Certain items cannot be returned; however, if you have received a defective or broken item, you can get them exchanged without any hassles within seven days, provided all the original tags are intact. For more information, you can reach out to our customer service executives.
How do I clean and care for my pair of shoes?
The best way to clean your shoes is to wipe them with a damp cloth and let them sit in the sunlight for a while. This will get rid of any dirt and debris on them quickly and without the need for professional cleaning. Do not soak them in the water for very long or overnight as that can cause damage to the product. Also, store them carefully in the shoe rack or in boxes in the shoe case as that will prevent unnecessary wear and tear that can be caused by other pairs of shoes, especially with heels and stones jutting out of them.
