Delivery & Returns

1. Delivery

Olivier Gerardi is happy to offer free delivery on all your orders.

The orders are produced as we receive them, and are shipped as soon as the products are completed. When an order is placed, it is usually ready for shipping after 1 to 2 weeks and to this production time must be added the transport time to your address which takes:

  • - 3 to 4 working days for metropolitan France
  • - 4 to 5 working days for the rest of Europe
  • - 5 to 9 working days for the rest of the world

Please note that the previous delivery times are for information only. They can vary or be impacted by the customs of your country.

When your order will have left our warehouse, you will receive a shipment notification email as well as a tracking number to follow your shipment online.

On request, we can personalize orders bought as gifts. You can inform us of your special instructions by email or during checkout in the comment field dedicated to this purpose.

We would like you to be aware of the fact that your orders are subject to possible custom taxes and import fees that might be invoiced to you when the goods enter your country. Unfortunately, we do not have any way to anticipate nor influence those possible extra costs. We therefore have to decline any responsibility regarding such costs. We strongly recommend you to contact the relevant customs authorities of your country if you have more questions on this matter.

3. Fitting Instructions

It is imperative to try shoes on a carpet or a rug. If the sole was to be scratched or damaged or if the shoes give the impression of having been worn for longer than a reasonable fitting time (5 to 10 minutes), the product will be considered non returnable or non exchangeable. It is imperative to take the greatest care of the shoes and to use the shoehorn when trying them on in order to avoid crushing the counter of the shoes.

Do not bend your feet excessively as a folding mark might appear on the shoes, which would give the impression that the shoes have been worn for longer than a reasonable fitting time.

Please take extra care of buckskin or nubuck shoes, as they are particularly sensitive and delicate in case of ill-treatment.

After the fitting, please put the shoetrees back into the shoes immediately, so that they can remain in a perfect shape.

Please note that minor shade or patina differences can possibly happen during the finishing of the shoes and cannot be considered a manufacturing defect.
