6.1. If you are not completely satisfied with your mail order purchase, please return your order to us within 14 days of receipt for a full refund on the cost of the Product(s) or an exchange. Exchanges are subject to availability. Products must be returned unworn and undamaged in their original packaging with the original purchase receipt. We cannot accept returns on hosiery products once packs have been opened for hygiene reasons, nor can we accept returns of used product care items.
6.2 To return: complete the Returns Form on the rear of your DUO receipt indicating clearly whether you would like an exchange or refund. Slide the product (in its box and with the tissue paper intact) into the mailout bag and seal using the glue strip provided. If you are returning hosiery or product care accessories on their own, please ensure they are suitable packaged and protected (such as in an A5 jiffy bag). Attach the sticky returns label we provide you on your receipt onto the outside of the parcel, covering the label containing your original delivery address where applicable. Follow the International Returns instructions contained in the despatch note/customer receipt. Make sure your goods are insured for you and are traceable. The cost of returning Products to Duo is borne by you.
6.3 All DUO Products are quality checked before they are despatched. Customers can expect DUO boots and shoes to remain of satisfactory quality throughout their reasonable life expectancy, providing they are maintained correctly and not misused. Footwear should only be tried on, on carpet to prevent marking the soles. Returned goods found to be worn, damaged, marked, soiled or scratched will not be refunded or exchanged. We cannot accept returns on hosiery products once packs have been opened for hygiene reasons; nor can we accept returns of used product care items.
6.4 Duo cannot guarantee against standard wear and tear and we reserve the right to seek a second opinion from an independent body when defect inspections are required. If a Product is deemed to have a manufacturing defect or is not fit for purpose we will offer an exchange or refund and in these instances will bear the cost of return postage.
6.5 If the product has been worn and is deemed to have a minor fault within 6 months of purchase, we will usually make a repair. If we are unable to repair a Product, we will exchange or refund, at our discretion. DUO will assess each repair claim independently. Your statutory rights are not affected. Due to the nature of hosiery, we can only accept ladders as faults if they were present when you first opened the packet.
6.6 Removal of footbeds and replacement with different soles or changing the heel or any other components will invalidate DUO’s guarantee of reasonable wear and tear. DUO boots and shoes are not designed to take any other soles or heels other than its own. Please note that DUO footwear is not manufactured for use with orthotics which can result in abnormal wearing of soles, we therefore regret to inform you that the use of orthotics in our footwear negates guarantees to soles, zips and stitching.
6.7 We cannot accept returns on hosiery products if the package has been opened or the seal broken for hygiene reasons unless the item is faulty. Due to the nature of hosiery, we can only accept ladders as faults if they were present when you first opened the packet. We do not accept returns of used product care items.
