Website looks slick but contains plenty of grammar mistakes and their prices seem too good to be true. Does anyone have experience with this store?
Thanks

    apxn98: good tip, I didn't know you could look up that information.

    At least the returns policy makes their intention to rip you off pretty clear.

    "To return an item, you must email us and inform us of the reason. We will then provide you with further instructions.
    Once the items were returned, we will credit your original method of payment, excluding 29% re-stocking/processing fee and US$30 return fee. All shipping costs associated with the return of goods are the responsibility of the consumer.
    Before enjoying easy exchange & return policy, you must contact us for returning shipping address before sending our Oakley Sale. All items sent back to us must be in their original condition i.e. not worn, altered or washed, with all tags attached. All the returned shoes should be sent to the shipping address we email you."
