FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Our stores are open!
To our valued customers,
As we continue to monitor the COVID-19 crisis, our greatest priority is the health and safety of our team members, customers and the wider community. We’ve been closely monitoring what’s happening locally and sticking to the guidelines provided by the New Zealand Government.
During this time, we have seen an increased demand for footwear for essential workers. We are also seeing strong demand for active footwear and apparel as more people are taking part in physical activities.
We’re pleased to announce that we have made the decision to reopen all stores by the 14th of May 2020 with our new safety protocols in place to comply with all Government directives.
We are further pleased to announce that Click & Collect is available again. However, we ask that you please refer to the below information before heading into the store to pick up your order.
Hygiene and social distancing measures
To help make them safer, we’ve introduced several measures to help us maintain an appropriate distance from each other while in our stores. We will review and adapt these in-store measures as the environment evolves.
Introduce a limit to the number of customers in-store at any given time.
Our stores will have signage displayed with the max capacity allowed in-store at any one time.
If the store has reached capacity, the number of customers will be managed using a one in, one out policy.
Maintain 2 metres apart from each other where possible
Social distancing tape will be placed around our floors and seating areas. These can be found throughout the store as reminders, as well as areas where you may be required to queue.
Use EFTPOS/Paywave/Tap n Go services available
We strongly encourage you to use your card or phone to tap and pay instead of cash, whenever possible.
Use sanitisation station upon entering the store
A team member will be at the entry door to offer hand sanitiser which all customers will be required to use before entering the store.
Regular cleaning routines throughout the entire store
We apply the highest standard of cleanliness and hygiene across our stores. We have increased the routine cleaning of frequently touched hard surfaces.
Remove and put on your own footwear
Our team will still be available to assist you with any sizing questions you may have, however they will maintain 2-metre distance to comply with social distancing! We will also have disposable try-on socks and gloves available.
Training for team members on social distancing and additional hygiene measures
All of our team members will be required to complete a training course before returning to work.
Thank you for playing your part in helping us practise social distancing! We appreciate your continued support as we work through this together.

Only received part of your order?
We really don't want you to miss out on anything that you've ordered, so sometimes we fill orders from multiple warehouses which may result in separate deliveries. This is called a split order. We do this to make sure you can get your full order from all over New Zealand!
How does it work? Say your order has been split into two parts, if one item is dispatched, you'll receive your first tracking number. When your second item is dispatched, you'll receive your second tracking number. You won't receive both tracking numbers at the same time because remember, it's being fulfilled from separate warehouses which means different dispatch times!
Don't worry! You'll receive all your corresponding tracking numbers. If you haven't received your order by the estimated delivery date, get in contact with our Customer Experience team below and we'll help track it down for you.READ FULL ARTICLE
How do I track my order?
We send regular tracking emails to keep you updated throughout your purchase journey. For Express Delivery orders, you will receive an automated notification (via email or SMS) once your order has been dispatched.
We currently use two couriers for all New Zealand orders so if your tracking number does not work for the Courier-Post portal, please use the SEKO portal.
Only received part of your order?
We ship from multiple warehouses. You'll receive separate tracking emails and shipping times will vary depending on the location it has been dispatched from.
