Shipping & Returns
Free Shipping On Orders Over $50
We offer FREE standard ground shipping to domestic* customers on orders totaling over $50 (excluding tax). For orders under $50, a $7 flat shipping rate applies.
Following credit card authorization and verification, your merchandise will arrive to you in 5 – 7 business days, depending on the location. This is an estimate. This does not include weekends or holidays. Since our warehouse is located in Illinois, if your shipping address is an Illinois address, you can expect your package a bit earlier — usually within 2-3 days.
Please note that all shipping delivery times are in addition to our standard order processing time of 1-2 business days.
Order confirmation will be emailed to you after your order is placed. You will also receive a shipping confirmation via email once we ship your order, and it will include your tracking number that you can click to view the status.

If any package is refused or undeliverable, customer will be responsible for any return shipping costs or taxes. It can take 8 weeks or more for a refused or undeliverable package to arrive back to us. The original shipping cost is non-refundable.
Customs and Duty
Your country's Customs office may add Customs taxes (VAT) and Duty to your package once it arrives at your Customs office. Customer must pay any customs, duties and/or taxes to the parcel carrier at delivery of the package. Your parcel carrier may contact you to arrange payment of these fees before the package can be delivered. If any package is refused or undeliverable, customer will be responsible for any return shipping or taxes.
You will receive a confirmation email once your shoes are boxed up and ready to ship. It will include your tracking number and you can track your package from that email. Some tracking updates will not appear for a few days after the package ships, depending on where it is traveling to. USPS has very limited tracking. Your order will be delivered to your country's Customs office by USPS. You will see one tracking update once we ship the package, then possibly none while it travels to your country. Your Customs office will then process the package and this could take a couple days or a couple weeks or more, depending on how fast your Customs office is. Once cleared, it will be delivered by your local postal service, usually the same one that delivers your mail to you. Delays can occur for various reasons during shipping or while in Customs and we will not know why. Check your local postal carrier's website to see if there are any further details about your package once it clears Customs.
