Pre-order items are new and upcoming items that are not yet available in our store. Pre-orders allow us to keep our stock low but still allow our customers to purchase the products they want. You place an order for the size and color that you want and then we place the order with our manufacturer. It's a win-win! Pre-order items will be on sale for 24-48 hours and typically ship within 2-4 weeks from the order date.
