We want you to be happy with your purchase from BlackToeRunning.com so we will gladly provide a full refund of the original purchase price of any unused item that meets the criteria for a return.

Please note that all sale items are final sale and as such, are not eligible for return. We will exchange sizes where possible but please note that the customer is responsible for shipping charges.

Note that we are not permitted to put some items on sale as per Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) agreements with relevant suppliers. When we advertise store-wide sales*, said items are always excluded which is why we add the * saying some exclusions apply. While we would love to mark down those items on occasion for you, we need to stay true to our word with both customers and suppliers.

We may ask for more information, photos or videos in order to assess the defect and if the defect is confirmed, we will authorize your return and provide instructions for returning the item.

Damage caused by regular wear and tear is not considered to be a manufacturing defect. Manufacturing issues arising after 60 days from the date of receiving will be handled as per the manufacturer's warranty and may have to be raised directly with the manufacturer.

BlackToe Running offers subscriptions of various types through an app called Recharge Payments. The subscriptions include Race Clubs, Race Teams, Private Coaching & Nutrition Products, and these offerings may change from time to time. All technical aspects of subscriptions including the subscription checkout process, payment processing and the customer portal are managed by Recharge Payments.

Most subscriptions require a three month / three order commitment from the customer and cancellation is allowed only after three months / three orders have been completed. However, for certain special cases, cancellation may be possible earlier at the discretion of BlackToe Running. Please contact us directly to discuss your options.

Product subscriptions at BlackToe Running are essentially regular orders whose periodic placement has been automated using the Recharge Payments app. And so, all our general policies for returns/exchanges/defects/food safety/shipping still apply to all our subscription orders.

It is possible to order multiple subscription products at the same time. Subscription products with different delivery intervals / order frequencies will process as one order the first time but may get divided into separate orders on renewal. Only those subscription products that have the same order date, delivery interval / order frequency and shipping address get renewed as one order. Therefore, the shipping charges on subscription renewals may be different from what was paid for the initial order. Only those orders and renewals that are $75 and above receive Free Shipping. To receive Free Shipping on every renewal, we recommend ordering subscription products with the same delivery interval / order frequency and a combined total price of $75 or above.

We offer great value on our coaching / training memberships and already discounted prices on our product subscriptions. Therefore, no further discount codes or offers can be applied to our memberships / subscriptions.

For any concerns or help with subscriptions, please contact us at (416) 792-7223 or info@blacktoerunning.com.
