Are your stores open?
Update: Following recent announcements on the easing of restrictions, our Auckland stores will effectively reopen on Sunday the 7th of March 2021 with safety protocols in place to comply with all Government directives. Please see below for our COVID-safe plan.
Hygiene and social distancing measures
To help make our stores safer, we’ve introduced several measures to help us maintain an appropriate distance from each other while in our stores. We will review and adapt these in-store measures as the environment evolves.
Introduce a limit to the number of customers in-store at any given time.
Our stores will have signage displayed with the max capacity allowed in-store at any one time.
If the store has reached capacity, the number of customers will be managed using a one in, one out policy.
Maintain 2 metres apart from each other where possible
Social distancing tape will be placed around our floors and seating areas. These can be found throughout the store as reminders, as well as areas where you may be required to queue.
Use EFTPOS/Paywave/Tap n Go services available
We strongly encourage you to use your card or phone to tap and pay instead of cash, whenever possible.
Use sanitisation station upon entering the store
A team member will be at the entry door to offer hand sanitiser which all customers will be required to use before entering the store.
Regular cleaning routines throughout the entire store
We apply the highest standard of cleanliness and hygiene across our stores. We have increased the routine cleaning of frequently touched hard surfaces.
Remove and put on your own footwear
Our team will still be available to assist you with any sizing questions you may have, however they will maintain 2-metre distance to comply with social distancing! We will also have disposable try-on socks and gloves available.
Training for team members on social distancing and additional hygiene measures
All of our team members will be required to complete a training course.
Thank you for playing your part in helping us practise social distancing. We appreciate your continued support as we work through this together.READ FULL ARTICLE
What is your latest Returns Policy for online purchases?
Please note that this policy applies to online purchases only. Please see our In-store Returns Policy for more information on purchases made in-store.
We're constantly checking Government updates and directives, so if a town, region or city-wide lockdown impacts your ability to return your item, don't worry! Our 30 day returns policy remains, but we won't count the days that stores and/or post offices are closed.
Need to return your items? We want you to be completely satisfied with our products and we will gladly accept returns within 30 days of receipt where the products are in new, unworn with tags attached and in their original packaging.
3 simple conditions for a successful return:
RETURNED WITHIN 30 DAYS OF PURCHASE
ITEM(S) ARE UNWORN & UNDAMAGED
IN ORIGINAL PACKAGING AND CONDITION
Item(s) were purchased in the last 30 days and proof of purchase can be provided.
Item(s) must be unworn, unwashed, or otherwise undamaged with original tags attached

Online purchases using credit/debit cards may be refunded or exchanged in-store or online.
Online purchases using PayPal can only be returned online for a full refund. PayPal orders cannot be refunded in-store. As PayPal is a heavily encrypted, secure payment method, our store systems are unable to process PayPal refunds. Please see our article on PayPal returns for more information.
Online purchases using Afterpay can be returned online and in-store.
Cost of returns
You are responsible for the costs of returning any item(s) to our online store. Any returned item(s) are your property and remain your responsibility until they reach our warehouse.
If you would like to avoid return postage fees, you are welcome to visit one of our stores and return or exchange your shoes in person. Please note that we cannot facilitate Paypal refunds in store. All online returns must be lodged here.
Please note that all online returns must be sent from at your local post office. We do not accept direct returns to the warehouse.
Once you have dropped your parcel off at the Post Office, please allow some time for your item to reach our warehouse. Our top tip is to keep a note of your return tracking number, that way you can track your order and see when it reaches us.
Upon receipt, a returned item will be processed by our returns warehouse within 2-3 business days.
Once processed, the refund will show in your account within 2-5 business days, depending on your financial institution.
If you believe you have received a faulty item, please do not submit a return as our returns warehouse does not process faulty assessments. Please read about our Faulty Assessment process here.
If you believe your online purchase arrived with a manufacturing fault, or you received something different to your original order, we'll be happy to cover the cost of the return.
If this is the case, please contact our Skechers Experts below with as many details as possible about the order. We'll request your order/receipt number and photographs of the tongues, tops, sides, soles and fault.READ FULL ARTICLE
