I'm okay with waiting a couple of months for Forbes to get their supply and if I do I'll end up paying about $100 less after shipping and import fees, which is definitely nice. I talked to their a customer service rep named Alastair, he assured me that they will eventually receive stock of the boot saying "I just can't commit to timeframe. We will certainly have them in at some point but the waiting list is quite long."
Part of me is still worried that I may not end up getting a pair. He says he'll receive stock, which I believe, but didn't say whether he would receive enough to cover my pre-order as well. I've never purchased Crockett & Jones shoes before, so I'm not exactly sure how it works with them. When they release a popular product to they keep producing it as long as there's demand or do they do limited runs of certain models, then move onto something else?
Any help from C&J veterans would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
