I completely agree that you should get what you ordered. My point was that they are actually quite similar - as per the picture, and because I own both. My point was not that you should keep the wrong product. As others have said, I think Leffot will make it right. Deal with them directly.
I have black chelseas on the 202. I have tried them in the 202 and the 82. I, like you, personally prefer the 202 for the chelsea.
Thanks, I didn't mean to sound combative...this is just such a bummer. It would be fine if I was in New York. Now I'll have to shell out some more money to mail the shoes back, there may be duties levied by the US customs, and at the end of the day, I will be at the mercy of Leffot to refund what they deem is right. I feel I should be refunded not only my initial payment of US$1,185 but also the duties I paid in my country, plus the cost of shipping them back. And I should be indemnified from any duties that rise if the US customs detains the parcel on its return. That is exclusively Leffot's problem as it's their mistake.
On a positive note, I got an email from Leffot acknowledging and apologising for the mistake made. And they have offered to refund my payment plus duties and shipping. I just don't know what will happen if the stuff gets stopped in US customs for duties or misplaced enroute (they didn't talk about that).
Until Leffot gets back to me on the issue of who will bear the duties in the US, I will have to reserve judgement on how to proceed.
I am really annoyed with this mess. This 82 Last looks fine from a profile view but when viewed from above it really elongates the foot visually in a most unnatural way. Aaaaargh!
It's possible they may have, luckily my screenshot was taken before they changed it. But I am glad they did so no one else can be misled as I was.
