A. Unfortunately we do not price match but we strive to have competitive prices.
Q. How can I find a specific brand/style?
A. You can search the entire product range on site by using the search bar centred on the top of the screen. Alternatively, you may use the filters on the left hand side when you are browsing our categories to narrow down your choice.
Q. Items in my shopping cart have disappeared when I tried to check out. Why has this happened?
A. We do apologise that the product you wished to purchase is no longer available. The stock that you see on The Next Pair reflects what we have in real time. Having an item in your shopping cart does not mean you have purchased or put it on hold. The only time you can be sure that the product is yours is when the checkout process is complete and you have received a confirmation email.
Q. The shoe colours look different from the photos of the site?
A. The Next Pair adamantly attempts to portray product colors as accurately as possible in the images published on the website. However we cannot guarantee the product colours will exactly match the images displayed online. Possible discrepancies in color are due to the many variables in electronically reproducing color online. These variables include, but are not limited to, varying computer monitor models, settings, and limitations. The human eye's ability to perceive color also varies from person to person. The Next Pair will continuously improve its online colour accuracy.
