I don't think there is any bait and switch going on. There is just very limited information on their service boot (which isn't even on their website, that I could find). People that bought it understood that it was the non-distressed version of the W+H collab. However, its easy to get it mixed up because the only information online you can find is of the collab version. Insert 100s of questions about sizing, last, sole, distressing, sizing, color, sizing, chances are some people are going to be getting something different than what was pictured in their mind.
