Returns Overview

We want you to be happy with your purchase from Runners Den so we will gladly provide a full refund of the original purchase price of any unused item that meets the criteria for a return.

Please note that all sale items are final sale and as such, are not eligible for return.  We will exchange sizes where possible but please note that the customer is responsible for shipping charges.

Note that we are not permitted to put some items on sale as per Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) agreements with relevant suppliers.    When we advertise store-wide sales*, said items are always excluded which is why we add the * saying some exclusions apply.  While we would love to mark down those items on occasion for you, we need to stay true to our word with both customers and suppliers.

Sale price protection - please note that if an item is marked down within 14 days of your purchase you may request a store credit for the difference.  Must be claimed while the sale price is still applicable.

You have a full 14 days to return any items purchased online that don't meet your needs. Simply return qualifying items to us within 14 days of receiving your order for a refund.

When we receive the items back you will be refunded the original purchase price of your item(s). The refund will be applied to the method of payment you used when you ordered. Original shipping costs will not be refunded.

If your return affects the original order total in such a way that it no longer qualifies for free shipping, or meets the requirements of any coupons or special offers you used, you will be charged accordingly after your refund is processed.


If you would prefer to return your item in person, or to try on another size for an exchange you may do so at our store located at 860 King St. W Hamilton. Please bring your original invoice that was sent with your order and the credit card you used online for all in-store returns.


  • You may return an item purchased in-store within 14 days of purchase, provided that item meets the Conditions for Returns below.
  • Returns must be accompanied by the original receipt.
  • The original method of payment must be present to receive a refund, otherwise a store credit will be issued.

All products being returned must be in new condition and include any retail packaging, tags, manuals, or other included items to qualify for a refund or exchange. Product packaging, tags, manuals must be intact and in sellable-as-new condition. Below are some specific restrictions and guidelines for a few of the larger product groups.


You are welcome to try out shoes on clean indoor surfaces or a treadmill to get a feel for them in use.

To qualify for return, shoes must be accompanied by the original box and any packaging included.

Warranties range considerably from product to product. If you have a problem with something you purchased from us, and think it might be covered by a warranty or if you're not satisfied with it, please get in touch with us. We can explain specific warranties to you and help you return your product should a defect be present. If you're not satisfied with something, we'll be happy to discuss your situation and try and find an appropriate solution to the problem you're having. If your item is covered by a warranty we will authorize your return and provide instructions for returning it. Please note that if you return a product that does not meet the conditions for a normal return before discussing it with us, your item will be refused and returned to you at your cost.


If you would like to return a product that meets the returns criteria detailed above, please send an email to with your original order number, item being returned, and reason for return.  We can provide a Pre-Paid return label for you to make the process easier. As of now we can offer a flat rate for return of $12 that can be taken off the original purchase  price when the refund is made. ( working on free returns, just not there yet, sorry)

  1. Print Return Shipping label you receive using the highest quality ink setting possible
  2. Securely package all returns so there is no damage possible to products and product packaging
  3. Do not apply tape or labels directly to shoe boxes or product packaging or a damage fee may be assessed.
