All postage costs to be paid for by the buyer.
If you purchased any item(s) as part of deal, e.g. 2 for £30 etc and decide to return part of your purchase to us for a refund, we will re-consider your purchase and refund you the amount based on the item(s) you have decided to keep. Alternatively, if you decide to return a multi-buy item for an exchange, we will only permit the item to be exchanged for an item within the same promotional group. For instance, if you are returning one pair of shoes from a 2 for £30 deal you may select another item/size/colour from within our 2 for £30 collection.
Other regular sale items (non-multibuy) may not be returned for an exchange. We will only accept sale items back for a refund. You will need to make a new purchase if you wish to change the size for example.
All goods which are suspected as faulty should be reported using our faulty item report page. Every item is checked thoroughly before dispatch. In the rare event an item has been delivered to you with a fault, you must notify us immediately. Please do not continue to wear the item or attempt to repair it as this may invalidate your right to return the product.
Footwear which has been customised is strictly non-refundable. Customers who choose to have "rubber grip soles" or "added heel height" to shoes or boots will not qualify for a refund in the event the item is not as expected. We advise you to have grip soles and/or heels added locally if you are not sure about sizing.
We are also not able to refund "waterproof protection" which is an added service that cannot be re-stocked in the event of a return. With regards to this, the item itself will be refunded but the cost of the "waterproof protection" cannot be refunded.
