Returns Terms and Conditions

Unworn Returns

We understand that, especially when buying shoes, there is a possibility that you may need to return them. To help you with this, we have a 30 day returns policy for all orders; and for our UK customers, this is offered with free returns postage. All we ask is that the product is unworn, has only been tried on on carpeted surfaces and is in re-sellable condition.

Worn Returns

Unfortunately we are unable to offer refunds or exchanges on non-faulty products that have been worn or used. For hygiene reasons, we are unable to accept underwear or hosiery that has been removed from its original, sealed packaging. Before wearing your shoes outside please make sure that they fit properly, if you find they don't fit at a later stage we will be unable to offer a refund. Any non-faulty products that are returned to us in a worn condition will be returned to the address on the original order (at the cost of Bells Shoes). If you believe your item to be faulty please see the section below "Faulty Returns".

Faulty Returns

We check all orders that we dispatch for quality but we do understand that occasionally the odd order may slip through our stringent checks.

Within 30 Days or Unworn
If you receive a faulty product or find the product to be faulty within the first 30 days of receipt, you should return the item to us using the below returns procedure. Please make sure to note that the product is faulty on the returns paperwork (it's helpful if you tell us what the fault is too!)

After 30 days
Please contact us about the nature of the fault before returning the item to us.
