Refund Policy

We hope you are happy with your purchase but understand you may change your mind.

We offer a 100 day change of mind returns policy, so the returns process will need to be initiated within 100 days from the date the products were shipped to you.

Your order will include a returns form and address label but if you do not have these documents enclosed click here to download a copy - or contact our Returns Team -


We offer one (1) FREE prepaid Australia Post return label per order* within Australia. Please contact the  ReturnsTeam and they will email you a pre-paid return shipping label so you can return your parcel free of charge. Please see your returns form for further details.


Customers outside of Australia are required to pay return postage but we will reimburse return postage up to the value of $22 NZD for each returned order on receipt of goods with a valid postage proof of purchase. Please see your returns form for further details. 

PLEASE NOTE: Returned items within the same order should be packed together. If you later decide to return additional items from the same order, you’ll need to cover the cost of return postage.

Sole Mechanics will accept shoes back for an exchange or refund provided that the following conditions are met:

➀ Unworn and unused with the original tags still attached.
➁ In the original packaging in the original condition – do not attach the returns label directly to the shoe box.
➂ Please wrap or pack the return to protect the shoe box whilst in transit and if you are recycling the original postbag the shoes were sent in, turn the bag inside out or cover/remove any existing delivery or courier labels.

Once that’s done simply enclose your completed returns form and take your return to your nearest post office - but don’t forget to request and retain proof of postage and tracking information as Sole Mechanics cannot issue refunds for items we do not receive.

To expedite the return, please email with your tracking number so we can alert the warehouse of its arrival.


Refunds will be issued using the same method that you paid and credited to the same account your payment came from.

We will process your refund within 7 business days of receiving the return at our warehouse, however during peak periods, this may increase to 10 business days.

Once your refund is processed, the time it takes for the funds to settle in your account will depend on your card issuer.

Please be aware that international customs duties and sales taxes are not refunded for shipments outside Australia.
