Lead Times

About Lead Times

Much consideration goes into determining how long each boot takes to go through production. All lead times are determined based on the date the order is placed. 

Factors Nicks considers are:

  • Order (Date & Time) Submitted
  • Number of recent orders
  • Number of orders in process
  • Supplier availability
  • Current and upcoming seasons (i.e. fire, harvest, winter seasons)
  • Labor Required
  • Fit/Last Availability
  • Other misc. factors.

These lead times are not determined lightly, while we believe they are accurate they are only an estimate. Actual build and delivery times may vary, and are subject to change.
