Returns and Exchanges

We want you to be absolutely satisfied with your new purchase. If, for any reason, you're not entirely happy with it, bring it back to our Uptown Victoria store for a hassle-free refund or exchange. It's that simple!

Return Policy

We gladly accept unworn, unwashed, and unused merchandise in new, sellable condition for a full refund or exchange within 7 days from the date of purchase. To be eligible, all items must be in their original packaging/boxes, have all attached tags, and be accompanied by the original receipt. Please note that we cannot accept returns for items returned after 7 days, or items returned within 7 days that are not in good condition, or missing any original packaging. Any damaged items when we receive them are not eligible for a refund.

We do not accept returns on tights, socks, toe and foot protectors, undergarments including dance belts, earrings, makeup + wellness products, hair products and accessories, special order items or sale items. These items are considered final sales. 

Due to Russian Pointe discontinuing the Rubin Radiance, all sales of this pointe shoe are FINAL SALE.

Promotional items

From time to time, we have promotional sales on items. Please note that discounts are only valid during the sale period, and exchanges made after the sale ends will not receive the promotional discounts. All Sale items are considered FINAL SALE. 

 

Exchanges

We accept exchanges or store credit up to 30 days of purchase. An exchange is only possible if the item(s) being exchanged is unworn, unwashed, and unused merchandise in new, sellable condition with all tags on and is delivered in original packaging. Please note: pointe shoes can not be returned if ribbons, elastics have been sewn on, or the pointe shoe has been bent, the fabric is dirty, and overall the shoe has been tried on extensively. Pointe shoes need to be in original packaging. 

We do not accept online exchanges, as items may sell out while the requested exchange is returned and processed. If you're unsatisfied with the item(s) and wish to return it, we ask that you return the original item (s), and visit our website to purchase the correct item in a new order.
