Tyler: Hey Ark, I have an order that has 2 backordered items. I was told they would ship July 1st (they didnt) then I was told July 5th (they didnt), then I was told July 9th. Today being the 10th, and I still havent received any shipping info. Can you help with this?
Ark A.: I will be happy to assist with this. One moment please while I lookup the order information.
Ark A.: Thank you for holding. The Nike Flyknit Racer (NIK1505) will indeed ship on 07/22. However, it appears the Mens Nike Flyknit Lunar1+ (NIK1544) is on an extended backorder with no known ship date. There is a rather larger backlog of pending orders.
Tyler: So why keep giving ship dates knowing that it will continue to be pushed back?
Ark A.: The ship dates that are being sent are the purchase order dates established by our buyers. Our systems are designed to email this information, but they are unaware of the number of backlogged orders.
Ark A.: The Nike Flyknit Lunar1+ (NIK1544) has been difficult to obtain as there is extremely high demand, and we are only able to get a few pairs at a time.
Tyler: Should I expect the Lunars to be cancelled since there is no known ship date?
Tyler: And I should probably also expect my Racers to be pushed back as well?
Ark A.: I am confident in the 07/22 ship date. As we will get a large allotment delivered to us, enough to fulfill this order. The Flyknit Lunar1+ (NIK1544) will most likely be canceled, as I have seen several orders for them be canceled during the last few weeks.
So he basically guaranteed my Racers will ship on the 22nd (I'll believe it when it happens...). And said my Lunars will most likely get cancelled (even though I have gotten 3 different ship dates for them).
