The Urban Gear ships from the Gold Coast, QLD to anywhere in Australia and New Zealand.

The Urban Gear is an online-only store. We do not have the facilities or resources at our dispatch centre to accommodate pick-ups or drop-offs. In other words, we don’t have someone at our warehouse every day. We do dispatch quickly and get your parcel to you as soon as possible.

We can, but at checkout, the additional $5AUD shipping option must be selected. Free Shipping and Returns does not apply to orders going to one of these locations. For more information please see our Shipping and Returns.

The short answer is no and we wish we could operate with comfort guarantees, but everyone is shaped differently, feels pressure differently, and tolerates comfort at different levels.

The Urban Gear team does like to help with our expertise where we can and this is the number one question we receive from you. Every style of footwear within 6 months of wearing will change its look, feel, and softness. The arch will start to collapse from constant pressure and on sandals, in particular, the footbed can lengthen in time. 

So when you purchase a new pair of the same favourite footwear, don’t expect them to look, feel, or be as soft as your well-loved pair. You will have to break them in, and always remember that every year we age, gain or lose weight, our feet do change with us. Don’t be surprised if one day you have to go up a half size or need to change the style of footwear altogether, especially if pesky foot genetics come into play(i.e. bunions).

Shoes will mould and shape to your foot. Different materials will change faster than others, for instance, a mesh upper is soft and pliable to touch almost immediately, but leather will slowly soften over time. Canvas materials are tough at first, but give with the foot usually in a few wears. Always try your shoes on at home on a clean surface, before wearing outside if you are unsure.

As custom orthotic wearers ourselves, we added to each shoe description if there are removable innersoles; this located under the tech & care tab. This special feature may leave you enough room to add your orthotic, but if you need more information, please feel free to contact us for more details about a particular shoe.

 On each product under Tech & Care we provide the recommended care for each shoe.

Our size charts for each brand is directly sourced from the brand itself. We update those standard charts every year, because as brands add new styles, they sometimes have to adjust their standardized size chart to reflect any changes. The size option, size recommendation,and team thoughts, provided on the product’s description are provided to give you a more accurate idea of the actual sizing of that particular style of footwear.To help with this we have a printable Find your Fit Guide..

We carry a range of brands, but each of them have their own definition of vegan footwear. If the shoe says it is made from synthetic materials and the accents are not made of leather, then the shoe might be classed as vegan by that brand. If you are concerned about the glue or rubber used, please contact us directly and we’ll investigate for that specific style of shoe.


Yes, All of the brands we source have strong environmentally friendly ideas and mottos within their companies. We feel it is important to promote and wear brands that understand sustainability and are working to improve the world we live in.
