We're Often Asked

What is my size & how do I work this out?

Our Size Guide is here to help! Our shoes fit 'big' deliberately – we call this ‘the rule of thumb’. Your toes need wiggle room! This is especially important for running. If you can fit your thumb in-between the end of your toe and the front of the shoe, you’ve more than likely found your ideal size.

After some time with our shoes, your shoe size may need to increase, as your toes splay out more naturally.

How do I redeem a promotional / discount code?

Just enter your code in your Checkout Page prior to completing your order!

We’ll make it clear when a code applies to specific products, and you’ll be informed of your codes expiry date upon issue. On that note, unless stated, promotional codes are not redeemable on clearance items or any other special offer.

If a code is abused, it will be made invalid. We reserve the right to withdraw promotional codes before their expiration date without any prior notice.

How do I create an account?

Head to the My Account page and simply enter a valid email address and create a password.
