Choose from our selection of handcrafted designs, pick your size, and checkout using one of our secure payment options.

How do I check my order status?

Order status can be checked through your account profile. We also send notification emails to the email address entered while placing your order to keep you informed every step of the way.

Why did I not get a confirmation email for my order?

There are a couple reasons why you may not have received a confirmation email. Some of the most common reasons are:

1. The order didn't go through
2. The email address was entered incorrectly during checkout
3. The confirmation email was sent to your spam or junk folder

If you are sure that the order was processed successfully with the correct email address and you have already checked your spam or junk folder in your email account, please contact our Customer Experience team with your name and address so they can locate your order and resend your confirmation email.

How can I edit the items in my order?

If you wish to edit the items in your order, please contact our Customer Experience team with your order number and the changes you wish to make and we will do our best to accommodate your request before your order has been shipped.


If your order has already shipped, we can no longer make changes to your order. Please see our Returns & Exchange section above for details on how to exchange the item for another one.

How can I edit the shipping address for my order?

If your order has already shipped, please reach out to the courier company with your tracking information to request that the package is redirected to a different shipping address. This request must be made by you through the courier.


If your order has not been shipped yet, please reach out to our Customer Experience team with your order number and updated shipping address and we will do our best to accommodate your request before the order is shipped.

What payment methods do you accept?

We accept all major credit cards, Sezzle so you can wear now and pay later, and most cryptocurrencies through Coinbase.

Why am I charged for sales tax?

Sales tax is required depending on the state of your shipping address.

Do you offer cash on delivery?

Unfortunately, we do not offer Cash on Delivery service. Please see payment methods above for other payment options.

Why did my payment fail?

Common reasons for payment failure include:


1. Card information was entered incorrectly

2. Auto-filled card information was entered with an incorrect security code

3. Card is expired

4. Insufficient funds

5. Billing address does not match the card

6. Payment details were flagged as fraudulent by our automated system

Why is my bank showing that I was charged twice?

Some financial institutions will prepare a payment and list it as pending in your account when you go to make a purchase. If your payment fails for one of the reasons listed above and you attempt to retry the payment, you may sometimes see two charges in your account as pending. Don't worry! All declined payments will be released back into your account once your bank's system realizes that the payment didn't go through.

Can I pay over time?

Yes! MLO is partnered with Sezzle to offer you a pay over time option. 4 payments over 6 months with no interest, ever, so you can wear now and pay later.

How do I checkout with Sezzle?

To checkout using Sezzle, simply select Sezzle as your payment option on the checkout page. It will take you to their secure payment system where you can complete your purchase.

How do I checkout with cryptocurrency?

How long will my order take to arrive after it has been shipped?

Most of our domestic orders will arrive within 7-10 days. International orders can add an additional 5-10 days.

How is my order being packaged and shipped?

All of our shoes are shipped in eco-friendly, reusable drawstring bags that are good for the environment and your wallet. Standard shipping costs $2.99 but is free for orders over $100


Most of our domestic orders will be shipped from our warehouse in California via UPS. International orders are shipped via DHL or your local courier service.

How can I track my order?

You can track your order through our online portal. You may also find additional information by entering your tracking number directly on to the courier service's website.

Why is there no tracking update?

Some orders are shipped internationally so you may not see updates via local couriers until the package is cleared by local customs and granted into your country.


If your order is still under the estimated delivery time frame, we kindly ask that you wait patiently. Once this process has been completed, you will begin to see tracking updates.

Why was my order divided into two or more packages?

If you purchase more than one item, we may sometimes ship them separately due to a couple reasons:

1. The items in your order are stored in separate warehouses
2. If one of the items in your order is a pre-order

Why didn't I get an email about my order being shipped?

There are a couple of reasons why you may not have received a shipping confirmation email:


1. Your order has not been shipped yet

2. You may have entered your email address incorrectly when placing your order

3. The shipping confirmation email may have gone to your spam or junk folder


If it's been over 4 business days and you are sure that you entered the correct email address when placing your order and that the email is not in your spam or junk folder, please visit your account profile to check the status of your order.

Why does the courier service say they haven't received the package yet?

Some orders are shipped internationally depending on the availability of the item you ordered at our local warehouse. Because of this, you may not begin to see updates via US carriers until the package is cleared by customs and granted into the country. Once this process has been completed you will begin to see updates on your tracking information.

Why hasn't my packaged arrived yet?

If you are passed your estimated delivery time, we kindly ask that you remain patient and rest assured that your order is still on its way. We only partner with the best carrier services in the world and they are doing their best to deliver your package as soon as they can.

Why was my package returned to sender?

Typically this is due to an incomplete/incorrect shipping address or the courier does not have access to the delivery location. If your tracking info shows 'Returned to Sender', please contact our Customer Experience team with your shipping address to reschedule your shipment.

Why does my package show delivered, but I haven't received it?

Please first verify that the shipping address entered for your order is correct. Then check your mailbox if you don't see your package at your front door. If you live in an apartment complex, ask the front office if they have received a package for you. Lastly, ask your neighbors if they picked it up for you.


For more details, contact the courier company directly and provide them with your tracking number. If you have tried all of the other options without any luck, please contact our Customer Experience team for additional help.

Where is my order being shipped from?

Most domestic orders are shipped from our local warehouse in California. For international orders and select items that are not carried at our local warehouse, they will be shipped from one of our international warehouses.

The best way to be notified when an item is back in stock is through our mobile app. Select the style and size you wish to be notified about and tap on the button labeled "Notify me when back in stock" to receive a push notification directly to your phone as soon as the product becomes available for purchase.

How are your products made?

Our products are hand made and designed which makes each shoe unique in its own way. This is why some of our products may have a slightly different design pattern.

Where are your products made?

Our products are ethically made overseas and shipped to localized warehouses.

Why are your products so affordable compared to other luxury brands?

We cut costs that many traditional brands don't. However, every cost we cut is so that we can provide you, our customer, the best possible experience at the most affordable price.


As a team, we've had to adapt to current times. This includes learning how to operate remotely during quarantine which means no overhead costs for office buildings! It's inspired us to be innovative with our systems and processes in order to operate more efficiently.


All of our shoes are designed in-house by either our CEO, dedicated shoe designers, or other members of our team. Even those who aren't in our creative department! We give everyone in our company the opportunity to design shoes!


Apart from design, our shoes are shipped in eco-friendly, reusable draw-string gym bags that are not only good for the environment, but good for your wallet as well! Shoe boxes are expensive and cost a lot for shipping. This means you're paying 20-30% less just by us cutting out the box!


The bottom line is that we cut out the costs that aren't necessary. What's left are high-quality, high-fashion designs that are eco-friendly, accessible for everyone, and make a difference in this world.

Are the shoes waterproof?

Most of our shoes are water resistant. However, they are not water proof so we don't recommend wearing them to swim in the ocean with.

How do I clean my shoes?

We are currently developing a cleaning kit specifically made for our shoes. For now, we recommend using a wet rag with soap and water to remove any dirt stains.
