Summit Safety Shoes - Returns

2350 NW St. Helens Rd

Portland, OR  97210



• If you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase, please return it for a refund or exchange within 90 days of delivery. All returns should be sent in the original box in new, unworn condition.

• Worn items (with the exception of Defective Items or styles carrying a 30 Day Comfort Guarantee) will not be accepted under any condition and will be returned to you.

• We ask that all boxes are returned using the Poly Mailer Envelope which was included with your shipment.  This will prevent the use of tape/adhesive which can damage the box and potentially leading to a $5.00 box replacement fee.

• While we do offer FREE 90-Day Exchanges (see below section regarding exchanges) we do not offer free returns. Please understand that if you request a pre-paid return label for your package, you will be subject to a $9.00 deduction from your final refund. Otherwise, you are welcome to use any shipping carrier of your choice. NOTE: If you choose to use the United States Postal Service, we ask that you insure your package to obtain tracking information on your return.

• Please contact customer service for a pre-paid shipping label that will be e-mailed to you. We just ask that you print the label for shipment back to us; we can also mail you the pre-paid label if requested.

• Please use the Poly Mailer Envelope which was included with your original order to ship your footwear.  This will prevent the need to use tape/adhesive which can damage the box and potentially lead to a $5.00 box replacement fee.

• Certain manufacturers may offer a 30 Day Comfort Guarantee on select styles. Any models covered by this warranty may be returned for a one time exchange only, in new or worn condition, within 30 days of the original delivery date.

• If you are unsure if the style you are ordering offers a 30 Day Comfort Guarantee, please email us at and we’ll be glad to let you know.

• Should you need to return footwear covered by this 30 Day Comfort Guarantee please refer to the shipping label and return instructions as outlined in the above “Free 90-Day Exchange” section.



• Your refund will be issued back to the original payment method (unless otherwise requested) the same day as it's received at our facility. The refund may not post to your account for up to 72 hours, depending on your banking institution.

• If the original box shows any damage, or is lost, you may be subject to a $5.00 box replacement fee.
