Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How long will it take to get my boots\shoes?
A. Transit time will vary by location and shipping option selected. Orders are typically processed within 24 business hours. Please note that weekends and holidays are not included in both the processing and transit times so these may delay your order depending on when it was placed. For example if your order was placed on a Friday evening it may not process for shipping until the following Monday. We do our very best to get your order to you the fastest we can and will sometimes choose a shipping method that is different than what is chosen to get your order there faster, even it if it costs us a few extra dollars. Normal transit times to the US for smaller items is about 2-3 days and for larger items like platform boots it could take 2-6 days. If your order contains larger items like boots or shoes  and smaller items like clothing or leather gear we may ship the separately to get the smaller items to you faster. 
Q. How much will shipping cost?
A. This depends on where the merchandise is going and how much it weighs. The best way to get the shipping cost is to add an item to your shopping cart and then go to the "estimate shipping cost" link in the cart. This will give you the estimated cost and transit time. For international shipping you will need to create your account prior to getting a shipping estimate. Once this is done you can add an item to your shopping cart, click on "checkout" and you will be given the exact shipping cost without having to checkout.
