A: We're glad you asked! Make sure all items are in first quality condition and have the original tags attached. If you purchased footwear, make sure you have the original shoebox they were purchased in. If you have any questions about whether or not your items qualify for a return, give us a call!
Q: How long do I have to return my items?
A: Your return must be received at our warehouse by the 60th day from the ship date of your order.
Q: Can I exchange my items?
A: Our two step return and reorder process takes the place of an exchange policy, but don't worry! It's quick and easy! We offer free standard shipping on reorders that are not placed with additional discounts such as Friends and Family, Pro purchase, or Partner.
Q: Why do you not offer an exchange process?
A: Since our available stock changes every day, we cannot guarantee that your item will still be in stock by the time a reorder is placed. Need recommendations for a replacement product? We're here to help! Check out our new arrivals here.
