Returned Products must be unworn in their original packaging, with the packaging intact.
Shoes should be tried on a carpeted surface as the soles are delicate.

The costs of returning the Product are the responsibility of the Customer.
The Customer must check the Product at the time of its delivery and if the Product delivered is non-compliant (Product error, defective, damaged or incomplete Product), make written observations at the latest within three (3) days following this delivery, to the carrier and/or JUSTINE CLENQUET, by sending a photograph of the Product.
In all cases, the provisions set out in article 10.1 on legal warranties will apply. Thus, the non-compliant Product delivered can only be the subject of a replacement or a repair, initially. Nevertheless, if the new Product received is not satisfactory, the Customer may exercise, where applicable, the right of withdrawal in accordance with the provisions of Article 9.1. above.
All Products for sale on the Site benefit from the legal guarantee of conformity (articles L. 217-1 and following of the French Consumer Code) and the guarantee against hidden defects (articles 1641 and following of the Civil Code), allowing the Client to return the defective or non-compliant Products delivered.
The Customer has a period of two years from the delivery of the Product to act in application of the legal guarantee of conformity.
In this case, the Customer may choose between repairing or replacing the Product, subject to the cost conditions provided for in Article L. 217-12 of the French Consumer Code, or, failing that, reducing the price or the termination of the contract under the conditions of articles L. 217-14 and following of the French Consumer Code.
It is specified that under Article L. 217-13 of the French Consumer Code, any Product repaired under the legal guarantee of conformity will benefit from an extension of the said guarantee for a period of six months. Furthermore, when the Customer chooses the repair, but this will not be implemented by JUSTINE CLENQUET, the Customer may request the replacement of the goods, which will be accompanied, in this case, by a renewal of the legal guarantee of conformity.
This provision applies either when the repair requested cannot be implemented within a period of one month following the Customer's complaint, or before this period, when the non-repair results from a decision taken by JUSTINE CLENQUET.
It is recalled that under Article L. 217-7 of the French Consumer Code, any lack of conformity that appears within a period of twenty-four months from the delivery of the goods, including goods with digital elements, is unless proven otherwise, presumed to exist at the time of delivery unless this presumption is incompatible with the nature of the good or the defect invoked.
The Customer may decide to implement the guarantee against hidden defects of the Product sold within the meaning of article 1641 of the French Civil Code.
In this case, the Customer may choose between rescinding the sale or reducing the sale price, in accordance with article 1644 of the French Civil Code.
In all cases, the online provision of the credit card number and the final validation of the order will be considered as proof of the entirety of the said order in accordance with article 1366 of the French Civil Code and all the sums incurred by the selection of the Products listed on the purchase order will be due.
This validation is deemed as signature and express acceptance of all the operations carried out on the Site.
However, in the event of fraudulent use of the credit card, the Customer is invited, as soon as this use is observed, to contact JUSTINE CLENQUET customer service.
The computerized registers, kept in the computer systems of JUSTINE CLENQUET and its partners under reasonable security conditions, will be considered as proof of communications, orders, and payments made between the Customer and JUSTINE CLENQUET.
