Please sign up from the product page to be instantly alerted when an item restocks.
If you recieve an alert on restock day and the item is sold out- sign up again. Once you get an email or text, you are removed from the queue.

If you simply need replacements, we process these on an as-needed basis. Email us at email@example.com and include all relevant details including your home address, item number, color and size. We'll check if we have the part available and get back to you.
Can I change my order after it is placed?
No. We do not allow editing of orders at this time. Your order will be cancelled and refunded, and you can repurchase the correct item. This includes changing sizes.
Do you have any tips for first-time buyers?
Wearing platforms comes with its own challenges compared to typical thin sole shoes, so be aware of common mistakes:
* When bending down, try to squat and keep your heels on the ground. Do not stand on the ball of your foot as you naturally would. Platforms don't flex like sneaker soles, so the stress of this repeated action may result in the heel separating from the platform.
* Unzip or unlace your shoes fully when taking them off. You do not want to use overt force when you put on/take off your shoes, as you can split the zipper doing this.
* If the zipper of your new pair is hard to pull, try rubbing a wax candle (or bar soap) on the zipper teeth while undone, this can help to lubricate the zipper and help it break in smoothly.
* Please be careful. We recommend against driving and traversing wet/icy floors while wearing platforms.

How do I use Afterpay?
Afterpay is presented as a payment option at the final stage of checkout where you would normally enter your credit card number.
Why can't I select Afterpay at checkout?
If you use an auto-filled checkout like Apple Pay or Shop Pay, you will not be able to select Afterpay. Please restart the checkout process and enter all your details manually. (You may need to click "checkout as guest" near the bottom.)
What if I return something I bought with Afterpay?
If you make a purchase with Afterpay and decide to return it, we recommend you choose "original payment" when making your return. Once we receive and process your return, we will refund the payments you have made and you will not be charged again.
If you choose store credit for your return, you will still have to make the remainder of the payments, because your credit will be the full value of the order, even if it is not paid off yet.

Afterpay uses their own screening process that we have no control over. If they deny your application, unfortunately we cannot help you.
