Shopping

Sizing charts converting USA sizes, UK sizes and European sizes to New Zealand sizes are provided on this site. Use this chart to guide you in selecting what shoe size to purchase.

However, sizing of shoes often varies between suppliers, and even by the same supplier. For example, a size 12 shoe (in USA sizes) made by one supplier may be larger than a size 12 shoe (in USA sizes) made by that same supplier or by another supplier.

Around Twelve Ltd has taken steps to reduce the risk of purchasing the wrong size shoe. Risk is reduced in the following ways:

(1) Some product descriptions include notes about sizing.

(2) If a style is particularly large or small, we sometimes show them on the website as the size that we believe they are. This will be noted on the shoe description. For example, if a shoe is sized small, we may note that the European Size 44 is sized as an NZ size 11 instead of an NZ size 12.

(3) If you have concerns about sizing, you are welcome to phone us for confirmation – call Kimberley on 027 210 1860.

(4) If you are a regular customer, we will often check your past sales history to see if the shoes you have ordered are sized comparably to the ones you have purchased in the past. If we believe you may have ordered the wrong size, we will contact you. 


If you do select the wrong shoe size, Around Twelve will cover the freight costs associated with sending out the replacement size. However, you will need to cover the costs associated with returning the original shoes.

 

 
PU is short for polyurethane. It is a man-made material which is less expensive than leather. Note that leather is the highest quality material used in shoemaking.

Patent (either Patent Leather or Patent PU) is material that has a very shiny appearance. 

You may exchange returned products for other products, providing that:

The price of the exchanged product is the same, or less than, that of the original product*.
Any tags attached to the returned products remain attached;
Returned products are received within 28 days of the purchase date (as shown on the invoice); and
Returned products are in their original condition.
* Any difference in prices will be refunded, after allowing for any freight costs. Freight costs don’t apply if the product is being exchanged for the same product in a different size (as outlined below).

If you are exchanging the product for a different style or a different colour, you must pay the associated freight costs. This includes the $8.00 charge for sending the original product (if the sale was for less than $100), freight costs to return the product and a $8.00 charge for sending the replacement product.

If you need to exchange the product for the same product in a different size, Around Twelve will cover the cost of freight to send you the exchanged product! You will therefore only pay the freight charge (if applicable) to receive the original product, plus any freight costs associated with returning the original product. We will pay the freight for sending you the replacement product.

This minimises the risk associated with selecting the wrong size.

Payment

We charge a standard fee of $8.00 freight per sale anywhere in New Zealand, including rural delivery. However, all sales over the value of $100 are freight free!

If you receive faulty goods, this freight cost (along with the full price of the faulty product) will be refunded to you. In addition, we will contact you to arrange free return of your faulty product. See the  for more details about the return of faulty goods.

If you need to exchange the product for the same product in a different size, Around Twelve will cover the cost of freight to send you the exchanged product! You will therefore only pay the freight charge (if applicable) to receive the original product, plus any freight costs associated with returning the original product. We will pay the freight for sending you the replacement product.

If you decide to return products that do not have any faults or exchange products for a different style or colour, you must arrange and pay for freight. It is recommended that you use a tracked courier as Around Twelve does not accept any responsibility for goods lost in transit. Also note that the return courier costs depend on the prices charged by your courier. It is quite possible that your courier will charge more than $8.00 to return a product. Around Twelve will not refund the $8.00 freight charge associated with supplying you with your product, but will give a 100% refund of the product price if the conditions of the refund policy are met.

We accept payment by Paypal, Visa, Mastercard, and direct debit. If you physically collect the items, or we drop them off to you, payment in cash is also accepted.

We may also be able to include shoes of your description in an upcoming order. However, depending on when orders are due to be placed, and on whether products are transported by air or by ship, there may be several months delay in the receipt of products.

If we are not able to supply you with the shoes you need within the timeframes you need them, we may be able to identify other suppliers of the shoes you need.

 
If you request an appointment you will be able to try the full range of shoes on.
