Shipping & Returns:
BREXIT UPDATE FOR EU CUSTOMERS:
For orders over £250 to EU member states the price you see on the product page is the price you will pay (+ shipping costs only). East West Apparel will pay any taxes and duties due on your order when it enters your country ahead of time so that your order comes to you as quick as before without any further costs involved. The returns procedure has changed slightly and is detailed under returns and exchanges below.
To keep things nice and simple and just incase you need to return an item the shipping cost has not been calculated into the price of your item/s. We feel that this way it is transparent, the price of the item is just that and customers in one location are not getting a better deal than those in another.
The shipping rate is calculated on the heaviest item in your cart/ basket only so no need to worry that you’ll be charged twice.
- Flat rate of £6.50 for all orders.
Europe (Excluding: Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, Bulgaria, Romania, Croatia, or Greece – Please see details below):
All import costs for orders above £300 (for the items, not including shipping costs) are covered by East West Apparel and so the price you see on the product page is the price you will pay (which will get converted to your currency) + the below shipping costs. There will be no import taxes or duties for you to pay unless your order value for items only is under £300.
- Flat rate of: £20.00
- Small Packet/ Envelope/ Laces: £10.00
- Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, Bulgaria, Romania, Croatia, or Greece: £65.00
Sincere apologies to our customers from Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, Bulgaria, Romania, Croatia, or Greece. The costs involved with shipping to your country now are very high due to brokerage and handling fee’s so we have to charge more to cover only a portion of this. Sorry.
Rest Of The World:
- Flat rate of: £30
- Small Packet/ Envelope/ Laces: £10.00
Your order will be sent within 24 hours if received on a weekday. If your order is received on the weekend your order will ship on Monday by either Royal Mail guaranteed delivery or a courier of our choosing (Usually UPS or DPD) and you will receive tracking information by email.
Import taxes and duties outside of the EU:
Are your responsibility, they are not included within the shipping costs.
SALE ITEMS: Are non returnable/ refundable so please do check measurements thoroughly using the measurements provided. If you are unsure on sizing, please do get in touch so we can help with any information you might need.
We hope you are happy with your item/s but if for any reason you do need to return or exchange an item then we offer a full no hassle refund or exchange.
Please follow the appropriate procedure below.
Please Note: Any items such as custom/ special ordered boots or items that have been altered in any way at your request or whilst in your possession are non-returnable/ refundable unless faulty when received. So, please contact us to discuss any sizing details or queries and refer to any relevant sizing charts before placing an order.
- Please contact us letting us know you wish to return an item.
- Items must be unworn, all tags and associated packaging attached and in the condition you received them. PLEASE TRY SHOES & BOOTS ON ON A CARPETED SURFACE to keep the sole in new condition.
- Return shipping is your responsibility (unless the item is faulty) and we would suggest sending the returned item by an insured (for the full value) and recorded method, as they are your responsibility until we receive them back. We can also arrange to email you a UPS returns label and deduct £10 from your refund or invoice you the same amount if it is an exchange.
- Returns must be received within 7 (UK) and 14 (EU/ International) days of the date of delivery. Any returns received after this time will result in either an exchange or shop credit being offered only.
- Once the goods are received back and inspected satisfactorily we will issue a full refund minus initial shipping costs within 24 hours to the original source of payment. Please leave up to 7 days for the refund to show on your payment source.

Non UK returns:
- We are in the process of offering a returns service for EU/ International returns whereby we send you a UPS label via the UPS website and deduct the cost from your refund or invoice you for the cost if it is an exchange. This will keep your costs to a minimum and simplify the the returns process for you. We will publicise this option shortly.
- If returning items from outside of the UK it is important that you mark the items as RETURNED GOODS.
- Please also declare the value at no more than £15 (or the equivalent in your country’s currency). If you do not do this, we will end up paying taxes and duties on the item for a second time around which will have to be deducted from your refund. Please do insure the parcel for the full value as the item is your responsibility until we receive it back.
- Upon receipt of returned items, we will issue a full refund for the amount paid for the items only or give an exchange or credit as required.
Please follow the same steps as for refunds with the exception of:
- Please inform us by email that you wish to exchange for a different size/ item and if in stock we will reserve your exchange item for you or alternatively order your size/ item in especially for you (subject to availability).
- The exchange item will be sent out to you with free Shipping within the UK and at a discounted rate for EU and International customers. Please note that only the first exchange item will be sent out with free/ discounted shipping. Any subsequent exchanges will incur normal shipping charges, which will be payable prior to the item being shipped. We will contact you with shipping costs.
