Do you have a Holiday Return Policy?
What is your return and exchange policy?
We want you to love your Birdies. If you're not completely satisfied with your shoes, we will accept a return or exchange within 30 days* of the purchase date, no questions asked! That's right—wear your Birdies around the house and even take them for a walk outside to make sure the fit and comfort are just right. If something feels off, shipping's on us for returns and exchanges in the US. You can begin your return or exchange by visiting our Returns Center.
Once you receive a shipping label or Happy Returns barcode, follow the instructions in your return confirmation email to send your Birdies back to us within 14 days of initiating your return. We will issue a refund to the original form of payment once we receive your Birdies. Please be sure to return all items received in your order, including the shoe box and dust bag, if applicable.
Birdies offers two methods of exchanging for your convenience. You can read more about these options in ‘What is a Standard Exchange?’ and ‘What is an Instant Exchange?'
Birdies will consider a late return if the product is unworn and available on our site. You may contact our expert support team to request an exception for your late return. Any exceptions to this policy are made at our team’s discretion and photos may be required to proceed.
*A refund will not be processed if the returned shoes show signs of heavy wear.
Please note that the 30-day fit guarantee does not apply to items marked as final sale. Final sale products, including all customized Birdies, are not eligible for return. Customized Birdies are final sale due to their personalized nature, and we cannot offer returns or exchanges unless there is a product defect.
If you are experiencing issues with your final sale or customized Birdies, please contact our support team for assistance with defective/ damaged shoes, incorrect color/ size, pain or discomfort due to fit, and incorrect or unacceptable customization results. Please note that all exceptions to this policy are granted at the discretion of our support team.
What is a Standard Exchange?
For standard exchanges, your new order will be processed 1-3 days after your return has been received by the carrier. You will have 14 days from the time of submission to drop off your Birdies. Return your birdies within 14 days of receiving your confirmation.
Keep an eye out for a confirmation email including your new order number and tracking information. Please note that selecting a standard exchange does not hold inventory– sending back your return ASAP will help ensure you get the size you want if we are low in inventory!
What is an Instant Exchange?
Looking to get the right fit sooner? In our portal, you can choose between a regular exchange or an ‘instant exchange.’ A temporary charge will be placed on your card for the price of the returned item(s) in order for us to process the exchange instantly! This ensures you receive your desired Birdies in case they become unavailable.
You will have 14 days to return your items before the temporary hold becomes a permanent charge. If your returned Birdies are confirmed in transit before the 14 day window ends, you will not be charged. If you decide you’d like to keep the original item, the charge will remain permanent unless it is returned. Contact our support team if you have any questions!
What is Happy Returns?
Happy Returns is a simpler, more sustainable way for you to return or exchange your Birdies. Simply initiate your return via our Returns Center and opt to drop your Birdies off at one of Happy Returns’ 5,000+ Return Bars across the United States. Click here to locate the Return Bar nearest to you.
Please note: not all products are returnable using Happy Returns. If you do not see the Happy Returns option as you initiate your return via our Returns Center, we will provide instructions on how to print the return label and drop your Birdies off to the logistics carrier.
If you do choose to return via Happy Returns, you will receive an email with a QR code that you will then show at your local Return Bar. Without a QR code, they will not be able to accept your return, so please be sure to initiate the return online and get a QR code before heading to a Return Bar. If you cannot locate the email, please contact our support team for further assistance. Once your return is accepted, your refund, store credit, or exchange will be processed within 24 hours.
Please be sure to return all items received in your order, including the shoe box and dust bag, if applicable.
Can I return my online purchase at the Birdies store?
Yes! Please have your order number and email address handy when you stop by.
Can I return or exchange my gifted Birdies?
Absolutely– you may exchange your gifted Birdies for a new pair or return them for a store credit that never expires!
What happens if the item I want to exchange for is sold out?
What a bummer! No worries– a refund will be issued to the original form of payment in the event that the requested item for exchange is out of stock. Contact our support team if you’d instead like to exchange for something else!
I purchased a pair of customized Birdies, can I return or exchange them?
These custom orders are final sale and cannot be returned or exchanged as they are made specially for you! Of course, if there is a defect or other issue with your customer order, please contact our support team for assistance.
How do I return from international regions?
We offer returns on all eligible items within 30 days from the date of purchase. To cover international shipping and handling fees, a $20 flat rate will be deducted from the refund amount and a Canada Post return shipping label will be provided via email. Canadian orders are not eligible for exchanges in the returns center, but you may begin your return here.
If you would like to reclaim the duties paid, please download this FORM from the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA). To complete the form, you will need 2 pieces of supporting documentation to be refunded by CBSA:
- Your order refund confirmation receipt from Birdies which will be emailed to you once the refund has been issued.
- The import details report that shows how much was paid in duties and taxes. To get this report, please email our international shipping carrier with your Passport Tracking # in the subject line to [email protected] and they will reply with the necessary document.
You will only be able to submit for a refund of your duties and taxes once the refund for your order has been issued by Birdies. Submitting this form and documentation pertains to receiving a refund on your duties and taxes from the CBSA, not the non-refundable shipping cost charged by Birdies.
If you need further assistance filing to reclaim your duties and taxes, please reach out to [email protected].
We offer returns on all items within 30 days from the date of purchase. However, we do not currently provide a return shipping label for orders from the UK or Australia. You are responsible for shipping your return to Birdies, at your own cost. Shipping fees, duties and taxes are non-refundable. At this time, we do not offer exchanges on international orders.
Please contact our support team for the return address and further instructions!

