  4. You include a copy of the original sales receipt.

Shipping Insurance

Product insurance can be a crucial step. We insure all products we ship out. If something disappears on it’s way to you it is the shippers' responsibility. We strongly suggest you do the same if returning an item. If an item is not insured and it does not arrive at our facilities we are not able to accept any liabilities. In short, you will be out the item and the money used to pay for it!

Returning Multiple Sizes

As a smaller speciality retailer, we cannot pay for multiple pairs of the same items in different sizes to be sent for customers to "try on". When you really can’t decide, give us a call, and our can staff help you with your decision. We don’t need to deplete our/your wallets and needlessly increase our carbon footprint shipping products around the country.

If you have chosen the wrong size, and need to return it for a different size we will pay to have the second item shipped out. After that, if things still don’t work out we suggest you visit us at one of our stores, or visit your local speciality retailer so that you can be helped in person.
