They were expensive shoes and the store was awesome about taking them back to make me happy. They absolutely destroyed my heels on the first wear out of the house. The store sets up their own return policy. I take a toothbrush, make a batch of super cleaner with some Oxiclean, an scrub the hell out of them. What if I don't have a printer or access to UPS?

Today I was wearing thicker socks and could not get it on. It's winter I normally wear thicker socks. Is this a justifiable reason to return? I would not make a return on that basis after wearing the shoes--unless the purchase was from a store with a policy that promises "satisfaction guaranteed, no questions asked" LL Bean has such a guarantee, for instance--and I did once return a jacket that just didn't fit right after wearing it once or twice.
Perhaps check the Nordstrom's website to see if they feature such a policy. The stores that do always make a very big deal about it. Sorry the boots haven't worked out for you. Good luck with them. I have returned used shoes many times, with no apology. Nordstrom will take them back without even looking at them.
Nordstrom has a great return policy. I think they'll take them, no questions asked, resole them and put them up for sale at the Rack. I will be honest and say that your reasoning for wanting to return does not seem right to me.
When we buy shoes, we need to take into account what socks we want to wear with them. When they seemed hard to get on in the first place, I would have not worn them outside until I worked out that issue. But, like others have said, Nordies will take them back, no questions asked I will just hope that they don't resell them to me as new shoes. The ones I tried on in the store were fine. I had to order a pair from another store because the suede was mismatched.
And while Nordstrom's may have an outstanding return policy, surely we are paying for that in their prices. Well, not me personally because I can't afford to shop there, but you get the point. I'm not sure I would have worn them in the first place knowing this though. Well, I think Nordstrom will take them back. Can you wear them with thin socks? I have some Wigwam ski socks that are all synthetic, and after over 30 years of skiing learned that synthetic socks are warmer than wool ones! If you love the boots, it might be worth a try.
So I tried them on again with thinner socks, and with some effort I could get it on. I called the downtown Seattle store and told them my story. The salesperson said I could bring them in and that they would be able to stretch them for me.
You know, if I had worn the shoes outside not just on the carpet, I would not return them JMO but to do so is taking advantage of Nordie's great customer service. Perhaps you can find a thinner sock or if all fails, donate them to a charity that will be able to sell them and use the money for something worthwhile Getting them stretched by the store is a good compromise Hope they work well for you!
Megan has a good point.. I hope you can get yours stretched to work for you! They are gorgeous boots. Funny enough when I wore them out shopping for like 8 hours it wasn't the same. They were expensive shoes and the store was awesome about taking them back to make me happy. I'm going against the grain here. The store sets up their own return policy. If they didn't want to take back worn items, they could easily make that part of their policy.
If an item fits within their return policy with no trickery, I don't think it's wrong to return the item. I don't see it as taking advantage of the company because the company is the one who laid out the rules.
There are obviously differing opinions on this, but I wouldn't return shoes that have been worn outside my house or obviously worn at all creases in the leather, etc. One of the reasons I love Nordstrom is their generous return policy, but just like a generous friend, I'm not willing to take advantage of it. People taking advantage of relaxed return guidelines are one reason why so many stores have tightened up their policies.
Just because the company has the policy does not mean that I would feel right morally about taking advantage of it this way. If a shoe or an item of clothing has some kind of manufacturing defect, fine but otherwise I think I need to take some personal responsibility when it comes to my purchases. I would be a serial returner if I tried to return some of the shoes that ended up being misses, especially now that feet have become fussy.
What that has taught me is that I should be even pickier about my selection process which means reading tons of reviews before I even order, trying them on with the right orthotic,socks, etc. I have the opportunity to try them on at the store and at home before I decide whether or not I should keep them. That's already pretty darn generous compared to the rest of the world. If I wore them once or twice, and they caused lots of discomfort or had a major defect that wasn't obvious before wearing them, and I knew that the store like Nordstrom would take them back no matter what, I definitely would.
If the store has a policy and practice of accepting returns of worn items, I don't think it is taking advantage, particularly if I know I have been careful with the shoes. I mean heck, Nordstrom accepted a dress that I had taken the tags off of and worn twice, and it totally shredded along the seam on the second wear. It was so obviously caused by the fabric that I didn't feel bad at all for taking it back, and no one gave me a hard time. If I wore the shoes and then decided that I just didn't like them as much as I originally did, then I'd feel guilty about returning them and wouldn't do so.
No, not unless they were defective. It's sort of like ordering a bottle of wine at a restaurant. You can order it, sniff the cork, and try the first drink.
At that point, you might realize that it's not what you expected maybe too sweet, for example but unless it's defective corked you have to just accept that you gambled and lost. That is too much money to spend on something that is uncomfortable and won't get many wears.
I just looked up the numbers on Nordstrom for a response on a different thread about returning a worn item, and thought I would share here. The company and its employees will all be fine if your return the boots and they resell them for a bit less. I would not feel right about returning anything that had been worn unless there was an obvious defect or quality problem. To do otherwise, for me personally, would be taking advantage of the retailer and I would feel dishonest.
I don't think it's dishonest unless you lie about the condition of the shoes. If the SA is aware, how is it dishonest?
I don't want to be contentious, but that "personal responsibility" argument is rather judgmental--even if you're saying you're not judging--because, well, you are.
Nov 05, · i used to work in a small running store. we took the shoes back for store credit if they didin't show wear, they weren't dirty, had a clear defection, or you could make a good argument. Athleta sells popular workout/yoga clothing and shoes for women and has a fantastic return policy. Unlike parent companies Old Navy, Gap, and Banana Republic, you .
