On the Oak website, Acne's hugely popular Atacoma wedge boot is $598—or would be, if it weren't sold out. But on Acne's own website, as blog Awkward City points out, the boots are only $480—though also sold out. The moral: If they ever come back into stock, skip the Oak tax and get them straight from the source.
