Customer Questions and Testimonials for Mod Shoes
Below is a list of questions that we are frequently asked. Hopefully you will find some information to help you here. If not, please feel free to use the chat facility, we will try and get back to you within 24 hours (weekdays)
Do I have to pay postage?
We offer free delivery on orders over £25. On orders less in value the postage charge is £2.95. This applies to UK orders only. Wherever possible we send the next working day, but our stock is very popular, so occasionally there are times when we are waiting for stock to arrive. If this is the case we will email or text you to let you know.
We use two different carriers to send your parcels. On most UK mainland orders over £50 we use DPD next working day tracked and signed for delivery. If you wish to choose Royal Mail signed for instead, you are able to do so on the order form.
For UK orders under £50 we use Royal Mail signed for.
Do you send to countries outside the UK?
We send to many countries, the full list is at the checkout. Postage cost to EU is £10, rest of world £25. They are sent by Royal Mail tracked and signed for.
What if I’m not in ?
You will receive a text and/or email from DPD asking if you have any delivery instructions. You can let them know if you would prefer an alternative time, or ask for them to leave in a safe place
What happens if they don’t fit ?
As long as the shoes are in perfect, unworn condition, we are happy to exchange or refund. However the cost of return is the responsibility of the customer. We recommend Royal Mail 2nd Class Signed For as the most cost effective and safe option for returns.
If in doubt about your size, you can order 2 pairs and return the unwanted pair for free (full price shoes, UK inland only)
How to ensure that the shoes are a good fit
1. Try the shoes on a floor / surface, which is carpeted , meaning it is NOT going to scratch the bottoms, ideally you should be sitting down
2. Make sure that you undo the shoes fully, enough to get the shoes on easily, do not force your feet in.
3. Use a shoe horn if necessary
4. The shoes should be snug but not tight
5. Please make sure that your feet are warm, ideally we advise trying on after 12 mid day when your feet are at their biggest
6. If the shoes are snug, but you can still move your toes, you should be good as they will grow a little
7. If the shoes are tight or just a bit too snug for comfort, please stay seated for at least 10 mins , ideally 20 mins. If the shoes are still too tight please send them back for a bigger size
8. Can we stress that if you wear the shoes, and they even show any sign of wear (eg scratches or marks on sole, scuffs or creases in leather) we can not give you a refund.
9. The reason we can’t give you a refund if the shoes show signs of wear, is because we only like to sell the best shoes, and customers expect their shoes to turn up in tip top fresh condition. If shoes are returned in less than perfect condition, we are unable to re-sell.
10. If you do decide to wear the shoes out, to an event, just up the road etc, to see if they loosen up, then sorry we can’t refund them, as you have broken the termas and conditions for exchange.
Non UK Returns
We are happy to accept returns, however if you wish to have a replacement sent there will be an additional delivery charge.
How does the sizing work?
We use the following size conversions. Please be aware that different designs are designed to be bigger than others. We try our best on the product page to mention sizing.
Please Note that are shoes are made mainly in Spain & Portugal and Euro to UK Conversion means that the shoes normally come up a little big. The reason is that a 43, is more like 9 and 1/4 .

How much time do I have to return them?
Any returns must be back to Mod Shoes within 30 days. This is currently consumer law. If you decide to send them back after 30 days, Mod Shoes will simply put them back in the post to you. I know this sounds a bit harsh but it is company procedure
Can I ring about my order ?
Yes but we only work office hours. Use the chat contact form on the website, it is checked often and responded to.
How do I send them back?
All return information, including cut out address label is on the invoice. Please do not forget to include the paperwork and your instructions ie refund or exchange request. Please return in the original packaging.
How quickly will I get my money back?
We process returns as quickly as possible, but it could take a few days. If you have paid by Worldpay the funds can take a little longer to show in your bank account. We will email you to let you know that your refund has been processed.
Can I visit your shop ?
We are not an actual shop, but we are happy for our customers to visit our unit in Peterborough. Please ring first though, as we are not always here.
How quickly will i get my shoes ?
We dispatch every week day. If we receive your order by 2pm we will aim to dispatch the same day. DPD is next day delivery, Royal Mail can take up to a week. Obviously this will be longer if you are outside the UK.
Can I have my delivery sent to my workplace ?
We are happy to send to a different shipping address. But please note, we will only deliver to the address, not a next door neighbour, unless we have your permission.
I have got wide feet, do you have shoes suitable for me ?
We do not make shoes specifically for wide feet, but there is a section on the website showing shoes that are more suited to the wider foot
Where is the place to add my coupon code?
These shoes look like they have been worn ?
Please note we do not send out any shoes that have been worn. We do sometimes send out sale price shoes that have been tried on only. So occasionally in very few cases, they may be a small crease where someone has tried the shoes on before. It should be noted that leather shoes will crease almost immediately, and small marks can appear on leather soles just by rubbing together in the box during transit.
Where are you based?
UNIT 39 & 40 ASTON PARK,
As you may be aware, many of our shoes, especially the ladies ones, are limited edition runs. In many cases there are literally only 30 pairs of shoes in one colour total ! So as you would expect, some sizes sell out very quickly.
Depending on the shoe, we have to take the decision whether to run that colour and style again. So to help us to make that decision we run a waitlist to gauge popularity.
The Waitlist Function allows these things to happen;
1. As soon as stock comes in you get first notice via email.
2. We can judge whether the shoes should be re-made sooner.
So can we advise that even if you add your name to the waitlist, there is still a chance that a shoe might not be remade or restocked.
To answer the question “why can’t we always have stock of all shoes in all sizes?” We buy from small factories, but they have minimums, meaning that unfortunately we can’t just buy one pair of shoes, we have to buy a sizeable amount. The reason being that it takes time for the factory to set up the production for that particular shoe. So in some cases we would end up having to buy many shoes, just to sell one pair, the rest would then sit on the shelf, which we think that you would agree, is wasteful.
Hopefully this makes the situation clearer, as we would hate to mislead our customers.

CANCELLING YOUR ORDER
Mod Shoes try to get your order out as soon as possible.

Sale items are sale items because we will be running down this line. In this case we wont be able to offer you a refund on the shoes, unless they are faulty. All shoes are checked before they leave here. On sale items we will offer you a credit on a further purchase, for the price of the item.
