Welcome to shopshoes. Listed on this page are the terms and conditions which apply to your interactions with us, including interactions through mobile applications, as well as your purchase of the products listed on the Website (‘Products’), so please read them carefully before proceeding (and print them out if necessary for future reference) as by using the Website or placing an order you are agreeing to be bound by them. When we say ‘terms and conditions’, that includes all documents referred to on this page and any others referred to in them. Where these terms and conditions (or any part of them) have been translated into languages other than English, the English language version takes priority.
These terms and conditions may be modified from time to time but, should this happen, they will be posted on the Website. These changes won’t apply retrospectively unless you agree to it.
If you don’t wish to be bound by these terms and conditions then please don’t use the Website or buy any Products from it.

Contracts for the sale of Products formed through the Website, or as a result of your visits to the Website, are governed by these terms and conditions, including our Conditions of Supply.
All such contracts are binding on you and us and on our respective successors and assigns. You may not transfer, assign, charge or otherwise dispose of any such contract, or any of your rights or obligations under it, without our prior written consent. We may transfer, assign, charge, sub-contract or otherwise dispose of any contract, or any of our rights or obligations arising under it, at any time during the term of the contract.
From time to time, we may conduct competitions on the Website. Those competitions and your entry into them will be governed by separate competition rules (the main ones are here).
None of the Products, services, or content on the Website are offered to anyone in any country or jurisdiction where providing them may be prohibited by law. By using the Website, or by creating an account with us, you represent to us that you are legally entitled to use the Website and its Products, services, and content. We rely on this representation in order to provide you with access to, and use of, the Website and its content.
We have done our best to ensure that the Website complies with the laws of South Africa. However, we make no representations that the Products, services, and content on the Website are appropriate or available for use outside South Africa.
We may give notice to you by posting it on the Website or at any address (email or postal) you provide to us. Notice will be deemed received and properly served immediately when posted on the Website, 24 hours after an e-mail is sent to your email address, or three days after the date of posting of any letter.
When using the Website, you accept that communication with us will be mainly electronic. We will generally contact you by e-mail or provide you with information by posting notices on the Website. By using the Website you agree to this means of communication and you acknowledge that all contracts, notices, information and other communications that we provide to you electronically comply with any legal requirement that such communications be in writing. This condition does not affect your legal rights.
We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under these terms and conditions, including any contract between you and us concluded under these terms and conditions, such as, but not limited to, a contract for the sale of Products to you, that is caused by events outside our reasonable control (a ‘Force Majeure Event’). A Force Majeure Event may include for example (but without limitation) the following: strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action; civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war; fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic or other natural disaster; impossibility of the use of railways, shipping, aircraft, motor transport or other means of public or private transport; impossibility of the use of public or private telecommunications networks; the acts, decrees, legislation, regulations or restrictions of any government.
Our performance under any contract is deemed to be suspended for the period that the Force Majeure Event continues, and we will have an extension of time for performance for the duration of that period. We will use our reasonable endeavours to bring the Force Majeure Event to a close or to find a solution by which our obligations under any contract may be performed despite the Force Majeure Event.
These terms and conditions including the documents referred to in them (in each case, as amended from time to time) constitute the entire agreement between us and you in relation to use of the Website and/or supply any of the services or any of the Products to you and supersedes all previous agreements in respect of the same.
If we fail, at any time during the term of any contract between you and us concluded under these terms and conditions, such as, but not limited to, a contract for the sale of Products to you, to insist upon strict performance of any of your obligations under that contract or any of these terms and conditions, or if we fail to exercise any of the rights or remedies to which we are entitled under the contract or these terms and conditions, this shall not constitute a waiver of such rights or remedies and shall not relieve you from compliance with such obligations.
No waiver by us of any of these terms and conditions shall be effective unless it is expressly stated to be a waiver and is communicated to you in writing in accordance with the Notices section of these terms and conditions. A waiver by us of any default shall not constitute a waiver of any other default.
If any of these terms and conditions or any provisions of a contract concluded under these terms and conditions are determined by any competent authority to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable to any extent, such term, condition or provision will to that extent be severed from the remaining terms, conditions and provisions which will continue to be valid to the fullest extent allowed by law.
The terms and conditions, as well as any contract in respect of a transaction carried out through the Website are governed by the laws of South Africa
