*There is no additional shipping cost for an exchanged item. Exchanges can be made for the same item or a different color item within the same product group for equal or lower price. Lower priced items will not receive a refund of the difference. If a promo code was used on the original item purchased, it will be honored on the exchanged item. We cannot process exchanges for other styles. We recommend submitting a return for a refund so you can place a new order for the item you want. Final sale items are not eligible for return or exchange. LifeStride is not responsible for returns until they are received in our warehouse. Customers are responsible for the safe return of merchandise if mailing themselves. Shoes must be returned in their original shoe box. Original shipping charges are not refundable. As of January 4, 2023, Happy Returns is implementing a return limit of 9 items per return. Any returns with 10 or more items will need to be mailed in or split into separate returns. As of June 14th, 2023, returns that have not been dropped off or shipped within 30 days will automatically expire.
