Skatesus.com Edea Boot Sizing Trial Program
SkatesUS.com offers a very unique service to our customers we call the Boot Sizing Trial Program. The objective is to provide you with the confidence in knowing you have made the right decision in your size and model selection.
How do I partake in this offer?
When placing your initial order, request that you are interested in utilizing this service. We will request a foot tracing to estimate a size to start with. We will send you your initial order with a return label. Try the boot on and take note of how it feels: Is it too long? Too short? Too wide or narrow*? If the boot does not meet your preference, send it back and specify if you would like the next size up or down. Once we receive this pair back, we will send you the next size and cover shipping, up to an additional 2 total exchanges. It’s that easy!
*EDEA boots are commonly stocked in a standard “C” width in the ball of the foot with a “B” width in the heel. If the length is correct, but the boot feels tight, painful, or too big, the boot needs to be customized by shaping the micro carbon structure. We would be happy to shape the purchased boot for you, free of charge, once specifications are confirmed. If you believe shaping would resolve the issue, please contact us so we can collect the information we need to shape the boot. For shaping, SkatesUS.com will use the tracing originally sent for sizing along with your feedback, so please make sure the tracing is as accurate as possible! Call a representative for more information or visit the Learning Center Section of our website!
SkatesUS.com will charge the full price of the boots, plus initial shipping, at time of shipment and will include a return label upon request. Through this program, the customer pays for the original outbound shipping plus the price of the boots. Skate US, Inc. will cover the remaining shipping charges up to two (2) additional exchanges. The customer must return the boots within 60 days, as outlined in our Exchange Policy. If the boots are not returned within 60 days, they are not eligible for refund or exchange. If returned, and the boots and/or components are in less than “New” condition, or missing components, the items will be removed from this program and the transaction will proceed with normal charges for outbound shipping, and item(s) will be subjective to a restocking fee upon their return.
SKATESUS.COM PRODUCT SUPPORT
SkatesUS.com will do everything possible to ensure quality assurance and support. If you receive a damaged or “defective” item, an incorrect item, or something is missing please call or E-mail one of our representatives immediately to report the error. In instances where a product is suspected of having a “defect,” we will collaborate directly with the manufacturer to determine perceived issues with the product, which means an immediate answer is not always available. However, we will do our best to resolve the situation as quickly as possible. For all requests, please include the invoice number or a copy of the receipt in order to help speed up the process.
Please note that if the requested item is not returned to SkatesUS.com within 60 days from the date of receipt or written correspondence (unless otherwise authorized by a SkatesUS.com representative), SkatesUS.com will take no further action and the request will be considered complete.
