RETURNS

When returning items (shoes, bags, Ready-to-Wear) to us, please ensure they are in a new, unworn, not stained, unused, undamaged condition, well packaged in their original packaging (BY FAR carton box, shoe/bag box, dust bags etc.) and protected. Please place the original BY FAR box inside another box in order to prevent damage during shipping. Items that do not meet the requirements of this Policy will not be accepted and will be sent back to you.

When trying on shoes, please be mindful not to scratch the soles or mark the shoe box. Please try on your shoes on a carpet or similar platform, as our soles are very delicate and can be scratched easily.

If you are returning a Ready-to-Wear item, please also ensure that all authentic tags and labels are attached.

For perfumes, please note that due to carrier’s limitations the product cannot be shipped back and therefore all perfume sales are final and no returns are accepted.

If your order includes complementary perfume samples, please note that when arranging your return you will have to remove the initial waybill and all stickers, otherwise the parcel will be returned to you. Kindly note that the perfume samples are not returnable.

All items are thoroughly inspected upon receipt, and we reserve the right to reject any returns that do not meet the above requirements.

If you made your purchase through a partnered retail location, then any return will need to be made in accordance with the return/cancellation policy of the relevant retailer and should not be returned directly to us.

Our return process is simple and fuss-free. If your purchase is not exactly what you are looking for, you have 14 days from receiving your order to arrange your return by following the steps below:

  1. Head to our Returns Portal.
  2. Enter your order number (Starting with # and followed by a five digit number e.g. #80080) and email address, exactly as it appears on your order confirmation email/invoice.
  3. Choose which items you’d like to return and let us know why.
  4. Confirm your original delivery information (amend if needed).
  5. Select the shipping method you’ll be returning your order by:
