Thanks for the breakdown. No I definitely have my size nailed down after several pairs. I’m looking forward to what you guys will come up with!Hey! Glad you asked.
Twice a year we do what we call a trunk show. In February, the materials used are usually non-shell. In September, always shell. This year, we felt like we were rushing to get out ducks in a row so we opted to push the show back to the very end of October/beginning of November.
We give you a menu of sorts of styles, colors, soles, and sometimes a few other methods of customization to choose from, and usually several of the options are not typically available to you in our standard line. Within the constraints of that menu you can create something specific to your personal tastes. We usually quote 12 weeks, but some people see a quicker turnaround. There are no discounts of any kind, but there are also no upcharges for your special makeup. It's just $695 for shoes and $725 for boots...usual shell prices. No returns or exchanges, so this is not the time to take sudden gambles with size. Definitely square that away before ordering.
We choose a handful of "host stores" that hold mixer events on kickoff day and have physical samples for you to touch and look at, and the host stores always change slightly from event to event, but EVERY store is armed with a ton of photos and references so you are 100% crystal clear on what you're getting into before pulling the trigger, even if your favorite store isn't a "host". Lots of customers email and call in, so you don't even really have to visit anyone in person. Just support any store you like, and if you don't have one, I can link you with one.
Speaking of which...it's about that time. I should be announcing soon. Stay tuned!
