Does anyone know if back-ordered shoe charges appear on my bill when the shoe is in stock and ships, or as a pre-order? Since they don't ship for 6 weeks I was hoping my card will be charged once they hit stock. Right now I am assuming I will be charged right away. I'm going to hold off on placing the order until I get confirmation, can anybody who has placed a pre-order let me know? Also, I thought I had read these run TTS. Did you size down a full size or half size? If i'm pre-ordering I want to get this right the first time. I'm normally a 9. Thanks Go with your dress shoe size. Unless your foot is extremely wide you will not have a width issue. I wear 10.5 in Redwings, and the 10.5 Oak Streets fit like a dream. Also, your card will be charged at the time of the order. Let me know if there's anything else I can help you with.
