Q: I have worn my shoes but they are hurting my feet.  Can I return them for a larger size?

A: Unfortunately we cannot take returns on any product that has been worn.  The product has to be in brand new, resaleable condition with its original packaging and receipt.  Final Sale products are excluded from all return policies.  

Q:  I have purchased a Final Sale product.  Which return or exchange options are available to me?

A: Final Sale products are excluded from all return policies and are unable to be returned or exchanged.  These highly discounted items are ideal for customers who have purchased them in the past and are comfortable with their sizing.  Exchanges and returns are not available to any product in this collection. 

Q: My new shoes have given me blisters.  Can I return them as defective?

A: It is not uncommon to get blisters when your shoes/boot are new as the materials are more rigid and will need to be broken in.  Unfortunately, this is not a defect.  Please try the footwear on inside before wearing them on the worksite.  If you feel the fit is too tight or not correct for your foot we can offer you an exchange or return. We cannot accept returns for footwear that are the wrong size that have been worn on the worksite. 

Q: Can I return shoes I bought online to one of your retail locations?

A: Yes our stores will accept the return if your product is unworn and with their original packaging. In order for our retail locations to process your return you will have to bring the paper receipt that was included with your package.  If you are looking to exchange your shoes please call the retail location to ensure they have the size and style you are looking for.  Final Sale Products are excluded from this policy.

Q: I don't have the receipt. Can I still return the product to the store?

A:  Our stores need the receipt to look up your original transaction and to apply the return to.  If we cannot find your original transaction we cannot process a return.  For orders placed online, please contact us as we can provide this information to the store directly. 

Q: I paid to return my order.  Will this be refunded?

A:  If the item you are looking to return/exchange is over $100 our team will email you a free shipping label from our carrier system.  We are unable to refund 3rd party shipping costs.
