Store Policies

In Store Purchases
Items purchased in our stores (with the exception of Hats) can be returned for refunds, store credit or exchange within 30 days of purchase provided they show NO SIGNS OF WEAR.  We do not offer exchanges or returns for products that have been worn.  If they are being bought for a gift, and cannot be tried on in-store, make sure they are tried on over carpet, so the soles are not scuffed.  Any product with signs of wear is not eligible for return or exchange.  If you purchased a Hat as a gift, and it is the wrong size, a hat can be exchanged for another hat or for store credit.  We do not offer refunds on hats.

If your product has a manufacturer’s defect that was not noticeable at the time of purchase, we will replace the product if at all possible, otherwise, we will give you store credit for the amount of your purchase price.

Online Purchase Policy

We want you to Buy with Confidence!

If you received your purchase and aren’t 100% satisfied, you are welcome to return it to our headquarters within 30 days of the ship date for a Refund, Exchange, or Store Credit subject to the following conditions:.

  • Items must be in NEW condition (never worn) and undamaged. We recommend that you try them on in a carpeted area so that you do not scuff the sole.  If the sole shows signs of scuffing, we will not accept them. Defective items should be returned within 1 week of the ship date – please inspect your item for any defects upon arrival.
  • The item is not on-sale.  Sale Boots may be exchanged for another product or for store credit, but they are NOT eligible for refunds.  Use of a promotional code is not considered a Sale Item.
  • The item is not a custom order or a special purchase.

CUSTOM ORDERS or SPECIAL ORDERS – Custom/special orders sales are final (unless there is a product defect), so make sure you know your size when ordering a custom or special order.

What constitutes a custom or special order?  If you ask us to reserve a style that is a custom boot or not a style that we currently carry, that is considered a Custom Order or Special Order.  All Special Order and Custom order sales are final, unless otherwise noted at the time of purchase in writing.  Requests for sizes that are not currently available on discontinued styles that we do carry but have still have limited sizing in-stock are also considered a special order.

SALE BOOTS – You may return a Discounted Boot for a Store Credit, but you may not return it for a Refund.  The same policy of returning it to our store within 15 days from the original ship date applies.

What does an ‘EXCLUSIVE STYLE’ mean?
The staff at The Boot Store designs many of the boots we sell. If it says Exclusive on it, either the design itself or modifications to an existing design, such as special toe or heel or the height of the shaft were made in-house by The Boot Store staff, and that style is only available at The Boot Store and

What does “CLEARANCE” mean?
A clearance boot is a style that either we have chosen to discontinue or the manufacturer has discontinued. All clearance styles are subject to our online return policy. We cannot order any additional sizes other than those shown online. All stock is subject to availability. Please be aware that our stock online is the same as the stock in our retail stores. Sometimes the boots featured on clearance have been out on the shelves for display and may have slight scuffs or scratches on the sole.

My boots arrived looking aged. Do you sell used boots?
No, we do not sell used boots and we will not ship you used boots. Rest assured we will not sell you a boot that has been worn outside of our store. Please note, when trying on your boots, please walk around on carpet (not brick or tile floors) to prevent scuffing of the sole.
