Q: How do pre orders work?

A: Pre – orders allow customers to secure sizes to avoid disappointment after releases, simply add the item you wish to pre-order to cart and check out. Once we receive the item, it will be shipped out to you. Pre-orders become available to purchase a week before the actual release of the item. There are limited pre–order slots available, once these are sold out, pre – orders are closed.

We do normally have items for sale after release, but sizing is not guaranteed and pricing may vary.

If for any reason we cannot obtain your item in the size you requested, you will receive 100% refund. Any other information will be in the pre-order product description