What is the 30-day fit guarantee?
At Birdies, we’re committed to comfort so we guarantee the fit of your Birdies. You can even wear your Birdies around the house and take them for a walk outside to make sure the fit and comfort are just right.* If something feels off, shipping's on us for returns and exchanges in the US within 30 days of the purchase date, no questions asked. 100% happiness. Zero risk. What’s not to like about that?
The 30-day fit guarantee does not apply to items marked as final sale. Final sale products, including all customized Birdies, are not eligible for return. Customized Birdies are final sale due to their personalized nature, and we cannot offer returns or exchanges unless there is a product defect.
If you are experiencing issues with your final sale or customized Birdies, please contact our support team for assistance with defective/ damaged shoes, incorrect color/ size, pain/discomfort due to fit, and incorrect/unacceptable customization results. Please note that all exceptions to this are granted at the discretion of our support team.
*A refund will not be processed if the returned shoes show signs of heavy wear.
What size should I order?
Birdies are available in whole and half sizes from 5-12*, excluding 11.5. Birdies also offers certain silhouettes in wide sizing as well!
Most of our styles fit true to size. Birdies should fit snugly at first and will stretch and mold to your foot’s unique shape. Look for detailed sizing notes in the product description for each pair of Birdies when browsing on the website, or you can visit our detailed Size Guide page for detailed information by style. We suggest reviewing the notes for the Birdies you are ordering to get the right size!
Birdies can also work for wide and narrow feet:
Our Starling comes in a wide width in these colors! Don’t see the color you like? Going up a half-size in our standard width shoes can add the extra wiggle room needed for maximum comfort and style!
Alternatively, those with narrow feet are encouraged to try a half size down for a secure and comfortable fit.
Still unsure? Our 30 day fit guarantee allows you to try Birdies risk free! Reach out to our expert customer support team for guidance on sizing or to request a size!
*Select styles are made available in size 11.5 & 13.
Do birdies have arch support?
Yes, Birdies have many features including a heel cookie that contribute to overall comfort and support. Birdies do not replace the function of orthotic devices.
Some Birdies do come with removable insoles, and you can swap in your orthotics if necessary! We suggest going up a half size for extra room if you plan to incorporate orthotic support.
Will my birdies stretch?
Yes, Birdies will stretch and mold to your foot after just a few wears. If your Birdies feel snug at first, you can expect them to loosen up a bit.
However, if there is any pinching or extreme discomfort, we recommend trying the next half size up!
HOW CAN I CONTACT A BIRDIES REPRESENTATIVE?

HOW CAN I GIVE YOU FEEDBACK?
We would love to hear from you! Please reach out to us at [email protected].
How do you clean your birdies?
We recommend sprinkling the inside with baking soda when they get a bit dirty. It will absorb and freshen them up a bit, and you can dump out any excess baking soda that does not absorb. As for the outside, we recommend using a soft bristled brush to wipe away any dirt or spots, but do keep your Birdies away from water.
Details on caring for specific materials can be found below:
THE PAIR I WANT IS SOLD-OUT, WHAT CAN I DO?
We're sorry about that! Our seasonal colors are typically created in small batches, and once they're sold-out, we typically don't bring them back.
However, there is a small chance that a few more pairs will trickle into inventory. To be notified of your desired style and size coming back in stock, be sure to join the waitlist when you select your size online to ensure that you're the first to know once they are available again.
You can also reach out to our San Francisco store by calling (415) 263-9668 to see if they have your desired Birdies in stock.
We release new colors many times a year, so hopefully, you can find a pair of Birdies that fit your style!
Are birdies insoles removable?
Are birdies waterproof?
Although our Falcon Booties are water resistant, it is strongly recommended that you keep all Birdies away from water! The delicate textiles and fabrics used to craft your Birdies could become damaged if they make contact with excessive moisture, and we definitely don’t want that. Keep your Birdies safely stashed away on rainy days!
Are birdies vegan?
Birdies offers multiple vegan options, which can be found here. When browsing our products, look out for a leaf icon which indicates if a shoe is vegan.

Please expect a 3 week lead time for us to work on your monogrammed shoes to get them just right.
That’s okay– we suggest taking advantage of our 30-day fit guarantee and order the style you’d like to be customized without the customizations.

If you have any questions or would like any guidance on sizing, you can also contact our support team!
What order should the letters in my monogram go in?
If you select our Block Font style: we recommend either putting your first initial on both shoes or your first initial on the right shoe and last initial on the left shoe.
If you select our Monogram Font style: we recommend following the cadence of a traditional monogram with first initial, last initial, then middle initial.
How do I edit my customizations?
If you’ve already input your initials and added your monogrammed product to your cart and need to make a change, go ahead and remove the item from your cart and restart the process.
Please be sure to double check your initials before placing an order, as they cannot be changed once an order has been placed.
What do I do if my order with customizations is incorrect?
Oh no! Mistakes can happen, but we are committed to finding a resolution. Simply contact our support team with photos of your Birdies and we’ll take things from there!
