How to Return

We know that shoes don't always fit so we've made it as easy as possible for you to send something back!

Please note that you will need to have access to a printer to complete the return.

Check that you qualify for a return

  • Were the items purchased in the last 30 days?
  • Are your items in their original condition?
  • Are they still in their original packaging or shoe box (we consider this a part of the product)?

Once you have checked you qualify for a return, pack the items you want to return into the original packaging or branded shoe box and place it into your Styletread carton or similar cardboard box.

Please make sure all returns are sent back to Styletread within 30 days from the date of purchase. We do not accept returns after the 30 day return period has ended.

How long does the return process take?

It will usually take up to 2-10 working days for the return to come back to the Styletread warehouse depending on the method of return.

Estimated return times:

Australia Post - 7 business days
Parcel Point - up to 10 business days

You will get an email from us to let you know it arrived at our warehouse safe and sound.

Please Note: During peak trading times including but not limited to Christmas and sale, refunds may take slightly longer to process.

When the return is approved for a refund, it will be processed by our Finance team within 3 working days. We'll send you an email to let you know that the refund was carried out. The refund will be credited back to the same credit card or PayPal account that you paid from.

Once your refund has been processed by our Finance Team, please allow approximately 1 to 7 business days for the funds to appear back into your account, depending on your financial institution.


I love my order but I bought the wrong size!

We recommend that you order the shoe in the correct size as soon as you can because we do not offer order exchanges and we really don’t want you to miss out! Then follow the above steps to send back the size you don't want.


Where do I find my External Document Number?

Your External Document number can be found in two places:

1) At the bottom of your order confirmation email or

2) On the piece of paper found in the box with your order under the heading 'Tax Invoice'.

This External Document number can also be used as a reference number when you are contacting customer service.

Faulty or Damaged Shoes?

Styletread's Returns Policy includes the rights you are entitled to under the Australian Consumer Law.

If you have received faulty/damaged shoes, please send us photos of where the damage/fault is, as well as a photo of the whole shoe to – for further assessment. We may also consult with the supplier or manufacturer to determine if the item is faulty.

If you wish to return a faulty good after the 30-day return period, please contact our Customer Happiness Team.

If the item is found to be faulty, you will receive a full refund for that item including the delivery charge unless the delivery charge has been previously refunded for that order.
