365 Day Returns Policy
We hope you’re happy with your new Schuh purchase! However, if you’re unhappy for any reason, here’s what to do.
Changed your mind?
If the shoes are not a suitable fit or if you simply do not like them, you have up to 365 days to return them to us. All we ask is that you send them back in the unused condition that you received them and in their original box where possible.
There are 2 ways for you to return shoes to us:
At a store
Just go to your nearest Schuh store with your shoes and some form of proof of purchase. Proof of purchase can be either the printout of your order confirmation or your e-mail confirmation which was sent to you after you placed your order.
Pack up the shoes carefully in their original box and a secure outer wrapper where possible and send them back clearly addressed to:
1 Neilson Square
Deans Industrial Estate
Please use the Returns Form which will have been enclosed when you received your order, or enclose a note detailing your name, address, contact number and reason for return.
We recommend you use some form of registered post in case you need to track your parcel.
If the item is faulty, or if we’ve made a mistake with your order, we will be able to offer a refund or an exchange and reimburse your postage costs if applicable. We’re really sorry, but we’re unable to take back used goods which are unsuitable or don’t fit, or reimburse the postage costs incurred returning unused/unsuitable items to us. This is in addition to, and does not affect, your consumer rights.
We accept the following methods of payment.
Solo - UK Only
Switch - UK Only
Visa Debit - UK Only
Electron - UK Only
Non card payment:-
Payment may be made by any of the methods above and will be debited when we despatch your order. The total amount you pay is the same, regardless of the payment method you use.
Payment will be processed using the services of SECpay, PayPal and Lloyds CardNet Merchant Services. For Debit, Credit and Gift Card payments, we may use a payment on despatch system. This means that your bank will ringfence a pre authorisation amount of £1 when the order is placed, and the full payment for each item will be debited as we despatch your order. As we may ship items from separate locations, this may mean that you see multiple debits for one order. Any pre authorisation amounts should be returned to your account 2-3 days.
Our prices in the European Union include VAT where applicable. Orders shipped to countries outside the EU may be subject to additional Sales Taxes and Import Duties.
