We are happy to offer you a credit or refund on most items. Please see timeframes below for returning an item to ELK -


  • Returns within 30 days of purchase
  • Receive a Credit or Refund


  • Returns within 14 days of purchase
  • Receive a Credit

      Please view the "REFERENCE" section below for the definitions of "#FullPrice", and "^Discounted Items".

      To be eligible for a credit (issued as a gift voucher) or refund, the item must meet the following criteria:

      • Received within the above applicable timeframes.
      • Proof of purchase is provided via receipt or order number.
      • Returned in its original, unused condition with ELK tags attached. 
      • Shoes returned in their original box .
      • Purchased from or an ELK retail store. Please note, we cannot accept items purchased from an ELK stockist - you need to return to the original place of purchase.


      Credit Voucher
      Your credit will be emailed to you as a gift voucher to the value of your item/s.

      You will be refunded in the same way you chose to pay.

      • If your original purchase was split over a gift voucher and another payment method, we will refund onto the gift voucher first, and any balance onto other payment method. Please note, this is a function of Shopify, the software we use for our website and our retail stores, so unfortunately, we are unable to modify this process. We thank you for your understanding.

      If you purchased online, you will receive an email confirmation when your refund has been completed.

      AfterPay Refunds
      For online purchases, your refund will be returned automatically.

      For a purchase made at an ELK store, our retail team can assist you with a refund at any ELK store. The following steps are required to issue your refund:

      • Open the AfterPay App on your phone and select the order you are returning in store.
      • Click the details of the order, select "Returning an Order” and follow the prompts.

      Please allow up to 10 days for processing your AfterPay refund. Please note, refunds from AfterPay will often appear as a reduction on your balance owing rather than a lump sum refund back to your original account. To learn more about Afterpay refunds please see further information by clicking the following link to view on the Afterpay website.

        Unfortunately, we currently cannot facilitate exchanges. Instead, we recommend returning the incorrect item for a credit (issued as a gift voucher to use on your next ELK purchase), or refund and then placing a new order for the correct item.

        • Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that your new item will still be in stock and available for purchase by the time your parcel is received and processed by the ELK Returns Department, or you visit one of our ELK stores.
        • To ensure you don’t miss out, we highly recommend checking our website to confirm the new item you are wanting is available and purchasing the new item before returning your unwanted item.

        Please contact our Customer Service team at or phone +613 9478 1800 during business hours (AEST) for advice on available stock, styling or finding your best fit.
