VAT Treatment of Non EU Deliveries.
For simplicity, and to avoid any unnecessary customer confusion, all our products are advertised at common prices – worldwide- i.e. each product is the same price regardless of the delivery destination. We are aware that delivery to certain non EU countries can sometimes be exempt from UK VAT, but in practice it is both costly and time consuming to administer a two tier pricing system to cater for this, so all our customers pay the same price (which may or may not include VAT depending on their location)

10. Returns Policy.

To return your purchase it must be returned in new condition (i.e. unworn) with the original box and swing tags, labels etc. The box MUST be repackaged securely by yourself (repackaging the box is not the couriers responsibility) inside a plastic bag or cardboard box and must not have any tape or labels stuck directly to the shoe box - Your return must also contain your original packing slip or a short note with your name and order number, within 30 days of it being delivered.

If you require an alternative product you will need to place a new order as your original will be refunded upon return. i.e. we do not operate an exchange service.

In instances where your return contravenes these conditions (i.e. damaged or defaced box or the shoes have been worn) your return will be refused or incur a charge (at our discretion) to reflect the impact this will have on re-selling the product.

How to Return for overseas customers

For International returns, you will need to arrange and pay for the returns method of your choice for correctly supplied, unwanted items. We do offer a DHL collection service for £29.99 which can be purchased here:

If you do not wish to use our DHL collection service, you can return your purchase via your own methods to the above returns address. Please note, if you choose to do this, you MUST ensure you state on the customs declaration that this is a Return to Sender/Origin. If an item is returned and not declared as a Return to Sender and incurs customs charges, we will refuse to pay these charges and the item will be returned to you by the courier, once the retention period has passed.

Items with a possible manufacturing defect:

Should you have concerns about a possible defect with your purchase, you will need to e-mail our customer service team at [email protected] , Please provide a detailed account and, if possible, photographs of the problem. After receiving your e-mail, we may ask you to either:

- Return the product for inspection.
- Return the product for a like-for-like replacement.
- Return the product for a full refund.

In some cases, we may ask you to destroy the shoes and provide photographic evidence, rather than returning them to us.

If we have requested the item to be returned, we will provide you with a free return label. This label should be printed and securely attached to your return parcel.

When handing your return over to the post office, it is crucial to obtain a Proof of Postage receipt. Please retain this receipt until we have received your returned item.

We maintain the right to levy charges for the return postage if the defects are not related to manufacturing errors, or if items are sent back without prior communication with us.

It is important to note that returns should be made within a reasonable timeframe, specifically within 30 days following our approval of the return. Should you opt to return the item using your own method, please be aware that we cannot compensate for any postage expenses incurred.

If your order is being returned with a possible manufacturing fault and you are outside of the UK, please contact us with all details and photo's of the possible defect and we will contact you on how to return your item/s.

Non received items:

We ship all our items using a tracked service which is very secure and reliable.

In the rare event your parcel is not received but the tracking details confirm that the parcel has been delivered at the address on the order and you state you have not received the item. We have no option but to open a claim with the courier, this will take up to 60 working days for the courier to settle the claim one way or the other. They will not allow us to chase the claim until this period has passed.

We regret we cannot refund / replace orders in the event that the tracking shows that the goods have been delivered at the correct address until the courier accepts our claim to the contrary.

If your parcel is not received and the tracking details do not confirm that the item has been delivered correctly or at all, we will refund your order if the tracking does not confirm delivery after 14 business days from the estimated original delivery date (Royal Mail strike days are not classed as business days).

If your item does not arrive, you will need to notify us within 28 days of the order date, our couriers will not investigate non delivery claims once this time period has passed and therefore we would be unable to offer any further assistance in this instance. We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause.

Please inspect your order upon arrival. If you find any items damaged or missing, you must inform us within 28 days from the date of the order and prior to using the item. For us to process a claim with the delivery service, we need you to provide photographs of the damaged items and the original packaging. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Please note that if the items are verified as delivered correctly through weight checks, photographs, or/and delivery confirmation, and no contrary evidence is presented, we regret that we will not be able to pursue your claim further.
