This information is supplied in English only. If you do not agree to our Terms, please do not use our website.

Information About Us:
www.fastfeet.co.uk is operated by Fast Feet Sports Ltd, 5 High St, Bishop's Stortford, Hertfordshire, CM23 2LS. We are registered in England under Company Number: 01859796. Our VAT number is 393 1379 33.
Some items appearing on the website may occasionally no longer be available (as we are both an online and high street retail store and as such stock sold in the high street store is not always deducted immediately from the online store), and we also reserve the right to withdraw any item from sale at any time, even after an order has been placed. We will contact you as soon as possible in the event of your ordering an unavailable item and offer you either an alternative, or a refund of all monies in the method in which they were originally paid.
Ordering and Contract:
Please see our How To Order page for information on how to place an order. If you have any questions about how to order, an item's specifications or suitability, or any of our policies, please contact us before making a purchase.
When placing an order you agree that all information provided by you is accurate and complete. Once payment has been made in full and cleared, you will receive an email from us acknowledging the receipt of your order and detailing product(s) ordered, cost and delivery details. Please check all details on this acknowledgement are correct and contact us as soon as possible if any details are incorrect.
Please note that your order does not form a binding contract between us, but rather an offer to purchase goods from us. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and no contract for the sale of any product will exist between you (the customer) and us (fastfeet.co.uk) until we accept your order by despatching the product to you.
Your order is accepted when we despatch the goods you have ordered, and not before, at which point a legally binding contract shall exist between us. We will send you a Despatch Confirmation email to let you know when the goods have been despatched. We reserve the right not to accept any order, and to cancel an order at any time prior to despatch. If your order has not been accepted, we will contact you to advise the reason why. By placing an order through our website, you are confirming that you are legally capable of entering into a legally binding contract.
We accept payment via PayPal, MasterCard, Maestro, Visa, Electron, and American Express via our Secure Server, or via Cheque/Postal Order.
Cheque/Postal Orders should be received within 7 days of ordering.
It may be necessary to adjust prices in the event of an increase in VAT rates, or as a result of a manufacturer price increase. Customers are entitled to a full refund if this is not acceptable.
All card transactions (including via PayPal) are subject to validation checks and authorisation. If for any reason the issuer of your payment card refuses to or does not authorise payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.
In the case of payment by cheque, we will not dispatch your order until 10 working days from the date of receipt of your order, and after the cheque has cleared.
All prices are in UK Pounds Sterling and are inclusive of VAT where applicable, but exclude the delivery charge, which is determined and added to your order at checkout.
Although we try to ensure all prices on our website are correct and up to date at all times, it may occasionally happen that prices are incorrect or have changed without notice. In the event that a price is incorrect for whatever reason, we will correct the price and ask you to confirm whether you still wish to purchase the goods at the correct price, or cancel your order. If we are unable to contact you, we will at our discretion treat the order as cancelled. We will not be obliged to supply goods at the incorrect price, and reserve the right to withdraw the goods from sale and cancel your order at any point prior to despatch.
Shipping & Delivery:
We aim to despatch goods within 2-5 working days of your order being accepted, and payment being received and authorised. Goods should be delivered within 3-5 working days from despatch for Mainland UK. Please see our Shipping & Delivery Information page for information regarding estimated delivery times for UK Off-Mainland and International parcels. If you have ordered multiple items, they may on occasion arrive separately. If for some reason there is a delay in despatching items, we will inform you. If you require a product in a hurry, please all us on 01279 504740, and we will do our very best to accommodate your requirements.
We are currently unable to deliver to PO Boxes.
If your delivery address is outside of the UK, you may be required to pay import duties and taxes when your order reaches your country. These and any additional charges for customs clearance are entirely your responsibility. We have no control over these charges and cannot predict their amount. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order if you have any queries.
Please also note that you must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the products are destined. We will not be liable for any breach of any such laws by you.
While we make every effort to have your goods delivered in the specified time, we cannot guarantee delivery in that timeframe, and we are not responsible, and have no liability to you, for any delays which occur whilst your goods are in transit with courier. We cannot also accept liability for out of pocket expenses or other costs incurred due to failed or delayed delivery.
For UK deliveries, couriers will normally require a signature to ensure safe receipt of your goods. If you are not available to collect and sign on the courier’s first visit they may leave it with a neighbour, or in a safe place (at your own risk) if requested upon ordering. A card will be posted through your door to let you know this has been done. If there is no safe place, a card will be left with the courier’s contact number to arrange re-delivery.
