*COVID-19 RETURN POLICY UPDATE: If you purchased an item in February or March we are extending the return policy so you can return your item for a full refund by June 1st.  Since we are closed and Michigan is ordered to shelter-in-place, the only way to return an item currently is to ship it back to us. If you would like to make a return please email and we will email you a return shipping label. Or wait until the shelter-in-place order is lifted and you can return your item in store for a full refund.

New, unworn and unused items that do not meet your expectations in fit, quality, or style can be returned within 30 days for a full refund (includes purchase price and shipping charges). Defective items in any condition can be returned for a full refund of the purchase price and shipping costs within 30 days. If you feel that you received a damaged or defective item please contact us and we will provide you with a return shipping label.  PLEASE DO NOT PLACE SHIPPING LABELS ON OUR SHOE BOXES.  THIS DAMAGES THE BOX AND REQUIRES US TO MARKDOWN THE SHOE.  IF A SHOE BOX IS RETURNED DAMAGED WE MUST CHARGE A 20% RESTOCKING FEE.

To return an item, simply ship it back to us in its original packaging with the tags intact. Include a copy of your receipt, return form, or (if all else fails) your name, phone number and credit card number. 
If you need a return label, please email with the subject "Return Label Requested." Alternatively, you can print a blank return form here.
Due to safety and hygiene concerns we cannot accept returns on the following items: Climbing equipment, Swimwear, and Underwear (baselayers may be returned)

Your patronage is important to us and appreciated. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at with the subject "Return Policy". Thanks for stopping by.
