Frequently asked questions

Hello and welcome to our help pages. These pages provide assistance and answers to our most frequently asked questions.
Whilst we have tried to give as much information as possible we appreciate that you are as individual as our shoes and one size doesn't fit all. If you can't find the answer to your question feel free to email us at irregularchoicemexico@gmail.com with your query and we will be happy to assist.

How do I sign up for the Irregular Choice Newsletter?

You can sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of this page - you can also change your subscription preferences in your account.

Do you have a size guide?

Naturally we want you to buy the right size, so please check out the sizing conversion information here
Irregular Choice is graded using Euro sizes only, so you will find only euro sizes are stamped on the shoe. The shoe box packaging, however, sometimes has dual sizes displayed, i.e Euro / USA sizes.

Where can I find the heel height measurements?

Heel heights given, are an approximate measurement taken from the outside of the heel to the floor, on a size 37, and are a guide only. Larger or smaller sized shoes may have a higher heel due to scaling of the style. All measurements are in centimeters (cm) and they can be found on the product page.

Heel Tips

High heels are a feature of fashion footwear, this means that the heel tips are correspondingly small. The heel tips used by our factories are made to the recommended hardness to ensure good wear quality and yet not be too hard to cause slip problems. Given the nature and size of the heel tips, they will wear down depending on use. Also it is not uncommon that they may come off during wear. If a heel tip is missing or loose/worn, replace these ASAP to prevent damage to the shoe. We recommend that heel tips are also replaced before they wear down completely to ensure that the heels are not damaged. An increasing number of our styles are supplied as standard with spare heel tips where possible, and these can be refitted by your trusted local cobbler.

Colours / Designs

We have done our best to display as accurately as possible the colours of the products on the irregularchoice.com web site. However, because the colours you see will depend on your monitor, we cannot guarantee that your monitor's display of any colour will be accurate. Please be aware that sole and box designs may differ from that shown on the product images depending on season or edition - make sure your read the product description for full details! Occasionally we may need to change materials, construction or finishes on our products and they may appear different to the description, measurement or image given online. We try to keep this to a minimum, however it may happen from time to time.

Are your styles vegetarian or vegan?

When designing and manufacturing our shoes, we select materials and trims from thousands of sources. Whilst we have accurate information on the materials used, it's not always possible to get exact information about any dyes, threads, glues, trims, glitter, sequins, paints, cements, resins or glues which may be used. Due to this we are not able to label our products as truly vegan or vegetarian. Some of our styles do not contain animal leathers, and some do. This depends on design choices, cost, finish, colour and durability; and we choose the best materials we can find to make our designs as amazing as possible. If a style contains leather in the upper, sock, lining, sole or trim, the blue product information box will state this on the product page, and the material info sticker on the style itself will also show this. It is company policy, and has been for many years, to use faux fur rather than real fur. However we do use some materials like pony skin leather which have a fuzzy finish.

Tell me about the flashing lights!

Some of our styles feature flashing lights! Woohoo! Most styles that feature light-up LED components have concealed, single use, non-replaceable batteries, are designed to keep flashing for an approximate minimum of 20,000 steps, and cannot be turned off. Selected styles feature an on/off switch - if so this is stated on the product description. The lights are actioned by gentle impact (ie - walking at a moderate stride on a hard surface for shoes, tapping the item on a hard surface if it's a bag).

Items which have rechargeable batteries, will have an accessible micro USB port to re-charge them. Each charge should take at most 2 hours. We don't recommend wearing any light-up styles in particularly wet weather, or submerging in water or puddles, for example.

VAT and Tax charges

All prices for goods and services include VAT where applicable. The VAT charged will be either VAT in the country of delivery (rates will vary by country but our prices remain unchanged) or UK VAT. For goods and services delivered outside the European Union VAT is not charged although the price shown on the website remains unchanged. If you purchase from us for delivery outside of the EU, please be aware that the destination country may charge additional tax and customs charges for importing the goods - this is beyond our control. Applied VAT charges for your order will be shown on your order invoice.

How do I pay for my order?

We currently accept payment by the following cards: Visa Credit Card, MasterCard, Maestro, Visa Debit via SagePay; and additionally Visa Electron, American Express, EuroCard, and Discover via Paypal. Some credit and debit cards are subject to validation and authorisation by both the card issuer and us. This is to help maintain security and prevent fraud. Made to order items are payable by PayPal invoice only.

Can I pay with a bank transfer?

We accept payments via bank transfer. Please email us on irregularchoicemexico@gmail.com for further details.

Is it safe to order online?
