Orders & Shipping
1. How long should I expect to wait before my order ships?
All in-stock orders (both standard and expedited) are processed within 1-2 business days. You should receive the product in 3-7 working days after the order is confirmed.
Shipping duration might be extended during national holiday or special sales promotion (e.g. Cyber Monday, Black Friday, China 11/11 sales day). Please visit our website for update, or check with our customer service to get the latest status via online chat or email.
2. How do I change or cancel a placed order?
You can cancel your order by clicking “Cancel Order” on your My Orders page, before placing a new one. (Note that you can only do this if you have a weAre account.) If you don’t see the link, chances are that our warehouse is already packing up and processing your shipment, which means that it’s too late to cancel or change the order. We’ll try to accommodate you as best we can, otherwise.
3. Can I track my order?
For all shipped packages, we’ll send you the tracking number in an email (you can also find the info on your My Orders page). You can sign in to your account to check the package delivery status.
4. Do you ship internationally?
weAre currently supports shipping within China, excluding Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan. Customers residing in remote areas will need to pay for additional shipping cost. Please contact our customer service to find out the exact amount.
5. Can you help me understand what a pre-order or backorder is? When will my order ship?
Sometimes we offer items for sale before they technically arrive in our warehouse. Pre-ordering these items means we’ll ship them out once they’re ready.
You’ll know if the item you’re purchasing is a pre-order item because it will say so on the product page, and at checkout. Once your order is placed, you can double-check when the item is estimated to restock (via the product page), and we’ll make sure you receive a shipping confirmation email once the item leaves our warehouse.
6. What’s my tracking number and where can I find it?
We’ll be sure to send you your package’s tracking number in a shipping confirmation email you’ll receive once your order leaves the warehouse. You’ll be able to find a link to the tracking information on the My Orders page.
7. What currency do you accept?
Prices for all of our items are listed in Chinese Yen, no matter where in the world you’re accessing the site from.
Retail & Sizing
1. How do I know my size?
Please refer to our size chart page or use your usual shoe size to find your ideal fit.
We’ll provide you with individualized advice, based on your needs!
2. You’re out of my size. Now what?
Not to worry, we restock often! If we are planning to restock in your size, you’ll have the option of adding your email to a waitlist from the product page. If the item is out of stock and you don’t see a “Waitlist” option, we probably won’t be immediately restocking that item.
