Example: Size 7 – Ships by 1/30/14, means that the boots will ship out to you no later than January 30, 2014. Once the order is placed, your credit card is charged immediately. Pre-order Cancellations incur a $30 processing fee.

Ships 30-120 Days:

If the style and size shows “Ships 30-120 Days,” this means the item is not in stock, but will be on back order.
