Return & Exchange policy

See below our policies for purchasing instore and online:

If you purchased items in one of our stores...

Unwanted items

  • If you’re not happy with your shoes, and providing they were fitted by us, you can return them within 30 days for an exchange or a Running Free voucher at the discretion of the store manager who will first confirm that any issues are genuine and you have followed instructions on wearing them in. This guarantee does not include issues with size which is the customers own final choice. Shoes must be worn inside to confirm fit before taking outside and shoes cannot be exchanged for minor issues after being worn outside. Our first instinct is to keep you happy and change your shoes where necessary so please discuss any problems with us in person.

  • Shoes purchased without a fitting may be returned for a refund within 30 days provided they are unworn, in original packaging and you have the receipt.
  • All other products may be returned or exchanged if unworn and in original packaging.

  • If you have purchased a sale item but no longer want it, we are not obliged to offer refunds or exchanges as the items may have become out of date and of diminished value however we want you to be happy so please discuss the issue with a member of staff and we will find a solution.
