Troy - I ordered the Do-Wins from Pendlay about 3 months ago. I also received a different size than what I ordered (had even talked to him on thephone prior to placin ghte order). Give Glenn a call - he was great to work with. He sent me the correct size (no charge for shipping) and a shipping label to return the first pair. Good Luck!

I went through Pete Delago over at Werksan and so far I'm getting bull shit from them. They sent me the wrong shoe size than what I ordered, double charged me for shipping (I was charged for shipping in the orignal payment plus I had to pay UPS at my door) and now if I want to exchange the shoes for the proper size that I had ordered they want me to pay for shipping in both directions. I smell fecal matter.

I'll be interested to see how this pans out...

Troy,

when I ordered my Do-wins, I had to pay the brokerage fee of 45$ when it arrived at my door (maybe not exactly 45, I tried to erase that cost from my memory). My 90$ shoes turned into 150$ to ship it to Canada. I did order them from Glenn, not Werksan.
Good luck working that out.....I know the UPS guy said that I can try and dispute the amount of the brokerage fee. I couldn't be bothered to make a big deal.

shitty deal for sure, I hope it all works out.

There are a couple of places to get them in canada if this deal falls through.

Yeah well it looks like I'm stuck with a pair of shoes that are a bit too big but correct according to their size adjustment chart. And no explanation for the extra shipping costs other than it being a customs duty charged by my country.

Definitely would NEVER do business with these folks again and would recommend them to no one.

Troy - hope you can sell them on E-bay or to a friend. If you decide to get a pair that fits...Glen was awesome to work with. Also, I am looking into getting a pair of Adidas Ironwork from Dynamic Fitness. I ordered my suit from them...great customer service, great people to work with.

Ain't it grand that you can buy 850 different running and soccer shoes from the Adidas website but not their weightlifiting shoes? Seriously, talk about a bastard child. WTF.

Don't worry, though. I strongly chastised them in an email. Our worries are JUST about over.

That's because Adidas sells it's weightlifing shoes only through select dealers: In Germany for example as far as I know the only Dealer who sells Adidas is Manfred Nerlinger.
