Return & Exchange Policy

Changed your mind? No Problem! We want you to love your purchase, but if you have to return or exchange you can do so. Please read our full policy below.


Return can be made within 14 days of the original purchase date*. All items must be in sellable condition, unworn, with hangtags attached and accompanied by the original receipt (sorry, no exceptions) and method of payment. Some exceptions apply (see Exceptions below). After 14 days you will be able to exchange only, providing the above conditions are met. 

*Returns that received Free Shipping: Please note, as a small business, offering Free Shipping is something we want to do for our customers, but comes at a cost to us as a small business. We are happy to absorb this cost for you to facilitate your order(s). However, in the event you return the stock, we are in a situation where we incur additional fees, which we cannot afford as a small business. If you return your order that you received free shipping on, either $12 (Ontario) or $15 (the rest of Canada) will be deducted from your refund amount to cover the cost of the shipping to you. If you return a partial order, we will evaluate what shipping you would have qualified for based on the items you are keeping and adjust accordingly. 


We will gladly help you with any exchanges within 21 days of the original purchase date*. All items must be in saleable condition, unworn, with hangtags attached and accompanied by the original receipt (sorry, no exceptions) and method of payment. If you purchased online, your original 'order confirmation' is what you will need. Exchanges can only be done in store. Some exceptions apply. All items are FINAL SALE AFTER 21 DAYS (sorry, no exceptions).

When trying on any shoes we highly recommend trying them on carpet to prevent any damage, including taps being scratched in case the shoes need to be returned. Tap shoes with scratched taps cannot be returned.

*Purchase date refers to the date on the order receipt and not the date that the order was received, via pickup or shipping.

Pointe Shoe Returns

Pointe shoes cannot be returned if ribbons or elastics have been sewn onto them or if they have any signs of wear or dirt. Shoes that have been fit during a pointe shoe fitting appointment are subject to a 20% restocking fee if returned.

All pointe shoe customizations are non-refundable once the service has been completed.

Late or missing refunds 

If you haven’t received a refund yet, first check your bank account or credit card statement. There is often some processing time before a refund is posted. Then contact your bank or credit card company, it may take some time before your refund is officially posted. If you’ve done all of this and you still have not received your refund yet, please contact us at quoting the order number in the subject field.


If the item was marked as a gift when purchased in-store or online and shipped directly to you, you’ll receive a gift credit for the value of your return. Once the returned item is received, a gift certificate will be mailed to you.

If the item wasn’t marked as a gift when purchased, or the gift giver had the order shipped to themselves to give to you later, we will send a refund to the gift giver.
