Returning your item: Packaging

All orders which are returned should be sent back to us suitably packaged. Products that are damaged due to insufficient protection may be charged a restocking fee of up to 10% of the total price of item(s). Items packaged in a box (e.g. footwear) must be returned in sufficient packaging for added protection. Courier/postage label must not be applied directly to the product packaging (e.g courier label applied to inov-8 footwear box). Please see image below of examples;

Package the item in a suitable box or bag and ensure sufficient protection is added so the product isn't damaged in transit.

Then seal the outer box or bag and apply the returns label securely to the top.

DO NOT place the returns label on the inov-8 shoe box.

Instead, place the returns label on the outside box which the inov-8 shoe box sits inside of.

Orders from retail partners
If you have purchased your item from a Retailer Partner, you should return the item directly to the Retail Partner where the item was purchased. For items bought with one of inov-8’s Retail Partners, please contact them directly to arrange an exchange or refund, this includes any warranty queries.
Returning your item: What is normal wear and tear?
Normal wear and tear is defined as the wearing down of the sole or upper units of a shoe, while only wearing it for its intended use.

Let's say you purchased one of our road shoes and you're a triathlete who logs over 70 miles per week. While most of our road models can get you as many as 600 miles or more during the life of the shoe, chances are, once you've hit that threshold, the shoes have undergone some substantial "wear and tear."
Returns during sale/offer periods
During sale/offer periods there may be a slight delay of up to 7 days to complete the refund/exchange process.

Exceptions to the general returns & exchanges policy
The GORE-TEX® guarantee is for the lifetime of the product. Normal wear and tear or damage which has been inflicted on the product due to inappropriate use or incorrect care, are excluded from this guarantee. Product life cycle can be defined as anywhere from 6 months and up, depending on the use of the product. REMEMBER, if water makes it over the cuff of the shoe, GORE-TEX® is rendered useless. The membrane is designed to keep out moisture that falls below the top of your shoe. This does not affect your statutory rights.
