Can I exchange or refund my shoes?


You are most welcome to exchange your Blu Betty’s! All exchanges “carry” a handling fee of R160 (for main areas) for up to 2 pairs of shoes. This is a contribution to the logistics involved in arranging collection of your original shoe/s and dispatch of your exchange shoe/s back to you. Should you need to exchange 3 or more pairs of shoes then the exchange handling fee will be R250. For those clients in outlying areas, we make use of PUDO. You can pop over to your most convenient PUDO locker and send your shoes back to Blu Betty (the respective fees will apply as per the sending branches). We will send you an invoice for the dispatch of your exchange shoes to you – PUDO is R130 for up to 2 pairs and R200 for 3 pairs or more.

There is a lead time of approximately 2-3 weeks for the manufacture of exchange shoes should such not be in stock. You will be invoiced separately for an exchange.

No exchanges will be processed for shoes that show any measure of wear whatsoever. Please note that the items being exchanged MUST be returned to Blu Betty in their original packaging. Any items that are returned to Blu Betty and are damaged due to inadequate protective packaging will NOT be liable for the processing of the exchange nor the cost of the exchange and/or refund.

How do I clean my shoes?

Regarding the Baobab and Diesel leathers please note the below:


Do not spot clean your shoes. Rather wash the leather completely with an extremely diluted mix of baby washing powder/water & a sponge (only very slightly damp). Do not leave them in the sun to dry as they will go hard.  We recommend that you use a reputable leather care product to care for your Blu Betty’s.

We do offer an exceptionally good leather care gel, TeknoShoeCare™ Leather Care for use as a protective layer on new shoes (and for further maintenance) and a fantastic maintenance leather cream product, TeknoShoeCare™ Leather Cream which provides longevity and nourishment to all your Blu Bettys!

Both these products have been tested by the Blu Betty team & by many of our clients and we can attest to their veracity and ability to keep your shoes looking wonderful. Follow the link hereunder for more information.


We offer TeknoShoeCare™ Stain Preventor, Odour Preventor and Easy Clean in the form of 2 step, 3 step kits or in travel size 50ml bottles. These fantastic products are available to protect and clean your Blu Bettys. Your leather shoes are best maintained with the TeknoShoeCare™ Leather Care and Leather Cream after cleaning.

Do you make half sizes?

We do not offer half sizes in our shoes. When considering your sizing selection please note that our shoes being genuine leather do have a measure of “give”. After a small amount of wear, you will feel your Blu Betty’s stretching the firmness giving way to comfort.

Should you be between sizes it is worth noting that many of our clients elect to go for the smaller size due to the “give” of the leather.

Are Blu Betty’s shoes a bigger or smaller cut?

Our shoes are made to standard SA sizing, which is comparative to typical UK sizing.

Our shoes do for the most part run true to size and the majority of our clients have no sizing issues if they select their normal size! Our leathers do allow for some “give” and as such we do not advocate going up a size. If you are almost always a certain size we suggest that you stay with that size and in the event that you are “between sizes” we that you generally advise that you take the smaller of the two.

If a shoe is out of stock, can you make it up for me and how long does it take to get my shoes?

We can make up your order with pleasure (unless otherwise specified when ordering)! There is a lead time of approximately 3/4 weeks for your shoes to be manufactured. For those styles that allow “back ordering”, you will be advised when a shoe is not in stock when placing your order and given the opportunity to place a backorder – simply follow the ordering process.

What sizes do you offer?

We offer our sizing from SA3 – SA9 in most styles. Although there are the occasional instances where we offer a style from a SA4-SA10.
