Want to return your online order? Easy! Contact us here with your order number and the item/s you wish to return and we will send you a return authorisation and instructions for completing your return within 2 business days. You are also welcome to return or exchange your order at any Shoes & Sox standalone store. To do this, simply bring in the shoes you wish to return and your order confirmation email as proof of purchase. All of the following return conditions apply.
Shoes & Sox is committed to ensuring the perfect fit, regardless of whether your purchase was made in-store or online. We understand it can be difficult to buy the right size for your child without being fitted in person which is why we offer friendly and easy returns.
When you receive your order, we recommend having your child try their new shoes on soft or carpeted floors. Ask them to walk around the room and check that their feet are not slipping and that the shoe is fitting securely through the ankle. Ensure that there is a thumb space of room at the front of the shoe to allow room for growing. If it’s not 100% right, you are more than welcome to return these back to us for a refund (full priced items) or credit note (sale items). Please see our full policy below -
We offer refunds on all full priced products. Items purchased on a temporary promotion are still eligible for a refund. Your return must be initiated within 1 month of receiving your order.
We offer a credit note only (no refunds) on sale products, meaning items which have been permanently marked down. Your return must be initiated within 7 days of receiving your order.
Any shipping costs paid at the time of your order are non-refundable.
Returns will only be accepted if the product shows absolutely no sign of wear upon inspection. You are required to send your item back in its box or original packaging (if you weren’t sent a box), with no dirty marks or wear on the sole. If you fail to notify Shoes & Sox about any wear on the shoes prior to sending them back, your return will not be accepted and your order will be sent back to you.
If you received an FBB card with your order, you must ship this back with your return (excluding NZ orders).
You may return your order to any Shoes & Sox store, excluding Myer concessions. The same terms and conditions apply. If your purchase was made on Afterpay, it may take 1 business day for the refund to clear.
The customer is responsible for all return shipping costs (except if faulty). We strongly recommend opting for registered, tracked post. The customer takes full responsibility for the order until the time that it is accepted by our returns team. If we have not physically received your return, we cannot process your refund or credit note.
Any orders sent back without a return authorisation will not be accepted. All returns must be accepted by Shoes & Sox and sent back with authorisation.
Shoes & Sox reserves the right to refuse your return if the above conditions are not fully adhered to.
Once we have processed your refund for your full price item, it can take up to 5 business days for the funds to become available in your account. If your purchase was made via Afterpay, any payments made for that item will be refunded and upcoming payments will be cancelled. If you are returning only part of your Afterpay order, your total will be amended to reflect this and your repayments (if any) will be adjusted accordingly. We are only able to refund back to the original payment platform used for your order.
If you have returned a sale item, you will receive an email with instructions on how to redeem your store credit. Store credits do not expire and can be used on any product online. They are not valid in-store.
If your order was paid for using a store credit or gift voucher, the value of your return will be reinstated back to this method.
Shoes & Sox does not offer exchanges through our online store. If you require a different size or colour from the product you have purchased, you have two options -
1. Take the shoes back to your local Shoes & Sox standalone store and perform an exchange (valid on full price or sale items). To view stock availability, please check the product listing or call us on (03) 8671 1746.
2. Follow the returns process as outlined below and send back to our returns team for a refund or a credit note. Once this has been processed, you can then create a new order with the alternate size/colour you need. Any discounts applied at the time of your original order will be honoured.
Please contact our online support team here with the following information -
Details of the item/s you wish to return
We will then create a return authorisation for you which outlines how to complete your return. You will be required to send the item/s back to us at the provided address and pay for applicable shipping costs. It typically takes 3 - 5 business days for returns to be processed once received by our team. You will be notified by email once your return has been finalised.
Alternatively, you can take your order back to your local store with a copy of your order confirmation email (printed or on your phone).
Before requesting a return for your order, please take care in ensuring that the product is in a new, unworn condition and the box or packaging is not damaged. Please do not attach labels or tape directly onto the shoe box. We suggest placing boxes in a plain shipping satchel and affixing the label to this.
