Returns and Refunds Policy


Q. Are your shoe sizes 'true to size'? 

A. Against AU sizes they are not exactly 'true to size' but against USA sizes they are. We don't do half-sizing. You usually pick the next size up for USA to what your AU size is e.g. AU-8/8.5 = US-9. 

Women's AU to Women's US - Next size up e.g. W AU-8/8.5 = W US-9 

Women's AU to Men's US - 2 Sizes down e.g. W AU-8/8.5 = M US-6 

Men's AU to Men's US - Next size up e.g. M AU-11/11.5 = M US-12 

Men's AU to Women's US - 3 Sizes up e.g. M AU-11/11.5 = W US-14

Q. Can I return my order for a refund if I don't like the style once I have received it, or if I changed my mind, or don't need the shoes anymore? 

A. No, unfortunately we can't offer refunds just because you have changed your mind. We are a small family business and every dollar we spend importing our stock to Australia and shipping orders to our customers makes a noticeable dent in our bottom line. Please choose your products carefully. 


Q. Is the item physically in-stock if it shows in-stock online? 

A. Not always, some items that may show in-stock on our website go on backorder if they have sold out and the ETA is within 2 months. If we can't ship out the item you have ordered within the estimated shipping timeframe you have selected, we will notify you of your options. 


Q. How long does it take for an order to be delivered? 

A. Under normal circumstances, your order is despatched to courier in 3-5 business days after our processing time of up to 48h. So generally on the 7th business day you would expect to receive a shipping notification. This is sent via Email. Please check your Junk/Spam folders. 

Courier delivery speeds vary but on average take 2-5 business days for the courier to get your order from our door to your door within Australia. 

Express shipping takes the courier on average 1-3 business days after your order has been picked up. 

For international orders, it can take up to 28 business days.
