Please note that footwear that has been used for Skating/Scootering is not covered under warranty. The shoes sold for skating do feature elements to help make them more durable for the sport but they are not impervious to damage caused by grip tape, braking or attempting tricks.
My item is faulty. What do I do?
In the unfortunate event that you have received an item you believe to be faulty please check the following steps before returning your goods. We ideally need to be informed of any potential fault within 48 hours of receipt of the goods so please make sure you check over your product as soon as it is received. However you have 30 days from receipt of your item to inform us that your item is faulty.
If a manual is present please read these thoroughly to ensure correct operation of the product.
If the fault persists please email email@example.com with a description of the fault and your order number. If you could also attach a photo of the area this could help speed up the process a great deal. Alternatively please call to discuss this with our Customer Service Team on 0121 501 1111.

How do I return my items?
Along with your item(s) you will find a simple returns form that needs to be completed and returned along with your goods. Please note that failure to complete this form may result in delays when processing your return. We would also ask that you do not put any tape or labels directly on to the product packaging as this will deem the product unsaleable. Please cover the original packaging as best you can before applying any tape or labels.
With most items you will receive a free returns label with your order, or a leaflet on how to print your returns label. If for any reason you need to return the unused/unworn item you can simply complete the returns form, pack the returns form in the parcel, attach the label and drop the package at your nearest point. If you have no returns label or a leaflet with your parcel, please contact us for assistance.

The DPD service normally takes 2-3 working days for items to get back to us; Royal Mail takes 2-4 working days to get back to us.

My exchange is urgent! What do I do?
We understand that sometimes an exchange may be urgent. In this case we would recommend placing another order through the website and return the other item back for a full refund.
Can I return my product under warranty?
All products will come with a limited manufacturer warranty, most of the time this information will be with the product. Please check this information as some manufacturers will ask that you contact them directly. In most cases however you would be asked to contact the retailer.
In the event that you feel you can claim under the warranty we would ask that you email us with a description of the issue, your order number and preferably a photograph illustrating the issue.
In some cases we may be required to contact the manufacturer for their expert opinion before a decision is made.
We may also ask that a product is returned to us for inspection and if a fault can be repaired, or damaged part replaced we are obliged to do this and return the product to you.
Please note that footwear that has been used for Skating/Scootering is not covered under warranty. The shoes sold for skating do feature elements to help make them more durable for the sport but they are not impervious to damage caused by grip tape, braking and attempting tricks.
I need to return an item from outside the UK.
Unfortunately we cannot offer free returns on orders outside of the UK. You would need to return your item to the returns address above at your own cost.
