Q: How should I care for my AMANU sandals?

A: With normal wear over time, AMANU straps can loosen as they form to your foot. So…our door is open and we invite you to come step into our West Hollywood studio to tighten your straps or tweak anything you need. Should you not be able to come visit us, please feel free to reach out to our customer support team for more information at support@amanustudio.com Here are some additional tips to help care for your sandals For straps - We want these to last as long as possible so we recommend you keep them away from water! Store your sandals by sliding one within the other with the straps facing up (please don’t squash them down) or stuff them with recycled paper to help them keep their shape. For soles - All AMANU sandals have smooth soles that will wear down over time. If the soles become very worn down you can replace them or have rubber soles added for traction at your local shoe repair to help them last longer. The inner sole will become dirty or discolored over time from extensive wear.

Q: What is your exchange and return policy?

A: All custom sandals purchased in-store or at pop-up locations are final sale. We have a strict no refund policy for custom sandals as these were made exclusively for your feet. If you ordered online, please know your sandals have been handmade with love by our trained Makers. Should they not delight you, all unworn pre-designed shoes can be returned or exchanged within 14 days of shipment. Returns will only be accepted if the shoes have not been worn. They must be returned with the duster included. Please try sandals on a covered surface, as returns of sandals with worn or scuffed soles will not be accepted. To initiate your exchange or return: 1. Within 14 days of your order shipment, please email support@amanustudio.com 2. Please note that items must be shipped back within 5 days of your return being authorized by AMANU customer service via email.
