Returns Inspection Policy & Procedure

We place a high premium on your rights as a consumer and our guarantee to you that our products will be:

  1. fit for the purpose for which it is commonly used
  2. safe, durable and free from defects
  3. acceptable in appearance and finish.

If you return a product to us within 30-days of purchase, it will be inspected by our returns officer. If the product does not meet any of your rights and our guarantees highlighted above, you are entitled to a remedy based on whether the returned product is classified as having a major or minor problem. 

Major Problem Identified

Major problems are identified as products having the following issues:

Structural Issues 

Tom bought a pair of boots that had a hole in the welt deep enough to reduce their water resistance. (Examples only - outcomes may differ in individual cases)

Not As Described

Jean ordered a light brown shoe cream but the colour was more like dark brown. 

A Fault Or Problem 

Lisa received a high-heel stretcher but when she went to use it the stretcher would not expand into her heels, as described. 

The product is unsafe.

Penny bought a pair of boot trees but when they arrived a jagged shard of wood had come away from the product. 

Remedies Offered For Major Problems

Upon identifying a major problem with your purchase you will be given the option for a refund or a replacement; or if you with to keep it, we will compensate you for an agreed drop in value. 

Minor Problem Identified

If the returned item is assessed to not have a major problem, but a problem nonetheless, we consider it a minor problem.

Remedies Offered For Minor Problems

Upon identifying a minor problem with your purchase we reserve the right to advise you of its repairability and the timeline in which it will be repaired. We also reserve the right to decide to replace the identical item, provide you compensation by way of a reduced-cost refund or to refund you.

No Problem Identified

If the returned item is assessed to not have a problem, or the problem is so minor that any reasonable consumer would accept it or otherwise home-remedy it e.g. a light scuff on leather that can be buffed out with a brush, no remedy will be offered and the item will be returned to the consumer. We reserve the right to request the consumer cover the return cost.
