Items eligible for exchange or return must be in "new, unaltered and unused condition". The definition of new, unaltered and unused condition is: without showing signs of wear or damage in any way (and specifically for shoes, to include without limitations, foot impressions or imprints visible on the insole and/or discolored or dirty out soles as a result of use), and must not be a special order or a custom order, unless noted that it cannot be returned or has a different return policy time period other than that 30 days as may be noted in that item's description. Specific items such as Costumes, Chokers, Fishnets, facemasks and clothing/apparel typically worn without undergarments and Shoe Brushes are non-returnable and non-refundable.  Valid refunds exclude any postage paid to mail any items including warranty claims.

How do I make a Warranty Claim?
Warranty Policy: Original purchase receipt must be submitted for all warranty claims. GFranco Shoes provides a limited 30 day warranty due to manufacturer defects for GFranco shoes from the date of purchase.
All warranty claims must be made in writing emailed or mailed to GFranco Shoes within 30 days from the date of purchase or if the purchase was made online, when the item was delivered to the shipping address provided. At the sole discretion of GFranco Shoes, we may repair the item in lieu of replacing any defective item for valid claims that are reported to GFranco Shoes within the 30 day period stated above. Approval of or processing of claims are contingent upon inspection of item(s) once we receive it or of photos provided by customer to determine if the item is damaged as a result of a manufacturing defect and not misuse or other cause not within the control of GFranco Shoes.
Suede bottom shoes manufactured by GFranco Shoes are specifically designed to be used on professional grade wood floors or other non-abrasive or non-friction surfaces.  In particular, the use of any suede bottom dance shoe to dance or walk on any abrasive or friction causing surface, and specifically dancing on carpet, wood decking or concrete surfaces, or the use of indoor/outdoor soles beyond the scope of which these styles were designed voids the 30 day warranty.
GFranco shoes featuring indoor/outdoor soles may be worn outdoors but are not designed to be used to dance on outdoor or abrasive surfaces such as concrete or asphalt or for use as a daily walking shoe or walking outdoors for long distances.  
Color variations from photos depicted on our website are not considered a defect covered under warranty.  Lighting variations when photographing shoes or other items may cause colors to appear lighter or darker. Variations in sizing from one style to another is not considered a warranty issue. Rhinestones that have fallen off GFranco dance shoes after use or specifically, as a result of impact with other surfaces including the two sides of the shoes from dancing or performing splits, or misuse does not qualify as a valid warranty claim.
Customer is responsible for all shipping costs to return any item back to customer if the product is determined to be out of warranty or not to be caused by a manufacturer defect. 
To make a warranty claim, you must do the following:
1.   complete the form at the bottom of this page; 
2.   upload photos of the damaged area of the shoes and of the bottom of the left and right sides of the shoes; and
3.   Do not continue to use the defective item if it is unsafe to continue the use of it.
After GFranco Shoes receives a claim with the information requested above, GFranco Shoes will email a prepaid shipping label to customer to mail the item to GFranco Shoes if the claim is validated and it is determined that the claim is made within the warranty period stated above.  As stated above, a customer is responsible for all shipping costs to return any item back to customer if the product is determined to be out of warranty or not a manufacturer defective.
