We’re not happy until you’re 100% satisfied with the fit of your new shoes. So if they’re anything short of perfect, simply send them back. The Next Pair has a 30 day Australia wide shipping returns/exchange policy for all online purchases, provided the items are unworn, in the state you received them, and in the original packaging.
A few things to be mindful of when returning or exchanging shoes.
- The branded box is just as important as the shoes themselves, so please do not alter or tamper with it in any way. Do not attach shipping forms, tape or mark the box. Doing so can result in your return being rejected.
- We are unable to accept shoes returned with marked, soiled or dirty soles. We advise that when you try on your new shoes for the first time you do wear socks and test them out on carpet, especially on lighter colour shoes for precautionary reasons.
- We recommend you send your parcel via Registered Post. This ensures the parcel is assigned a tracking number so we can safely track your return parcel's journey back to us. Please drop your return off at any Australia Post office.
- We reserve the right to refuse a return if the above conditions have not been adhered to.
- The customer is responsible for all shipping fees on returns for change of mind, size or item exchanges.We will only cover the cost of return postage if we have shipped you the wrong items or if any items are faulty.
- We understand shipping can be expensive so please consider using the Australia Post returns portal to purchase and print your returns label for a flat fee of $12.20 Australia wide. This is recommended for customers located outside of metropolitan Sydney. More details below.
NOTE: Paypal is offering free returns for orders made with Paypal, see details below.

Shoe sizing is really confusing, even for us at The Next Pair. There is no universal size guide, every model or make is different, and no one foot is the same. If the shoes you have purchased just don’t fit you perfectly, an exchange to the correct size won’t be a problem. Simply return your incorrect sized shoes to us unworn, in its original condition including original shoe box within 30 days from the date of dispatch.
To return for an exchange in size:
1. Complete a copy of The Next Pair's online returns form and email it back to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please ensure your exchange adheres to our returns policy.
2. Pack up your unworn shoes into its original branded shoe box and place this into another carton.
3. Clearly mark the external carton with your order number to ensure prompt processing of your return.
4. Drop the carton off at your nearest post office for collection (we recommend returning to us via Registered Post).
Returns may take up to 2-4 business days to reach our warehouse. Exchanges will be processed within 1-2 business days from the day we receive the returned shoes. Once the exchange has been processed and dispatched from our warehouse, the customer will receive an email notification with tracking details.
Should the size you request for an exchange not be available, we will be happy to provide you with a full refund. Please refer to our refunds process if this is the case.
