What Payment Methods Do You Accept?

What Is Your Returns Policy?

If you wish to return part/all of your order you may do so within 28 days of purchase as long as the product is unused and in saleable condition. Items may also be exchanged (subject to stock availability) if you include a note detailing what style/size/colour you want to exchange for - for orders where the final total is under €69, we need to charge a postage fee of €5.95 so Hand Footwear can send out your desired size/style. Any exchanges outside of Ireland must also pay a postage cost in order for us to send out a different style/size (same postage cost as original order).

You can either post the product back to us (to Hand Footwear, 47 Main St, Carrickmacross, Co Monaghan, A81YX03) or return it to Hand Footwear in Carrickmacross or in Monaghan town and we will process your refund immediately- minus any cost of delivery you paid e.g. if you bought a €50 pair of shoes and paid €55.95 including delivery, we will refund €50. 

If you choose to return the item by post, make sure to get proof of postage from post/courier.
Please note that orders not made in EURO are subject to fluctuating exchange rates i.e. If you decide to return an order or an item is not in stock, we refund the full EURO price which may differ slightly to a sterling price that you paid.
