Answers to FAQs about Converse Shoes

Q: Are Converse shoes sizes larger than regular shoes?

A: Yes, the Converse Chuck Taylor shoes tend to run about a half size larger than most other brands. In some cases, Converse shoes even run a whole size larger, It just depends on your feet. We recommend that you try a pair on in a local store if at all possible before buying your first pair online. This will help ensure that you find the proper size for your feet.


Q: Why do the sizes show men's and women's?

A: Most Converse shoes are Unisex so a men's 5 is the same as a women's 7.  If you have sizing questions you can always call or e-mail us.   


Q: How can I clean my Converse shoes?

A: For your canvas and textile shoes you can wash them by hand or in a washing maching, but we do not reccoment drying them as it can dry the glue and cause seperation.  If you have a custom shoe, leather shoe, or any material other than canvas/textile we do not recommend washing them. 


Q: Can I return my shoes if I don't like them, or if they don't fit?

A:  Yes you can return any unworn shoes for a refund anytime.  If you ordered a custom shoe, you can return them, but you will only receive a partial refund for the shoes.  Please contact us before returning with specific questions about custom returns.
