After receiving the wrong size boots and laces in November 2015 I was told I would have to wait a while and they would be exchanged in March time of this year, since then I have heard nothing from Orca!?!?!?

Hi everyone, It's almost been a year since our very first campaign on Kickstarter. We really do hope that you are having a joy with your boots & shoes and we just wanted to say thank you very much for supporting us along the way. We are still learning each day in developing a better footwear, and your feedback have been utmost helpful and appreciated. We have upgraded the packaging now, and quality control regarding eyelet of the boots had been re-evaluated. Next month on June 17th, we will be launching our second Kickstarter campaign, and we hope that you will check it out and see our improvement, because without you guys & girls we wouldn't have achieve this great achievement & experience. Once again, thank you so much. Regards,
Dwityanov

I would recommend upgrading the packaging. I got my boots a few weeks ago and the brown paper was almost completely off and there was a 4" hole in the box. The boots look to be fine but the packaging was not well thought out.
The boots are awesome by the way. I have already recommended them to friends and family.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but I have another issue to report with the boots. The midsole rubber is beginning to delaminate. I've worn the boots for 4 days doing regular around campus walking (IE no hiking, or running, or anything especially demanding) and have been treating the boots pretty gently. We did have some rain a few days ago but I managed to keep the boots reasonably dry so I don't think water has anything to do with the delamination. The boots are delaminating from the middle towards the front and back on the outside edge. Both boots are delaminating in the same area but it's quite a bit more separated/pronounced on the right shoe. I only noticed this a few minutes ago so I'm not sure how long they'd been delaminating or what exactly started it. So far as I can tell, no one action caused them to delaminate as I've been pretty careful... Hopefully this is just a lemon =/ All that being said, the boots still look fantastic but as has been mentioned, quality control really should be re-evaluated. With a durable product, these boots would be incredibly competitive with the current offerings.

I went to my local cobbler to have my boots fixed. I told him to replace all the metal hooks as it maybe loose as the first one, and without any hesitation he pulled one off with ease. You guys may want to look at your quality control for those hooks. Other than that like I mentioned before it fits perfectly and it looks nice. :D

Review from Kickstarter
My shipment was with the November 24 batch and I just received my boots today, 12/7 in New York. Although I don't really know much about boots, the boots look and fit great! I am very happy with my purchase. My package came undamaged, but you may want to look into a stronger box for future shipments.
Additionally instructions about how to care for the boots would be nice.
Thank you very much!

According to you records you posted my order on 24 November. Tracking indicates my order left Indonesia on 26 November but provides no further information. It is now 7 December with no order. Is there any way you can check this? Thanks,

Thank you for your feedback @Stephen, it's an issue that we are discussing right now with our cobbler. As for the waxes and oils, we don't really have something to recommend it to you, as we have been using local product that are only available in our country, sorry about that. Once again thank you so much for your advice, and have a good day!

Hi there @Dennis i'm suggesting to go to your local cobbler shop to repair the damaged metal hooks, the hooks are easy to repair. We are truly sorry for the inconvenience.

Review from Kickstarter
The top right metal hooks on both boots popped off when lacing them up. Any suggestions?
Stephen Hoefler
Review from Kickstarter
I want to Piggybak @ Ralph's comment because the 4 eyelet hooks on my pacific boots were quite loose when I received the boots and will actually spin around when attempting to lace them. It hasn't been a problem for me and I'm planning to press the rivets into place to fix the problem but, you guys might want to check with your cobblers to make sure they're taking care of that issue before you launch the webstore. Do you have any waxes or oils you can recommend for conditioning and waterproofing the boots? Thanks!
Orca Leathercraft
Review from Kickstarter
Hi there @Ralph we are so sorry to hear that. It must have been damaged during shipment, however the hooks are easy to repair. You can go to your local cobbler shop and ask them to repair it for you.
Ralph
Review from Kickstarter
I'm talking about the hooks above the eyelets. Anyway I found it. It was inside the box. I'm still disappointed that it's already damage before I even get to it.

Hi. I've received my shoes and I like it. It fits really nicely. I got one issue with my shoe. When I received it one of the metal 'hooks?' is missing.

Hi there @Sam, shipping to United States will usually takes about 1 - 2 weeks. We will be using Indonesian Postal Service to ship all backers reward, and when your reward have reach your country, you can track it down in United States Postal Service website with the track number that we will give you through your personal email. We hope that this answer your question.
