If you are unsure about buying and returning boots through Amazon, don’t be.
Amazon has a very friendly return policy that allows you to return or exchange the work boots you don’t like or want FOR FREE.
You are probably used to trying on pair after pair of boots to find the right size, and you are not alone. Getting the right fit can be difficult and visiting a shoe store can make that part of the process easy.
The problem with the shoe store is that the selection is often small, they may not have your size, and there are no reviews or ratings to help you find the BEST pair of work boots.
Amazon makes returns easy
Buying work boots on Amazon solves all these problems.
Amazon has a massive selection of styles and sizes, competitive prices, everything is backed by ratings and reviews, and Bootratings.com already researched and narrowed the best choices down for you.
The only “issue” that is left is trying the boots on. Fortunately, you don’t have to worry about that either!
Amazon’s return policy
You can read the Amazon return policy yourself, but to summarize:
- You have 30 days from the date of delivery to return the boots you don’t want
- Returns/exchanges for the wrong size is perfectly acceptable
- Return shipping is paid by Amazon and is free for you
So don’t think that Amazon is just the place for doing research before you waste a lot of time trying to figure out which shoe store has what you want.
If you don’t like the boots, log on to your Amazon account, pull up your list of orders, and click “Return Items” next to the order to start the process of returning the pairs that didn’t work out. Amazon will refund your original payment method for the full purchase price AND provide free prepaid return shipping labels.

Here is an actual chat I had with Amazon support on April 4th, 2018:
Me: Hello! I am just curious about shoe shopping. If I was to order a few pairs of shoes to then pick the one pair that I liked or fit the best, is it easy/free to return all of the others?
