RETURNS/EXCHANGES

If you need to return part or all of your order, please follow the instructions below. You may return unworn shoes in their original packaging within 60 days of purchase to receive a refund via your original form of payment. 

We can only accept returns of shoes purchased directly from walkingcradles.com. If you purchased shoes from another retailer, you will need to contact them to arrange a return or exchange.

Try the shoes first and keep all boxes/materials.

Please take some time to try on your new shoes indoors on a clean surface to make sure you are happy with the fit and feel. Shoes with visible signs of wear cannot be returned or refunded. If you need to return shoes, they must be returned in their original shoe box. When you ship shoes back for an exchange or refund, please place the shoe box inside a shipping box (preferably the one used when you received the shipment). 

Please ship all returns to:  Walking Cradles, 1000 Biltmore Drive, Fenton, MO 63026.

Items purchased from walkingcradles.com may not be returned to any other retailer.

When completing the return form, please provide the reason(s) from the options given, or write in under "other."

All footwear will be inspected upon return and refunds processed for shoes that meet the criteria of "new and unworn, in their original condition."

Defective shoes will be accepted within one calendar year of the date of purchase. We will either replace the shoe with the exact style, size and color if it is still available. If it is unavailable we will refund the original amount paid.

HOW TO EXCHANGE

Option 2:  If you prefer to wait until we receive your return, please note that the items may not be available in your size/width.

Should you wish to wait for us to receive your return to try to process an exchange, please complete that information on the return form. Please note, we can only issue exchanges for the originally ordered shoe in a different size or width. If you are wanting a different shoe, you will simply need to return the item you don’t want and then place a new order on our website.

ROUTE PACKAGE PROTECTION POLICY

We have partnered with Route to offer package protection insurance for your purchases. By opting-in, you are agreeing to pay the listed amount to protect your shipment from lost, damaged or stolen items. All claims are handled through Route. If you do not select Route Package Protection insurance, you are releasing any responsibility on the part of The Walking Cradle Company, LLC and acknowledging that you understand claims can not be made directly with the Walking Cradle Company, LLC on lost, damaged or stolen items. In the event you did not opt-in to Route Package Protection, you will need to contact the carrier (USPS or UPS) with any claims for lost, stolen or damaged shipments. Route package protection is a final sale is is not refundable once purchased.

GIFT CARD POLICY

Gift cards are a final sale and are not refundable once purchased. 

BOGO REFUND POLICY

We process returns and refunds for any orders including a BOGO promotion at pro-rated amounts. For example, should you purchase one pair at $120.00 (full price) and the other at $100.00 (full price), less the 50% for the lesser priced shoe (-$50.00); should you return the full priced shoe, we will refund you the prorated amount.

Example:

 

FULL PRICE

BOGO DISCOUNT

NET PRICE

SHOE 1

$120.00

 

$120.00

SHOE 2

$100.00

(-$50.00)

$50.00

TOTAL

$220.00

 

$170.00

 

Refund Explained:
If ‘SHOE 1’ (full priced shoe) is returned, the amount refunded will be $70.00 (+ taxes paid). The total paid for the pair that was kept, ‘SHOE 2’ is thus full price--As the stipulation of Buy One Get One implies, if one pair is returned, the discount is then null & void once the other pair is returned.
