How much are pre-order deposits?
A $200 non refundable deposit is due at the time of placing a pre-order. The remaining balance including shipping is due when the order lands prior to shipping.
If you need a special width/size, we require a 50% non-refundable deposit at the time of placing your pre-order. We will contact you upon arrival.
When the order arrives, you have up to 14 days to pay the remaining balance after you've been notified, otherwise your order will be cancelled and you will forfeit your deposit.
Contact the sales team for further information.
How long do pre-orders take?
Production times may vary with style. ETAs are listed with each pre-order.
What is your return/exchange policy?
We will gladly exchange or issue store credit for any unworn regular price shoes or leather accessories within 14 days of purchase date. Store credit does not expire. Shoes and leather accessories must be in the same condition with no signs of try-on or wear to allow for re-stocking. We do not accept returns or exchanges on socks or shoe care products.
We do not offer refunds.
All sales are considered final sale. No returns or exchanges are accepted on sale items.
If there is an issue with an item you received, your order is still subject to the regular timeline for returns within 14 days of purchase date. Please send pictures of any issues upon receipt of your order to firstname.lastname@example.org before you mail your return items back to us.
