Will my feet sweat and smell in jelly shoes?
This is entirely dependent on climate. If you are lucky enough to live somewhere hot and humid, there is a chance your feet may feel damp when you walk from an air-conditioned environment to go outside. This is similar to sunglasses fogging when entering humid surrounds, but it quickly passes. We have not received any feedback about smelly feet!
Surely wearing PVC isn’t very comfortable?
We receive a large amount of feedback from global customers regarding the amazing comfort they feel wearing their holster jelly shoes.
A common design feature of our flat shoes is the slight arch, horseshoe sole and underheel air pocket. This is far more supportive than a completely flat design (for example, a thong). For those who prefer a non-arched sole, we offer/recommend padded insoles to ensure you’re still as comfortable as possible.
Will the PVC stretch?
Like all shoes, your holsters will last longer the more love you show them. If you undo the buckle and strap every time you put them on or take them off, they will not stretch. If you pull the ankle strap over your heel every time you put them on or take them off, then yes, you will eventually stretch them.
Why are my shoes a different shade of colour to what I see online?
The digital images we display have the most accurate colour possible. However, due to differences in computer monitors and settings, we cannot be responsible for variations in colour between your screen and the actual product.
Um, what is that smell?
That is our unique holster fragrance! Many of our customers tell us how much they love it. This particular aroma will only last a few weeks, much like the smell of new leather shoes. Rest assured, all our products are safe, REACH compliant and contain no ‘Substances of Very High Concern’ (SVHC) - please click here for more details.
Will the jewels remain vibrant?
The embellishments on your shoes will dazzle longer the more love they are given. If your shoes get wet in the rain or from regular cleaning, then ensure they are completely (and delicately) dried. This is particularly applicable for saltwater, as it can be quite corrosive.
Will the silver come off?
Avoid excessive rubbing or abrasive activity, such as scratching embellishments on car doors, rough surfaces and the like. Some skin products, such as suntan lotion, can cause erosion of the silver trays. With proper care, the silver will not come off. It might sound like we’re harping on about shoe care, but your holsters will truly fare better the more love you show them.
Uh oh, I’ve lost a jewel. Help!
holster is known for its gorgeous embellishments. However, from time to time, accessories can become loose. Replacement accessories, such as jewels, studs and buckles for current season styles may be available. Please click here to send us an email with a picture of the shoes. For styles over 12 months old we charge $5.50 for buckle or embellishment replacements to be sent out to you.
I'm outside of warranty, do you repair shoes?
We sure do. We offer free repairs and buckle/jewel replacements for styles released to the market in the previous 12 months, if available and if the shoes can be repaired. We usually ask for pictures of the shoes first to ensure we can assist you and if required, we ask that you cover the cost of return freight.
For styles over 12 months old we charge $5.50 for buckles/embellishments and $10 for shoe repairs. We also reserve the right to decline items for repair if they are deemed unrepairable.
If sending shoes to us for repair, you will need to arrange and pay for return postage.
What is that marble-like effect or lines through my metallic coloured jellies?
Don’t worry it’s not a defect, just a very normal part of the manufacturing process where the solid colour mixes with the pearlescent colour. You will find this on all of our metallic coloured shoes (Bronze, Pewter, Silver etc.).
How can I provide feedback on your product?

We're sorry, your web order will be automatically cancelled after 30 minutes of inactivity. Your ZipPay new account application is a very fast process so we recommend you confirm your ZipPay order straight away.
What size should I get?
Sometimes it can be tricky deciding on a size when you can’t try the product on first. We get this and try to provide as much sizing and fitting information as possible. On every product page we provide links to our size guides. These show the exact measurements of our shoes, along with helpful hints on selecting the correct size. Remember, if you do accidentally select the wrong size, we are happy to exchange within 30 days of your ordering.
Can I save my cart and come back to it later?
Unfortunately this isn't possible as styles can sell out quickly. If you do leave your shopping cart open or minimised and return later, when you go to finalise your order, any changes to availability will adjust on your cart then.
What's the latest I can order during sales and coupon promotions?
We are based in Queensland and don't have daylight saving, so when we specify a date and time that a sale or promotion ends, this is usually AEDT Queensland time. Your order needs to have been paid for prior to the promotion or sale ending, otherwise prices and coupon discounts will automatically revert and be removed from your cart.
