    Default How long did you wait for your custom boots?

    I know the wait is different for every company, but I am just curious how long people have had to wait for their boots. I ended up ordering from Dehner, and the wait time is supposed to be 8-12 weeks. I am hoping for closer to 8 weeks because I want my new boots!

    It's been years now, but I was quoted (and waited) 16 weeks for my Dehners. I think in 2004?

    I waited about 10 weeks for my La Mundials and they came on the day I was quoted.

    I think she meant she waited 16 weeks for her boots then recieved them at 16 weeks, but that was years ago so she wasn't entirely sure, not that she still hasn't received them years later haha

    I waited around 3 months for my Vogels a few years back. I don't remember the time frame I was quoted, but it was over the holidays so that may have made the wait time longer than normal.
    Of course, mine came literally a week after I found out I was going to have to take six months off from riding so my wait to ride in them was even longer.

    Tucci is usually 6-10 weeks. We placed a number of custom orders in late Jan, They are shipping from Italy this week. We have been pleasantly surprised with them coming in around 6-8 weeks as opposed to 10. However this being said, I do think that 8-10 is reasonable. Some manufacturers do also take time off during the year (holiday, etc) and shut down their plants for limited amounts of time. This could also contribute to some of the lengthier wait times.
