Our Happy Feet Guarantee

At Little Treads we understand buying children’s shoes online comes with challenges, sometimes what you received is not as expected, or you need a different shoe size. We would like to reassure you that we have a hassle-free return and exchange policy.

To be eligible for a refund or exchange, the shoes must be returned unworn, undamaged and in resalable condition (in their original intact box/packaging with no postage labels on boxes ) within 30 days of delivery. If shoes are not returned in a resalable condition we reserve the right to charge a 20% restocking fee. 

If the shoes are the incorrect size or you have a change of mind, then you are more than welcome to a refund (for full priced items) or store credit (sale items).

Return shipping costs are the customers responsibility, and it is strongly suggested that tracked postage is used. If Little Treads has not physically received your return, we cannot process the refund, store credit or exchange.
Little Treads reserves the right to refuse your return if the above conditions are not fully adhered to. 

If you paid via Paypal you could also take advantage of the Paypal Free Returns offer.

Refunds and Store Credits

Refunds are available for returned shoes that are full price. Items purchased on a temporary promotion (that have since been returned to full price) are also eligible. A refund will be provided for the cost of the shoes (postage is non-refundable) to the original method of payment. 

If your chosen method of payment was Afterpay, any payments made for that item will be refunded and upcoming payments will be cancelled. If it is a partial return on an Afterpay order, your total will be amended to reflect this and your repayments will be adjusted accordingly.

Shoes must be returned within 30 days of delivery. Refunds will be processed within 2 weeks of the return.

If you have returned a sale item, you will receive an email with instructions on how to redeem your store credit. Store credits expire 12 months from their creation date. 

Strictly no returns on Clearance Stock. This will be specified on the product page for clearance shoes.



If you have purchased an incorrect size, we will happily cover postage costs one-way to send you for your replacement pair back to you, once per order.(on full priced items only)

Items purchased at a discount, including using a discount code, are not covered for costs of one-way exchange shipping offer.  

If the size you wish to exchange for is not available a refund (full price stock only) or store credit will be issued. Exchange stock will only be sent once the returned shoes have been received and inspected.

Exchanging an item purchased on Sale? All postage costs are to be covered by the customer. Once your item has been returned we will send you a request for payment of the postage charge, which is at a discounted rate of $8.95 for regular and $13.95 for Express.  (If you require Express Post please include this on your returns form.)


If the items you have received are defective, these items will be replaced with the same size and style, and the cost of shipping the faulty products back to Little Treads will be cover.



If you believe there has been an error with your order, please contact us immediately to remedy the situation. If we agree that an error has occurred, the cost of shipping the product back to Little Treads will be covered.
