Shipping, Pre-order, Return & Exchange Policy

Shipping Process

Standard Policy 

Free shipping for all Australian orders via Australia Post standard parcel. Shipping takes 3-5 business days.   International shipping AUD$30 and may change depending on the country.

For pre-orders please allow 4-5 weeks from pre-order end date for shipment to arrive at your nominated address. 

Pre-order process

There is a two week window for you to make your purchase. Pay up-front by the pre-order end date and we'll send off your order to be lovingly handmade in Greece by Eadles Shoes.  The shoes take between 2-4 weeks to get handmade and sent back to Australia. Once we get them, we'll deliver it to you asap.  The whole process from the pre-order end date is approx. 4-5 weeks. I know this may seem long but we're hoping the styles and sizes are worth the wait! If there's any delay we'll let you know straight away and if for some reason the shoes don't get made or there's an unforeseeable issue, we'll refund you.
