Reducing our (carbon) footprint
We realise our shipments create CO2 as they travel to their destination, which is not great for the environment.
That is why we are happy to let you know that every one of our shipments' carbon impact is offset by a donation to the Acapa - Bajo Mira y Frontera deforestation project in Ecuador.
Director is the slip-on version of Chief, one of our top men's dress casual shoe for the last decade or so. It features a supremely comfortable and supportive cork footbed, which can be removed and replaced down the road, ensuring long term comfort. It also has a polyurethane sole with a metal shank for stability, and the hand-sewn Strobel construction makes it strong and extremely flexible.
The handcrafted version of Director is really unique. The leather is hand dyed in a studio separate from Naot's main factory, which means every pair is unique and won't necessarily look exactly like the pictures shown.
Available at Glebe Trotters.
*Sizing recommendation: this style fits a bit on the large/wide side of things, so we generally recommend a half size down if using your usual dress/casual shoe size, or 1 full size down if using your athletic/running shoe size.
We have researched numerous shoe size guides online and in turn have developed what we think is one of the most accurate guides you will find anywhere. Please keep in mind this is before considering how each individual shoe fits, so use this as a starting point.
Unless otherwise indicated when choosing your size, we use the US sizing system for our footwear.
Local Pick Up
All orders are available as "Local Pick Up" at our brick and mortar location (860 Bank Street, Ottawa, Ontario) if desired. If choosing this option, you will be notified within 24 hours as to when your purchase should be ready for pickup.
We have added an Ottawa area "Glebe Trotters Delivery" option at checkout. One of our staff will personally drive your purchase out to you, which will usually reduce the wait for your purchase by a couple of days. In certain cases, the delivery fee may be partially refunded (after purchase) depending on your proximity to the store.
Shipping Within Canada
Most orders will be processed and shipped within 24 hours of the placement of the order. You will be notified when your order is being shipped. If we are unable to ship your order within the 24 hours we will contact you accordingly.
All orders over $140 CAD ship free to anywhere in Ontario.
We have separate shipping rates for our footwear (and bags, belts, socks, etc.) and for our shoe care & accessories. Unfortunately if you have an order with something from both of these groups, our website will automatically combine these shipping rates. However, we will ship all items together and refund any unnecessary shipping costs to you (after purchase).
Canada Post provides our shipping services. Delivery times and costs vary depending upon location and the number of items being shipped. All available rates will be shown when you reach the checkout.
Outside of Canada
We ship all over the world (with a few exceptions)! Rates will be made available during the checkout process. We are not responsible for any other duties or additional state taxes you may incur.
Our policy lasts 30 days. If 30 days have gone by since your purchase unfortunately we cannot offer you a refund or exchange*.
*Please note that any gift purchases made during the holiday shopping season are not subject to the 30 day return or exchange policy. As long as the item needing to be returned/exchanged is in brand new condition, we will accept these indefinitely into the new year.
To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging.
To complete your return, we require a receipt or proof of purchase.
Please do not send your purchase back to the manufacturer. Items purchased on GlebeTrotters.com can be returned or exchanged, with proof of purchase, via mail/courier or in person at our physical location (860 Bank St.).
Late or missing refunds (if applicable)
If you were approved for a refund and have not received it yet, first contact your credit card company, as it may take some time before your refund is officially posted to your statement.
If you have double checked and verified that the credit card company has no record of the refund please contact us at email@example.com.
