Epaulet Chelsea Boot GMTO - Suede & Couro Chromo Steerhide

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

 

Hi Gents,

 

Until November 18th, we're doing a massive Chelsea boot preorder project.  These gorgeous boots are the latest addition to our growing lineup of in-house, Portugese made footwear.  They feature Blake Rapid stitching + crepe soles and we are offering them in 6 vibrant suedes (at $275) and 3 brilliant shades of Portugese Couro Cromo steerhide (at $285).  You'll also have the option to add a matching belt for $60 when you place your order.  We've got a huge amount of really descriptive copy and photos on the medium.com page but here's the idea in a nutshell:

 

1) Your preorder is held with a $110 non-refundable, non-transferrable deposit. 


2) The full price per unit is $275 for the suede Chelsea boot and $285 for the Couro Cromo Chelsea Boot.


3) Preorders will be accepted until midnight EST Wed, Nov 18th. Size and color changes can be requested before November 18th, but not afterwards. Once orders are placed, they cannot be canceled or refunded.


4) Delivery will occur between March and April of 2015.


5) Once the boots are received, you will be notified via email and the balance may be paid online. Final payment must be received within 30 days of notification, or your deposit will be forfeited and the shoes will be put up for general sale. 


6) Shipping to US addresses is included in the price. For International customers, we request that you choose "Store Pickup" as your shipping option (resulting in no shipping fee charged now).


7) European orders will be fulfilled by our affiliate in Austria, so your shipment will wholly occur within the European Union. The shipping price for this is $25 for delivery throughout the EU. 


8) All preorder sales are final. When the shoes are delivered, we regretfully cannot accept any returns or exchanges on these purchases. 


9) Our quoted delivery period for these boots is March/April 2016. However, we're working with both a small tannery and a small factory. Things can happen, and factors outside of our control could cause the delivery to be delayed. If the delivery is somehow delayed past May 30th, 2016, then customers will be offered the opportunity to cancel their preorder and receive a full refund of their deposit.

 

Everything is further broken down in the following links:

If 9.5 EP Gats out the box have about an inch of space in the toes and slightly tight around the wide part of the foot with medium thick socks I should get the same size in the Chelseas???

Thought I could resist...

 

...then I succumbed and kopped the classic black couro at 1am last night. At least I can wear it with the Thedi MA-1 when it comes :)

The Chelsea last is a bit shorter, so I would still advise a 9.5 in these. Width may feel snug on the first wear or so, but the combo of soft leathers and blake-rapid construction mean that this can break in very quickly in both the width and the height. You may need to start the process with a thinner sock though. 

 

So yes, I'd say a 9.5 in these.

@Epaulet just curious, are these on track? or do you foresee a delay

Given that there have been no updates of any kind since November, is there any chance that the boots will be shipped in the next 11 days, or will you start processing refunds immediately?

hes been providing updates in the actual Epaulet thread (I know...why not here).

 

Last time I checked, maybe a week or two ago has said it would be shipping a day or two (from the day of that update)
