Topic - Would you buy an old shoe

EveningWind - on 29 May 2013
Hello,
I am knew here so nice to meet you all,

i am looking for an opinion on a matter of buying an old shoe.
So i need to buy a new summer mountaineering shoe.
i dont have a lot of options around where i live ,so things come down to this:
http://www.rei.com/product/748161/raich ... boots-mens

Raichle All Degree Pro SL - a very good shoe but the thing is
1. Raichle has been sold to Mammut for like 5 years now
2. The shoe has been in the warehouse of the store since approx. 2009

there aren't any deformation on the sole and it looks very good and new.
i couldn't see no flaws on the connection area of the sole to the boot.

would you buy a shoe that old?
what are the damages an unused sustains during the storage - given that it has been stored in proper conditions.

thanks
