Our returns Policy:

  • Returns need to be packaged securely to avoid any damage, as you are responsible for the item/s until they arrive with us.
  • All clothing and accessories must be returned unworn with all packaging and tags attached.
  • We do not exchange items unfortunately, so all orders will be inspected and processed for a refund. If you would like a new size/style, please place a new order on line or over the phone.
  • We advise that you keep hold of your Proof of Postage until you have confirmation that the return has been received.

How will I know I have been refunded?

Once the goods have been received and processed by our returns team we will action your refund. When this has been done we will then send an email notification, confirming the amount and order number.

I have received part of my order but am still waiting for some items. What do I do if I want to return something?

If you need to return the entire order or just a part of it, simply follow our normal return process using the FREE return label included in your parcel (UK only). You don't need to wait to receive your entire order.

Can I return my order to a Dr. Martens store?

Unfortunately no, we cannot process on-line returns in store. Please use our easy on-line return process in order to receive your refund.

What happens if I receive a faulty item/s?

We are so sorry to hear that you have received an incorrect/faulty product. Please contact us as soon as possible and we can help you sort this out.

You can also return the item/s for a full refund using our normal returns process if you would prefer to do this.

I have returned part of my order but have not received a refund for my shipping?

We will only refund your original shipping cost if the whole order is returned to us. If you return part of the order, we will only refund you for those items.

Am I able to return my item for an exchange rather than a refund?

At the moment, we are not able to offer exchanges if the item does not fit you, or you would like a new style. Your order will be processed for a refund and you will need to place a new order.

If you have an account with us, it is easy to place a new order using the same address details as before, or by adding new details. You can also call us to place an order if the delivery is in the UK.
