As the courier will request a signature, it's important to choose an address where you or someone else will be available during office hours (for example at a concierge or office address).
If no-one is available to receive the order, the courier will leave a note and take the parcel to their nearest pick-up centre, where you can collect it at your convenience. After 10 days, the parcel will be returned to our warehouse and the order will be cancelled.
e. Will I have to pay any taxes or duties at delivery?
For purchases to the United Kingdom, VAT, as well as taxes and custom duties, are not included in the price displayed in the product page and at the checkout.

The payment of taxes is necessary to release your order from customs on arrival. We are unable to provide an estimate of these charges, since they are calculated by the local custom offices.

Before requesting the return, please make sure it meets these requirements:
- The item must be new and exactly as you received it, neither modified nor washed, with all labels and security tags attached (including any accessories or special packaging)
- Items must be tried on carefully to avoid any damage. Shoes must be tried on a soft carpeted surface to avoid any marks to the soles or upper
- The package must be shipped from the same Country where you received the order
- The courier must collect the package within 28 days from the original delivery date
- Final Sale items cannot be refunded.
