Returning New, Unused Product

You can return new, unworn or unused products within 30 days of the date the products were shipped to you for Cougar Shoes' online store credit or a refund of the product purchase price.

All products must be returned unused, in a fully re-saleable condition with all original packaging and tags attached. We ask that you take care of returned products and ensure that your return package is packed and sealed securely. If the goods have been used or damaged, they will be returned to you and no refund will be issued.

Returns are not pre-paid; the customer is responsible for return shipping costs.

To initiate your return, please complete a Warranty Claim submission.


For the quickest exchange of a Cougar Shoes product, we recommend returning new and unused products for store credit or a refund and placing a new order. All exchange products must be returned in re-saleable condition. The customer is responsible for return shipping costs on exchanged products. We will process your return and credit once we receive your package.

Returning Defective Product

Defective Cougar Shoes products purchased in a retail store or on another website must be returned to the original place of purchase.

Products purchased from this website with manufacturing defects can be returned for a free replacement product, Cougar Shoes' online store credit, or a full refund within six months of the purchase date.

We ask that you submit pictures of defective products to verify their condition. If the pictures do not verify the defect and an inspection is required, you are responsible for the return shipping costs of the product. We will happily refund return shipping (standard delivery) costs of products that are confirmed as defective by our Technicians.

For a thorough assessment, we ask that defective items are returned to us in a clean, dry and presentable fashion inside the original packaging.
