All orders are shipped out Monday through Friday via USPS or FedEx, excluding bank holidays and all major holidays.
We do also ship to APO/FPO addresses; orders shipped to PO Boxes are sent via USPS only. Unfortunately, FedEx does not permit shipping to PO Boxes.
Please make sure to include any apartment, building, or suite number with your address if applicable. Any missing information from your address will effect delivery times and in some cases may cause your package to be returned to our office. In these cases, we will attempt to contact you for the correct address and additional shipping payment. If no response after 72 hours, your order will be refunded, minus your original shipping charge.

All countries are different with customs and VAT, which is your government’s way of taxing you for goods purchased internationally. We recommend inquiring with your local post office for details on fees and additional time your package may take. All customs and VAT fees are the customer's responsibility.
International orders are first shipped to a facility in Bell, California, and from there distributed onto their final destination. This allows us to provide excellent tracking information including an update once the package has reached customs.
ORDER AND SHIPMENTS NOTIFICATIONS
Order confirmations emails are sent shortly after your order is placed. Shipping confirmation emails will be sent once a tracking number is available. These have been known to sneak into the spam folder of email inboxes in the past.
Never fear! If you have received a message from Socksmith.com with an order number on the website itself, your order has been placed.
We are also always more than happy to triple verify this order or shipping confirmation via our contact form; please include any information you may have, such as first and last name, date, or order number to assist us in locating your order efficiently.
