How does “Try Before You Buy” work? You can try our shoes risk-free. Here’s how it works: choose your size and style, enter your credit card, and your shoes will be on their way. You will not be charged for the shoe unless you decide to keep them. You have 7 days to try them on and see how beautiful they look on your foot! If you love the shoe and decide to keep it, you will be charged the cost of the shoe at the end of 7 days. If you decide this shoe is not your perfect fit, you can return it within the 7 day window, and you will not be charged.
Can I really try it on? Yes! However please note our shoes are precious, so try them on a carpet and soft surface in order to ensure you protect the soft sole of the shoes. We cannot accept the return if the shoes are at all damaged.
How do payment and returns work? You have 7 days from the date you placed your order to decide if you want to keep your shoes. If we don’t hear from you within 7 days, we’ll know it’s a perfect fit and your card will be charged the full amount of the shoe. California residents will be subject to additional sales tax. Returns must be initiated within 7 days from the date you placed your order and have to be unworn and not damaged. Returns under any circumstance will be not accepted after the 7 day period has concluded. At the time you place your order a pre-authorization will be placed on your card to validate your form of payment. This pending charge will fall off of your statement within a few days (it varies by bank).
When does my 7 day Try Before You Buy period start? Your Try Before You Buy starts the day you place your order. You’ll have 7 days from then to try on and love your shoes.
What if it doesn’t fit? If you know right away that you'll need a different size let us know! We want to work with you to get you your best fit ever, and exchange shipping is always free. Our fit stylists are available to chat with live on our website from 9am-6pm PST, Monday - Friday. You can also contact us through our customer service you have any questions!
How do I make a return or exchange? You can make a return or exchange by emailing client services email@example.com or calling us at (866) 419-5500. We will guide you through the returns and exchange processes. Returns must be initiated within 7 days from the date you placed your order and have to be unworn and not damaged. To avoid damaging, try them on a carpet and soft surface in order to ensure you protect the soft sole of the shoes.
Why did you charge my card at the start? We initiate a temporary pre-authorization at the time of checkout to validate your form of payment. This pending charge of $1 will never be processed and will fall off of your statement within a few days (varies by bank).
Is this a subscription? No, this is a one-time delivery, and you’ll only be charged for the shoe if you decide to keep it. You’re always welcome to place orders with us in the future but the Try Before You Buy program is a one-time only program.
