Shipping and Returns
Christmas extension of Returns policy;
Please scroll down to read full Returns policy.
If you buy Poddy and Blacks shoes or boots as a festive gift you may return them to us up to January 14th. All other conditions about keeping them clean, unused, and returned in their original shoe box apply unchanged....do keep hold of the shipping document when you receive them as this includes all the information you will need to be able to return them. This is a very busy time of year for us so please do send them back as soon as you can after Christmas if they dont fit etc. And thanks for your patience if it takes a little longer than usual to process them. We have a limited supply of elves so our workshop can get busy!

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.

Special note about shipping woollen insoles and alpaca socks . These products can be ordered on their own and shipped to you by British Royal Mail.
