All items we sell are 100% authentic and are shipped in original packaging unless stated otherwise.

However, if you would like to place an order, please accept that all items are second hand and might show signs of wear. Please be aware of that we may have used some kind of shoe tree or other forms of stuffing when taking pictures, whereby the actual shape of items can differ from the pictures. Besides, we may have used flash light when taking pictures, whereby the actual color of items may differ from the pictures. Also, the light of the first picture of the picture gallery of a single item might be edited in Lightroom. All items are collectibles and initially intended to display; not to wear.

Article 6 – Transport
Items will be shipped after receiving your full payment. The risk during transport of the ordered items is on your behalf. You understand and agree that Outsole can not be held liable for any direct or indirect damages done by any of the services we provide. All items are purchases at your own risk. Any damage caused from shipping is to be taken up by you with the shipping company. We do not assume any responsibility for lost packages. ‘Sneakers’ or large amount of ‘Laces’ will be shipped insured (to €500) with a track and trace code to foreign countries. Packages within the Netherlands will be shipped ‘Standaard’. Please make sure that you enter your address and telephone number correctly, and to make sure that someone is at home when your package is scheduled for delivery. Orders may be returned to the Netherlands after two failed delivery attempts. This process may delay your delivery for a couple of weeks and we will require you to pay shipping costs for the second time. Orders including a single set or a few sets of laces may be shipped without a track and trace code, to save you on shipping costs. Outsole will provide you the track and trace code and contact information of the delivery service as needed.

By placing your order you accept the fact that you forgo time for reflection. There are no exceptions on this Article. Items usually contain signs of wear and may not be wearable. There may be tiny cracks in mid soles and these may appear during the shipping process. It is also possible that there are hidden flaws, repaired in the past. Outsole is not responsible for these flaws. Please be aware of that used items and its packaging are generally not flawless.
