  • Punctures or holes caused by the workplace

Items such as eyelets popping out, pull tabs breaking and zippers malfunctioning can be repaired.

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 boots 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 boots that are the wrong size that have been worn on the worksite. 

Q: While on the worksite today I chipped the leather toe on my boot.  Can I return these boots as defective?

A: Scratches and toe chips are not defects - they are wear and tear and do not affect the safety protection of the product.    If your position causes the footwear to scratch and chip easily you may need to purchase a style that comes with a toe bumper.  This will give you added protection.


Q: The Insole in my boot/shoe is starting to fail.  Is this covered under warranty?

A: The insole of the boot is considered a wear and tear item and will need to be replaced from time to time.  This is not covered under our defective warranty.
