Special note for European customers following Brexit;
We are very sorry but following the Brexit vote in the UK and all the new costs and legislation that has followed this, we are now unable to ship into EU countries. We are very disappointed about this and will be lobbying governments to allow tiny businesses such as ours to find legal options that would enable us to go back to selling our wonderful garden shoes into EU countries again. But in the mean time we cannot ship to the EU - sorry.

You may ofcourse return new, unworn or unused shoes, boots and clogs within 30 days of the date purchased IF THEY HAVE A MANUFACTURING FAULT OR DAMAGE for a full refund of the cost of the goods.

To be eligible for a refund or exchange your item must returned within 30 days of the date purchased and be unused and in the same condition that you received it.
