International shipping is expensive. The international shipping rates listed at checkout are the actual DHL, FedEx, UPS and United States Postal Service (USPS) rates. Customers have the ability to confirm how much shipping will be by adding product to their cart and initiating a checkout. The shipping information will display prior to having to add any credit card information.
International shipments are subject to custom fees, duties, and import taxes. For DHL, FedEx and UPS, these additional tariffs can be paid at checkout at the time you place your order. For USPS, these additional tariffs must be paid on the receiving end by the customer at delivery. These additional tariffs are imposed by the importing country's customs authorities. Each country handles foreign product different.
Domestic Shipping — Deliveries to addresses on the West Coast will typically take a shorter period of time than deliveries to addresses in other parts of the United States. Standard Ground shipping can take 2 to 3-business days for West Coast deliveries and up to 7-business days for Alaska and East Coast deliveries. The Central States land somewhere in between.
International Shipping — During checkout, customers are given DHL and the United States Postal Service (USPS) as their shipping options. DHL Express Worldwide typically takes 3 - 5 business days to deliver. USPS First Class Package International typically takes 7 - 45 business days to deliver. USPS Priority Mail International tends to deliver faster than First Class, but not always.
Note: DHL handles packages door-to-door. USPS handles packages up to customs, after which the packages are handed over to a courier within the receiving country. If you have not received your package within the expected time frame, your package is most likely still in customs awaiting your payment of customs fees, duties, or import taxes.
For both domestic and international shipments, once our Fulfillment Team fulfills your order, you will receive an automated email with your tracking number. For international, DHL tracking is much better than USPS.
Do your shoes accommodate Ankle Foot Orthosis (AFOs)?
Customers who use AFOs have had a lot of success with our shoes, but unfortunately it is not a total guarantee. Folks with larger braces or who already have wider feet may not be able to use some of our current shoes because the shoes simply are unable to create enough volume inside to accommodate.
Despite popular belief, it is important to remember that our current shoes were not built specifically for AFO use. They were built under the banner of universal design, providing an alternative way to access entry into shoes, which is easier for everyone. The design inspiration came after company co-founder Billy Price broke his neck from a three-story fall and could no longer put his shoes on independently. There was nothing on the market that satisfied his needs, so he teamed with fellow co-founder Darin Donaldson and they decided to do something about it. The goal was to combine fashion with function—dissolve the line between adaptive and non-adaptive—and create mainstream shoes for the masses, yet still preserve the functionality for those that need it, like Billy. It turns out that the functionality that Billy was looking for also appeals to users of AFOs. And given the overwhelming response from the AFO community, BILLY Footwear continues to actively work toward making their shoes more AFO friendly.
We have wider shoes in women's, men's, kid's and toddler silhouettes. The wider shoes for toddlers and kids have design components making them more AFO friendly, yet still incorporate universal design for mass market appeal. The shoes are wider, a bit deeper, and have an internal lining that is more tear resistant, per customer input.
Will you offer boots?
Yes! Boots are definitely in our plan. We plan to offer rain boots and winter boots in Toddler and Kid’s Sizing November 2021.
If you are to wash your shoes, we recommend spot washing by hand. We do not recommend putting your shoes in a washing machine.
