditions, it had scuff marks and creases. I contacted customer service they offered me $30 if I kept them and a refund in store credit if I returned them, I wasn’t offered a full refund in original payment even though it was not my fault that the sneakers was in poor condition. I will never use this service again, as they allow sneakers that are in poor condition to pass the validation process. I will use Stock X instead as I bought sneakers from them before and never had a problem.

I don’t think this app is legit. I returned an item to them almost 2-months ago and they still haven’t responded to my messages / emails everywhere; through their app, Instagram, Facebook you name it. I had to raise this now with BBB especially after reading the reviews of other users who who had horrible experiences with GOAT. If you think I’m a hater then just go check customers messages on their Instagram page. I started to think it’s either a scam or they have an extremely lousy and incompetent customer service!!!!! Don’t let the visuals and fancy AI of this app fool you
