Worst shoes ever bought
Went to athletes foot because I have flat feet but do a lot of exercise. I expected them to find a shoe which would be right for me because they advertise themselves as “the best” . Shoes I bought are too big and uncomfortable and cost me $260. Very very disappointed. Will never return to this store and would not recommend them to anyone.
Fitted with wrong size shoes
Fitted with wrong size shoes for work. Unfortunately kept the shoes for a month before starting to wear and now the are putting pressure on my toes and my feet hurt. Checked with store but they can’t offer a change of size because I am out of the date range. Terrible experience as I used to love these shoes for work. Wish I had not followed the guide of specialist fitters and gone with my own instinct. Not a happy customer
I had a problem with the comfort and fit of my shoes and because of covid it was well outside the normal exchange of 30 days. I rang and spoke with Kat who offered to see if she could organise for the Epping store to exchange. No issue at all. Thanks Athlete Foot. I feel well looked after and a valued customer. Great customercare and service.
The very best customer service
Today I experienced the very best customer service at The Athlete’s Foot shop at St Ives, Sydney. I had purchased a pair of running shoes from them a few weeks back but on wearing them a couple of times found them to be a size too big. I returned to the shop and without any fuss, the shoes were replaced with a pair a size smaller. The new shoes feel so good and I am so happy and appreciate and thank them so much.

Return Policy problem
My wife and I have recently had a very frustrating time with The Athletes Foot. We purchased some sneakers online, apparently we ordered the 'long toe' version of a size that has always fitted so it was then too big. OK, no problem, we'll return them. Took them to the store in Eastland and were told we couldn't return them through the store (even though the website says that you can). OK, no problem, we'll send them back. We've now been told that they can't accept our return because we taped the box closed. Seriously! We now have a problem.... ...We've been told that it clearly states in their return policy that we can't tape a box closed. It actually says 'SHOES in original condition in the original box' nothing about the 'condition' of the box. We taped it closed so that the shoes remained in 'original condition'. We won't be paying the extra it costs to use this store anymore because the service doesn't justify it anymore.
I placed an order on January 12 & received it on January 15. I was unable to fit the shoes and immediately contacted customer service to request an exchange. I was told they are unable to exchange them or take them back at a store. Therefore, I was required to return the shoes and to pay for another pair. They stated that once received, I would the first pair, I would receive a refund. The catch was that they deduct $8.00 from the amount I paid for restocking. I had already paid $7.44 for shipping. Well I returned the shoes the same day via UPS...and received a confirmation indicating they were received them. To date, they are indicating that they did not receive the shoes back despite me providing the tracking number which indicated they were signed for. I have called customer service numerous times and either on hold for an extended period of time or they still claim they dont see that they were received. I have currently been placed on hold for more than 10 minutes and upon callback, I have been holding for 11 minutes. Please do not take yourself through this hassle. This has been very frustrating and something I will NEVER do again!
