A Return Postage Label (providing free return shipping) will only be provided for customers that originally received free shipping for initial orders OVER $100, only one label can be provided per order.

HOW DO I PACK MY RETURN?

The shoe box is considered part of the product and must be returned in good condition by wrapping/boxing prior to shipping. We recommend using the box that the products were originally shipped in. Alternatively, satchels and boxes are available at all Australia Post outlets.

Any goods that have been shipped back without the original packaging, and not in original condition, or where the original packaging has been used as the shipping box, will not be accepted as a return, and subsequently a refund or exchange will not be issued.
