Many of our products come with a limited or lifetime manufacturer's warranty. Please note that this is a "manufacturers'" warranty and typically applies to faulty workmanship or materials and not to damage caused by inappropriate or careless use of the product.
If you have a product you feel qualifies for repair or replacement under this warranty you can contact the manufacturer directly to make arrangements or contact us by phone or email to discuss your options.
We do not exchange or offer refunds for product which was damaged in any way during use and can only facilitate between you and the manufacturer during the warranty process.

Please note that warranties on hiking boots such as Meindl and Hanwag cover only the intended purpose for which the boot was made, hiking, backpacking, hunting etc. If the boots are used for work purposes especially fire fighting, tree planting or where the boot is subjected to oil or solvents the manufacturer's warranty does not apply and any repairs are the responsibility of the customer.

Footwear is subject to a lot of wear and tear, after all, you walk in your boots all day long, they get banged and scraped and twisted and it is important you buy the correct type of boot for your activity. If you hunt or hike in the rocks at high elevations and are often off-trail then you need a boot for this purpose and while a lighter hiking boot may feel more comfortable, it will not take this type of abuse. For fire fighting we recommend a double or triple stitched full leather boot which is not constructed with a sole that is glued on and a rubber rand as this is where the boot will fail. A traditionally made stitched boot will be heavier and take longer to break in and it is still not specifically made for fighting forest fires, but it will stand up a lot better to heat and heavy use.
