I've developed a serious crush on Saint Laurent Niki boots (black or cognac leather) recently. I visited the store in my city (Milan) last week where they told me that almost all sizes are sold out and I could have signed up for the waiting list. I visited the store again yesterday to try some ready-to-wear items on and bought baggy white jeans, this time with new SA. Then I saw new beige thigh high boots in velvet (I don't know the name of the model, it's not displayed on e-store either) that were similar to Niki but had different heels and asked the SA if my size was in stock. She brought the boots, I tried them on and they looked very nice to be honest, but I still prefer Niki. So I told the SA that I was already on the waiting list for Niki boots and would just wait for my turn. And as a response she smiled sarcastically and said "Good luck". The way she said that seemed to me to be really offensive; in fact, I think she meant you are never going to get the boots. I thought maybe I just misunderstood her and she didn't really mean that, moreover that her face expressions seemed to be very odd to me during the whole time. So, it's my first experience of being on the waitlist at a luxury store, so if you've been on a waitlist for any Saint Laurent product, please share your experience, it will be very helpful. I would have just waited for the boots without many questions if my SA had not been so sarcastic about it, but now I am having doubts about the waiting list. Do you think I should try and contact other stores in Italy as well to have more chance of getting the boots?
