RETURNS CHECKLIST

To us the branded shoebox is as important as the shoes themselves, therefore we can’t accept shoes back for an exchange or refund without the original packaging in saleable condition.

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

  1. Unworn and unused with the original tags still attached.
  2. In the original packaging which must be in the original condition – please do not attach the returns label directly to the shoe box.
  3. 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 returns@solemechanics.com.au with your tracking number so we can alert the warehouse of its arrival.

REFUNDS

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.

Please Note: The Hampton Street Store is unable to accept or process refunds for web orders starting with prefix #SM.

EXCHANGES

We can exchange the item for a new item of the same or lesser value. If the new item is of a lesser value the difference will be refunded to the same method that you paid.

Unfortunately, we are unable to exchange for items that are at a higher value than the original price paid; in these instances, a refund will be issued.

Please Note: The Hampton Street Store is unable to accept or process exchanges for web orders starting with prefix #SM.

CHANGE OF MIND

You are most welcome to send back your item to us for a full refund. Please note we are unable to accept shoes returned with scratched or dirty soles.

We advise that when you try on your new shoes for the first time you do wear socks and test them out on the carpet, just in case!
