Woo Hoo!!!! Just called my local Nordstrom store and they are price matching them and shipping them to me. Tried first with live chat and she would not do it. My size is available but she said she put it in the cart and it's not available so she wouldn't do it....so I called my local store and he did it for me! Yipppee!!!!!
FWIW: Only the Nordstrom warehouse has these boots. According to the SA who I spoke with none of the stores received this particular style. If someone from a store orders for you, then it's from the warehouse (whose inventory is displayed online). If your size is not available online, then it's not available at all.
Disclaimer: The SA may have been misinformed so it may be worthwhile to inquire anyway.