The couriers will attempt re-delivery up to a maximum of three (3) times and if delivery is not successful after the third attempt they will return the goods to us, and we will refund the price of the goods excluding postage costs. Please note that if you have requested that we leave your goods in an unsecure location, we cannot accept any liability for any resulting loss.
Please see our Shipping & Delivery Information page for more information.
In the case of a missing parcel, we will attempt to locate the parcel. If we are unable to locate it, we will ask you to fill out a missing parcels form in order that a claim can be made, and replacements will be sent. Please see our Shipping & Delivery Information page for more details.
All items are thoroughly checked prior to despatch, but in the event that an item is damaged/faulty please contact us within 48 hours at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 01279 504740 to inform us of the fault. Please see our Returns Policy for further details.
If you are not happy with your purchase, goods may be returned for an exchange or refund within 14 days, provided they are returned in the same new and unused condition in which they were received, and in the original packaging. Refunds will be applied within 14 days of goods being received back by us using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase (except in the case of Postal Orders, where we will refund you by Cheque).
Please note: Any costs associated with postage and packaging (including original shipping and packaging cost and the cost of returning the item to us) will not be reimbursed.
Please see our Returns Policy for further information.
Cancellation of Contract:
Under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 you have the right to cancel your order within a period of fourteen (14) days. The period of 14 days begins on the day after the day you, or the person that you ask us to deliver the goods to, receive your goods.
If you wish to cancel your contract, we require notification either in writing to: Fast Feet Sports Ltd, 5 High St, Bishop's Stortford, Hertfordshire CM23 2LS, or by email to: email@example.com (please ensure you retain durable proof of your cancellation). Please note: we provide a Cancellation Form which can be downloaded from our website, which you may fill in and send back to us.
Orders may be cancelled at any time before they are despatched by calling us on 01279 504740 to let us know you wish to cancel your order. If the goods have already been despatched, then those items must be returned to us at your own expense and risk within fourteen (14) days. Please see our Returns Policy for details on how to return items.
You must take reasonable care of the goods and may inspect and assess them, but not use them. We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any goods supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you.
You must return goods to us, at your cost, to the specified address below, in their original packaging wherever possible, within 14 days of informing us of your wish to cancel. If you return goods to us, we will not be responsible for any loss or damage to them during transit and we recommend that you use a recorded or secure delivery method and retain a proof of postage. If goods are lost or damaged in transit, we may charge you, or not refund to you, amounts that are attributable to the loss or damage.
A refund will be issued within 14 days after our receipt of the item(s), assuming they reach us in the same condition in which they were sent and within the allotted time, using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase (except in the case of Postal Orders, where we will refund you by Cheque). Any paid delivery charge will be included in your refund once we have received all (not part) of your order to the specified address below. If you only return part of your order we cannot refund the delivery. Please note the delivery charge refund will be to the value of basic, standard delivery only.
For full details of your rights under the Regulations, please contact your Citizens Advice Bureau or a Solicitor.

If you have any questions about an item, including its sizing, suitability or specifications, please contact us via e-mail or telephone before purchasing. Sizing can vary between different manufacturers – please see our Manufacturer’s Size Guides.
All sizes and measurements are approximate and intended as a guide, although we do make every effort to ensure they are as accurate as possible. All sizes are displayed in UK sizes. Whilst we take all reasonable care to ensure that all product details, specifications, descriptions and prices appearing on the website are correct at the time they are published on the site; we reserve the right to refuse orders where product information has been published incorrectly, including prices and promotions. We reserve the right to withdraw products from sale at our discretion, at any time without notice.
We make every effort to ensure that images match the relevant item as closely as possible, but the constraints of digital reproduction on different web browsers can cause colour depiction to deviate from the actual item, and so as a result of this the colours of an item may vary a little from what you see on your screen.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account and any activities that occur under your account. Fast Feet Sports Ltd shall not be liable to any person for any loss or damage which may arise as a result of any failure by you to protect your password or account.
You are also responsible for ensuring that all information provided to us is correct and complete, and for informing us of any changes to the information you have provided.
We sometimes issue promotional codes to customers that give benefits such as discounts and free delivery. These codes may only be used by the person to whom they are issued, they are not transferable and they must only be used in accordance with their own specific Terms and Conditions. By using a promotional code to claim a benefit you will be confirming that you are entitled to use the code. If we discover this not to be the case, we reserve the right to cancel the order.
Please refer to the specific Terms and Conditions relating to each promotion, as well as the Terms and Conditions listed on this page. We reserve the right at any time, at our sole discretion, and without notice to end, suspend, amend or add additional terms and conditions to any promotion. You may not use more than one promotion per order and promotions may not be used in conjunction with one another unless otherwise specified by us.
