Warranty Help

Warranty Help

Many of our most popular brands come with a warranty or functionally similar policy. If something happened with your shoes that isn’t right, please fill out this Google Form and we’ll get back to you with next steps.




What to expect:

Once we receive your request through the form, we’ll send you an email within a few days to confirm.

Where possible we submit warrantees in batches to our suppliers every 2-3 weeks.

We’ll share relevant details with our suppliers when submitting a claim, such as your name and date of purchase.

Once we get confirmation that they can cover the issue under their policies, we'll let you know what options we can offer you such as a refund, store credit, repairs reimbursement, etc.

If you are set on a replacement, we can help you with that as a new order.


What qualifies?

Our suppliers are known for standing behind their shoes. Each of their policies is slightly different, but they all want to ensure you have an excellent experience. Coverage ranges from 6 months to 2 years, with most brands offering 1 year coverage.

The types of issues that are often covered by these policies can include premature wear, sole separation, waterproof lining issues, stitching and parts issues, etc.

Regular wear and tear is not covered, but if you see consistent wear patterns in your footwear, that can be a great way to learn about your movement habits. It can also indicate if your shoe sizing or fit needs are being met. We're happy to talk about wear patterns and pass along tips and resources.

For durability, we often expect shoes used for regular running (or other activities that are very demanding on the shoe materials and construction) to last around 6 months to a year, casual daily wear shoes to last a year or two, and shoes that are worn as part of a rotation or once in a while to last quite a while. Everyone puts different demands on their shoes, so this is a rough estimate based on the general feedback we get. See more about how to get the most out of your shoes here.


    What about Xero's 5000 Mile Sole Policy or Revivo?

    While all Xero shoes come with a 5000 mile sole coverage, this may be more useful for their American customers buying directly from the brand. The way it works is that customers whose Xero shoes wear through the sole within that 5000 miles can ask to use that policy, and if it's approved they would get a coupon for a replacement to be used on Xero's website. However, with shipping and duties, it can end up being not that much of a discount for us in Canada. If you've had a Xero sole wear very thin, reach out to us anyways and we'll see if there's anything we can do.

    ReVivo, Vivobarefoot's official refurbishment service, is currently only available within the UK. Vivobarefoot Canada is aware of the demand to provide this type of service in Canada and as far as we're aware, they would like to set that up when possible. In the meantime they have done brand collaborations with national footwear care services, and may be able to provide a recommendation for you.
