Fleet Feet FAQs


I have a question regarding order status and/or cancellation. Who do I contact?

Please submit a request here with any order-related questions.

How long will it take for my order to arrive?

- With Standard Ground Shipping, order times vary depending on destination. Most orders arrive within 4 business days of the order date, often sooner. If you chose Expedited Shipping, your order is guaranteed to arrive within 2-3 business days of the ship date. Sometimes, the ship date is not the same as the order date, depending on weekends, holidays, and the time of day in which your order was placed. Once your order has shipped, you will receive a shipping confirmation email with real-time tracking information. NOTE that Saturday and Sunday are not active shipping days, and time-in-transit estimates are for business days.

I didn't receive an order confirmation email. What happened?

If you reached the "Order Successful" page on fleetfeet.com but have not received an order confirmation email, one of the following may have occurred:

  • Payment authorization: your order may be being reviewed for security purposes. In this case, an order confirmation will not be sent until it has been released by our fraud protection team. This typically takes less than 8 hours, but occasionally can take a day or more.
  • Incorrect email entered: if the email address used to place the order was entered incorrectly, the order confirmation can't be delivered. Please reach out to us here if you believe this is the case and we will get your account information updated, as well as confirm your order (barring any further issues).
  • Waiting time: typically order confirmations are sent immediately, but if it has been less than 5 minutes since order placement, a bit more time may be needed before you receive it. If it has been more than 30 minutes, one of the above scenarios is likely. For any additional questions on order confirmations, please submit a request here.

I'm trying to place an order and getting an error message stating that there has been an authorization failure. What went wrong?

If you receive this error message, please double check the following:

  • Credit card number
  • Expiration date and CVV
  • Ensure the billing address you entered is the one on record with your bank / credit card provider

For any further issues or questions with credit card processing, please reach out to us here.

I tried placing an order and it did not go through; however, there are multiple pre-authorizations on my credit card. How should I proceed?

- If you are experiencing this issue, please reach out to us here and we will investigate further.

How can I cancel my order?

- You can cancel an order (or specific items) that haven’t yet processed or shipped by sending a message to support@fleetfeet.com with the subject line "Cancel my order". We will be in touch as soon as possible to confirm the cancellation, or let you know if the order has already processed and/or shipped.

My order was cancelled and I don't know why. What happened?

- As part of our commitment to ensuring every customer gets the right fit, the right size — the overall right product— we encourage wear-testing in our stores as part of the process. Occasionally, this fitting process produces some minor wear-and-tear, leaving the item not quite “brand new” anymore. In this case, we cancel the order as we can no longer send an item of the highest quality to you. If an item you ordered online is not available, we will notify you as soon as possible to inform you of the cancellation. If you would like to substitute the item, please place a new order for the replacement item.

Do you do backorders? My chosen item(s) aren't in-stock anymore.

- Unfortunately, we cannot take backorders. If you're interested in purchasing an item that is currently not available, we recommend checking back regularly to see if the item has come back in-stock.

What forms of payment do you accept?

- We currently only accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express credit cards for online orders. Fleet Feet Gift Cards are also redeemable on fleetfeet.com! To find out what forms of payment a local store accepts, please contact the location directly.

How can I check the status of my order?

- Simply click on 'My Account' in the upper right corner of our homepage and sign in to your account to view your Order History. You can also track your shipped order directly from your Shipping Confirmation email or by entering the supplied FedEx tracking number at www.fedex.com.

Where does my order ship from?

- Glad you asked! Unlike traditional warehouses, at fleetfeet.com your order is fulfilled by one of our local Fleet Feet stores throughout the country. Each store is locally owned and operated, meaning 69% of your purchase goes back into the local community. When you shop at Fleet Feet online, you shop local.

Do you ship internationally?

- Unfortunately we are unable to ship any orders placed on fleetfeet.com to destinations outside of the United States.

Is Express Shipping available?

- Yes! Express Shipping is available for a flat rate of $25 and guarantees delivery within 2-3 business days of order date. NOTE that Saturday and Sunday are not active shipping days, and time-in-transit windows are for business days.

How long does it take for me to get a refund?

- Once your return shipment is in transit, you will be refunded within one business day. While the process typically takes less than 2-3 business days, it can take up to 10 business days to post to your account. This timeframe varies by bank / credit card company. If you returned your order to a Fleet Feet store, you will be refunded within one business day of the return date.

Can I exchange items I purchased online?

- Unfortunately Fleet Feet does not currently offer exchanges on merchandise purchased from our online store.

I placed an order online with a gift card, and now I need to return item(s) on my order. How do I get my gift card back?

Can I use the discounts and rewards earned through my local store online?

What do the different shoe widths mean? How can I see what width a shoe is online?

- Shoe widths vary between men's and women's shoes — see the chart below for each. Note, not all widths are available in every style of shoe.

- All widths that a given shoe style is available in are shown in thumbnail images underneath the shoe name. Beneath each thumbnail image, the width identifier is shown (corresponding to the above chart). For example, below is an example of a women’s shoe style available in multiple colors in Standard Width (B) which is unmarked. Below it are the styles available in Wide Width (D), Narrow Width (2A), and Extra Wide Width (2E) which are labeled in the thumbnail images. If all styles shown for a given shoe are unmarked, then that style is unfortunately not available in anything other than the Standard Width.
