    Hard to find legits tho. Literally ever pair I've even considered has looked dubious.

    Will keep looking.

    It's absolutely worth it but the OG with the all-white sole is last years version so literally no option other than wait for a restock that may never happen.

    Matches is a hit or miss for me. Had an experience where they sent me some different from what I ordered and basically had to go through hell to get them to send me the correct item. Ended up filing a chargeback with my card provider. I've placed 3 orders with them, the first was good, the second was the aforementioned incident and third was good.

    I’ve only had good experiences with matches but haven’t ordered from them in some time.

    I’d rather order from Matches than some scrub on Grailed.

    Yes i thought it was odd too. But when I spoke to my bank they told me recently they had a lot of fraudulent transaction especially from the uk shipping to us. People placing orders then open a claim with the bank to dispute transaction.
    that likely why matchesfasion asked to provide id.
    But when I called to figure out why they canceled my order..they transferred me to the security lady which was telling me I provided a fake id. That’s would blew my
    Mind. I send their customer service a long email. But they haven’t responded yet.

    I know this seems unreal, but whatever..they ain’t getting my business anymore.
    Their response to my email to customer service was funny too.
    “I’m sorry to hear your last transaction did not pass security screening”.

    What a nice way of saying oh we believe you provided us with a fake ID and try to scam someone with their credit card. Lol
    I’ve been called a lot of things in my life but basically callin me a scammer is prolly a new low lol.

    Whoa, asking for ID is standard practice for 1st time customers at Matches?

    If so, no need for me to browse that site anymore lol.

    i don't remember doing that for Matches but eons ago when I used to order from UK websites, I think one of the first times, I had to provide that info to the US customs so they would release my order

    I believe it was some boots from Paul Smiths UK website and maybe the leather was being held on customs and they had to make sure but it was like a one time thing and haven't had to worry about it since

    these days it's much easier and many can just paypal through their orders and not worry much but that was the most extensive process i had to go through and it was the government, not the store

    Hmm, that's true. I paypal everywhere it's accepted, so maybe the ID thing can be mitigated.

    But still, no way in the world am I sending a photo of my ID to an online retailer (let alone EMAILING it, of all things lol).

    Sometimes orders show up as fraud or potentially fraudulent and when this happens, it's common practice for the store to ask the customer for ID to verify their identity. My Customer Care team does this all the time with our stores. Not sure why people are so averse to this; your payment information is encrypted and we can't see anything other than the last 4 digits.

    Ya those are definitely not as popular as the actual harness boots. The crepe sole and clunkier shape is what I feel turns off a lot of people on those. It's the same thing with the "Nevada" chelsea boots. They're a bit more bulbous in the toe and the overall shape isn't as sleek.
