Shop with Confidence at NOC. No Restocking Fees, No Hassles.

Your satisfaction is our number one goal. NOC will exchange unused items in resellable condition within 30 days of purchase. We will replace the product or refund your money, whichever you prefer. Hopefully we can find something you like better! No restocking fees, no hassle. A receipt is required for refunds or exchanges, so please include proof of your purchase in your return.


Footwear will be accepted for exchange or return only if unworn.

You have purchased a pair of fine quality footwear. To be sure you are happy with them, we recommend that you first wear them on a carpeted surface so you will be confident of a comfortable fit.  NOC honors all vendor warranties and defective footwear will be accepted for repair or exchange if accompanied by receipt. However, if shoes are used and cannot be resold, we cannot honor a refund or exchange unless defective or vendor warranties apply. Most of our shoes are designed for camping/trail running/hiking. If such shoes are used for construction work, farming, concrete work, etc they will not be repaired or replaced.


We will advise you if we are temporarily out of an item you have ordered. When we back-order a stock item we ship it at our expense.
