The address I typed is correct, but it's not being accepted. What should I do?

Does the address you typed match the address on file with the credit card company? If it does, and you still encounter a problem, please call our Customer Center 1-888-802-9947.

Why does my card show two charges?

Sometimes credit/debit card statements contain two transactions, but this is only temporary. When a purchase is made, an authorization charge is placed on credit/debit cards which temporarily hold funds. This is not actually a charge on your card. Once the order has been shipped, this authorization becomes an approval and charges your account. The authorization falls off under 72 hours from when you ordered.

For your security, we may pre-authorize $1 to verify your billing address and credit/debit card information. If successful, we’ll charge the full amount of your purchase (plus sales tax and shipping) once your order ships. If this $1 pre-authorization fails, we will not authorize your purchase. The $1 pre-authorization will drop off from your account within 2-3 business days.

How is sales tax calculated?

Some states charge sales tax on the things you buy, and some charge tax on shipping. We follow the rules implemented by each individual state.

Where sales tax is applicable, it will appear on your online order form and on the invoice included with your order. State sales tax may be added to all orders shipped to: State sales tax may be added to all orders shipped to: Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, Michigan, Missouri, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Carolina, New Jersey, New Mexico, Nevada, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.

We do not charge sales tax when you buy an Online Gift Card or eGift Card, because tax gets charged when the gift card is used.

Please note: Tax is not calculated until the date your order ships. This may affect your qualification or participation in tax-exempt sales.

How are custom orders different?

Custom footwear orders are nonrefundable, except in cases of manufacturing or material defects (this does not cover normal wear and tear). For additional information, please contact our Customer Service team at 1-888-802-9947 within 10 days of receiving your purchase.

Can I cancel my online order?

You will receive an email confirming credit back to your original form of tender as soon we we are able to reissue credit. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
