Unfortunately, we are unable to offer free return shipping at this time. We offer returns at a flat shipping rate of $10. 

Items must be in new condition that have not been worn, altered or used within 14 days of the delivery date. These items must be in their original packaging and in NEW condition. 

We acknowledge that shoes will need to be tried on in order to determine if they are the right fit. Please only try on shoes indoors in a clean, scent free, pet hair free environment. Lightly lace shoes if needed and use minimal walking or movement to test the footwear. 

When returning, please inspect shoes inside & out and make sure there is no dirt, pet hair or anything on the bottom of the soles. We will inspect the items when returned and full credit will be given if we are able to resell the item. If there are any issues, a cleaning & restocking fee will be assessed and taken out of the refund. 

Return options:

Store Credit:

If you choose to return for store credit, a pre-paid return label will be provided to you for free! We only pay shipping for one exchange. If the second shipment does not work out, you will be responsible for the cost of shipping back.

Items must be shipped back and received at Groundwork in order to issue store credit. Once we receive your order we will email you a store credit that can be used to place a new order.


We are happy to exchange your return for another size or color, if we have it in stock. If not, store credit will be issued. 

Exchange will be sent as soon as the original order is received here at Groundwork. 


Items must be shipped back and received at Groundwork in order to start the refund process. Refunds are processed within 2 to 5 days and will be re-credited to the original method of payment.
