UK Delivery

Free delivery when you spend over £50. For UK orders under £50, delivery will cost £8.00

We use Royal Mail for UK deliveries. Please be aware that we use tracked delivery services, therefore we require a signature on delivery. If you want a parcel left unattended at your property, you can select this option with Royal Mail however you must be aware that once the item is scanned by the delivery driver as delivered, we will not be liable for any loss and cannot accept any responsibility if the parcel is missing or damaged.

International Delivery

We use DHL for international deliveries. We are unable to offer VAT-free shopping at this time. Additional taxes or import fees are payable by the customer, British Shoe Company is not responsible for these. 

Please note, if a delivery is not possible due to incorrect address information or refused by an international recipient, the customer is responsible for any return shipping accrued. This will be deducted from any refund due.

International shipping rates are as follows:

UK orders via Royal Mail are normally delivered next working day is the product is in stock and the order is placed before 1pm. BSC shoes are always in stock however other brands may not be. Although we carry a large volume of stock, we may need to order specific sizes or colours in from the manufacturer to fufill your order.

Please allow up to 10 working days for all orders. If your order is urgent, please call us and check availability before ordering. 

International orders are normally delivered 3-6 days from date of dispatch. 

You will receive a confirmation email immediately after purchase, and then a dispatch email with tracking details once the products are sent.

Please repackage the products securely, attach the label and drop off at any Royal Mail collection point. Alternatively you can arrange for a home collection free of charge through the returns portals if this is more convenient for you.

It is very important that all items are returned to us in a saleable condition, so, when trying them on, please do not crease the uppers or scratch the finish on leather soles. They must be unworn and still in the original packaging with any labels, swing-tags, etc. still attached.  We reserve the right to withhold part/all the payment if not returned in a saleable condition as described above.

If returning a faulty product we suggest entering into correspondence with us prior to returning any product. If a genuine fault is found we will reimburse the cost of your postage. We suggest using insured postage as we are not liable for loss or damage in transit.

International orders can be returned at the customers expense.
