Their email was in response to my email requesting what exactly were going to be sent to me since I ordered all 3 types in 41 and I had originally assumed that the white mids and the patents were achilles and the black leather were the courts. Any thoughts regarding the styling of the courts vs the achilles. I preferred the achilles but some people have stated that the courts were more "classic" appearing (also maybe a little roomier in the toebox vs the achilles).

I havent worn the courts but from seeing them in person, the leather was nicer than the achilles imo, plus I thought the styling was kind of cool with the stitching across the toe and the overall shape. I love both so you cant go wrong. Also for what it is worth the white mid courts are very sought after CP's among those who wear CP's, they are kind of rare... only place I know you can get them as of today, is Revolve. I didnt try the courts on but I have also heard they arent quite as narrow as the Achilles. Again, not sure when u emailed them but when I spoke with them this is the exact stock they told me they had as of today:
Achilles black patent low
Achilles black regular low
Court mid white

However yesterday they prob. did have achilles in white as well as other styles but it didnt sound like there was much left today...

Thanks for your opinion. I guess the staff are even confused about what they stock since they seemed to have given you different info than what was emailed to me today. Your info corresponds to my impression of what the girl told me and she was pretty adamant that they only had "3 styles" available yesterday in any size (about 1pm est) though what constitutes a "style" maybe is unclear. Maybe she did not know the difference between the black low achilles and the black low courts? Originally, she told me yesterday when I phone ordered that they were all achilles (later corrected to your info) and that is all they had in my size (41) but the email today seems to go against that. I am thinking that they were probably inundated with unexpected calls/orders for these sneakers and probably got a little confused. I guess I'll find out next week (also it seems that they charged me less for shipping than was quoted ($12.60 instead of $15)

Hahah, sounds like everyone is getting mixed answers. When I called yesterday morning (~11AM EST) the SA reported they did not have any white left only black patent achilles low. Then later in the afternoon when I called (~4:30 EST) another SA told me they had White Achilles Mid, Black Patent Achilles Low, and Black Court Low.

sounds like we are all in for a surprise i am acutally hoping i get the mid courts in white as opposed to the achilles.

*ugh* going to call them again and beg to have them ship to Canada, I need me some patent low
post #96 of 289
ok this has me kind of worried now...

recalling my convo w/ the salesperson, she asked, in response to my inquiry about BLACK COURT LOWs, "not the patent one right"? which makes me wonder if she was looking at the black achilles low, because there are no black court lows in patent if i'm not mistaken...

can someone confirm if they actually had black court lows????

they did but i think some salespeople just lumped them together with the regular achilles...so i'd make sure to ask if the pair you're ordering has a captoe/looks kinda like chucks, etc.

they had 3 styles - white achiles, black patent achiles and black court shoe. court shoes dont come in patent..

Not to be contrary but my email today said this "The white mids are courts along with the low black leather. The black patents are achilles. These are all 3 styles that we have." This was in response to my email asking them what exactly did they ship me from my order yesterday am. Their response could also be interpreted as what they have NOW but I did not pursue it since they already shipped mine. I guess there might be a lot of trading going on next week once we get our orders. I suspect that they probably had at least 4 styles but due to the inexperience of the staff in dealing with these sneakers, they might have all looked the same. Reading through the posts there appears to be eyewitnesses of a white achilles mid and the black courts and I think they only make the patents in achilles form. Anyone confirm that they actually saw all or any of the models first hand since the sales people appear to be giving conflicting info even on the in stock status?

When I called them yesterday at around 3 PM, they said they only had White Mid Courts, and something about Black lows. I wasn't paying attention to the blacks because I was interested in the White Achilles Mids only, but they ran out of them, or just never had them to begin with, so I just go the White Mid Courts.

anyway to order these via email? Calling sounds like a pain in the ass and confusing

no, calling wasnt confusing at all, they asked what size I was went away for a few minutes and read off what they had in stock for my size... that was it.
