Return Policy

FREE, EASY RETURNS

We love our products. We want you to love our products, too. So buy what you like, try it on at home. If it doesn't fit, it's different than you thought it would be, simply let us know and we'll take it back. We will cover the cost of sending it back. Then simply order the correct size of what you need.

Unfortunately sale items are not eligible for free return shipping. Tthe cost of shipping will be deducted from your refund. Alternatively, you can also return online orders in-store/curbside. 

.

THERE ARE SOME STIPULATIONS THOUGH...

• After you receive a product you have 14  days to make sure you're happy or to initiate a return. After that, they're yours.

• Items that are marked down 40% or more are final sale.

• For returns on sale items, you'll need to cover the cost of shipping the  item back (the cost will be deducted from your refund).

All product needs to be in like-new condition (tags/packaging attached, footwear can't be worn outside/soles have no sign of wear). Products simply cannot be returned without being in their original packaging (aka opened socks can't be returned, shoes with damaged/missing shoeboxes can't be returned).

• Nutrition and underwear are final sale.

• Any product defects/issues will be handled on a case-by-case basis.

RETURNS/EXCHANGES FAQS

What is the return process?

To initiate a return/exchange a product, simply email orders@cultureathletics.com (make sure to include your order number in the subject line). We'll email you a return shipping label. Once we have the product back, we'll give it a quick inspection and send out the replacement/issue a credit/refund as required. Since everything is being shipped via Expedited Parcel or local courier, it's all quick and relatively painless (we promise).


If you have ANY questions at all, don't hesitate to give us a shout. Either hit us on the website's chat app, or email us at orders@cultureathletics.com.

If you are returning an item in person, we can issue the exchange/refund on the spot.

Please note that we charge a $20 restocking fee for any products that require meaningful cleaning upon return (E.G. deodorant marks, scuffs on shoe soles, pet hair, etc). If you return the product clean with tags attached, there's nothing to worry about.

How do I exchange sizes?

If you purchase an item and need a different size, simply initiate a return and re-purchase the item in the correct size. We'll refund you for the initial order once we have recieved the product back and inspected it. You'll recieve an email once we've processed the return and the refund will appear on your card a few days later.

If you purchased the item during a promotion, let us know you want to exchange the product when you initiate the return. We'll advise on how to get the same discount.

Please note: Sale items are not eligible for free returns, so the cost of shipping the item back is subtracted from the refund provided.

Can I get a refund on sale/clearance items?

We offer refunds on regular priced items.  Items marked down 39% or less are exchange/store credit only. Items marked down 40% or more are final sale.


All returned items need to be in unworn/like-new condition (tags attached, shoes not worn outside). Any returns that don’t meet this criteria will be shipped back to the customer at their expense.

Can I exchange a Final Sale item?

Final Sale items are final sale, so unfortunately not.

Also please note that items are that more than 40% off are final sale and cannot be returned/exchanged.

SHIPPING FAQs

Where do your products ship from?

Everything ships from our storefront -- located at 972 Queen St. East, Toronto, Ontario. We’re a local small business, so we don’t have a warehouse, distribution centre or anything like that -- everything’s shipped from our stockroom. The people you talk to on the phone are the same as on our chat app and are the same people packing your orders. So don’t worry -- you’re in good hands from start to finish. And I assure you, we're here to help.

How long does local pick-up take?

If it’s during store hours, we’ll pack your order within an hour (or so) of receiving it.
If it’s outside of store hours we’ll pack it when the store opens the next day. 
Either way, it’ll be super-quick and you’ll receive an email when it’s good to go!

If it's time sensitive, just give us a call at (416) 465 6660 and we can make it a priority.

How long does shipping usually take?

We try to pack/process orders within one business day (sometimes two if we're slammed). Then it's up to the courier...

GTA Delivery (Hamilton to Oshawa):
Same-day or next weekday.
Please note they only deliver Tuesday-Friday.

Canada Post:
Usually 3-5 days from pick up. Can be longer for rural locations and western + atlantic provinces.
Please note that Canada Post doesn't operdate on weekends.

Since Canada Post and our local couriers don't work on the weekends, any orders placed after Friday midday will be shipped out the following Tuesday (we're closed Mondays).

Can I track my shipment?

Anything that ships with Canada Post is expedited, so you’ll receive an automated email with the tracking info when it ships out.
Anything shipped locally won’t have a tracking number, but you will receive a notification when it goes out for delivery. You’ll then receive the parcel within the next two-to-three days.
