Trying on your new shoes for fit and comfort

Finding the correct size and fitting for your feet can be difficult due to different last shapes and upper designs used in footwear. We fully expect and indeed encourage you to try your new shoes on to check for fit and comfort BUT PLEASE

  • Try your shoes on a carpet or other surface that is not going to mark the soles of the shoes. Please do not try them on outside or on any other surface that may mark the shoe.

  • Wear your usual hosiery for that type of shoe to check for fit, but if trying on a shoe which you would normally wear without hosiery, please try with a pop-sock so that the linings remain unmarked.

  • It is best to try your footwear on in the afternoon when your feet have expanded, as feet do during the day, to check if the shoe is comfortable. Trying shoes on in the morning when your feet are at their slimmest may mean the shoes become uncomfortable later on in the day. You will not be able to return the shoes if you discover this, having then worn them outside.

  • Do not cut any "extended straps with cut offs" until you are certain about the fit and comfort of the shoes. Once straps have been cut, shoes cannot be returned for a refund or exchange.

Please try on your new purchase carefully to avoid any potential disappointment regarding an exchange / refund. Under distance selling regulations, once shoes have been "marked" in any way, whether it be on the sole or the lining, or changed by cutting extended straps and can no longer be described "as new / original", we are not able to accept them back for an exchange or refund. It is therefore important that you satisfy yourself with the fit and comfort of the shoe before cutting straps or wearing them normally.

If you find the size and fit is not as you expected, please discuss this with our customer services team on 01933 311077 who can give friendly advice from their years of experience talking to similar customers.

You have 30 days to return your shoes for a refund or exchange if you decide they are not suitable. Please use our FREE postage on returns and exchanges service* to ensure you receive no further postal charges connected to this order. Please ensure that any extra insoles / extension straps originally supplied with the shoes are included with the returned shoes as missing items will be charged.

*FREE postage on returns and exchanges service applies to shoes returned from the UK only. Does not apply to shoes bought through Independent retailers or e bay. Returns must be sent via Royal Mail using the correct paperwork and posted within the UK.
