questions?

Got questions? We got answers. Click the + beside each question to see the answer.

What sort of stores do Minnows perform best in?

We sell best in resort stores, higher end department stores, dedicated children’s boutiques that specialise in small, quality brands with strong design credentials, in children’s shoe stores, in swim boutiques and in quality seaside gift retailers. In Australia, we do well in seaside pharmacies, though pharmacies play a slightly different role in North America than in Oz.

What about price?

We offer 50% margins and wholesale pricing on our beautifully made, beautifully designed, premium quality waterproof shoes from $14.99.

Can I request a sample?

Send requests for samples to hello@minnowdesigns.co and, if your retail store is a fit for Minnow Designs, we’ll send you a sample shoe along with some sales material. Your regional sales rep can also submit a request for a sample on your behalf.

How long does shipping take?

We ship via DHL or Auspost express with duties paid so that nothing gets held up in customs. You can expect your order within 5 working days of order placement.

How much does shipping cost?

We offer a flat shipping rate of $40 on all orders. This gets your order to your door within 5 working days, duties paid. If we have any issues, we’ll contact you BEFORE we send your order to avoid any hassle.

How do I place an order?

Contact your local rep (details in the ‘meet the team’ section above), visit our Faire store>> or contact us directly at hello@minnowdesigns.co and we’ll send you an order form.

How do I pay you?

Payments can be made via bank transfer to our US bank account. Payment details will be provided with your invoice.

What about returns?

If you’ve ordered via Faire, they’ll handle the return logistics if you are unhappy with your purchase. It’s a bit tricker if you order via us or one of our reps. All sales are considered final and no returns can be made on orders that arrive in saleable condition. Refunds will be given only for faulty stock. If you’re unsure about our quality prior to placing your order, request a sample at hello@minnowdesigns.co or via your sales rep.

Are Minnows machine washable?

Yes! Make sure you use a COLD wash and dry them in the shade. We recommend that the AVOCA sandal be hand washed as the silver can come off in the wash.

Those water shoes look kinda hard to put on little feet...

There is a little trick to them. First, flip the back of the shoe down so that little toes can wriggle easily into the front of the shoe. Then, once they’re comfortable, flip the back up and smooth around the neck with your finger. Done! The best bit? They’re difficult for little ones to take off, making them excellent, non-slip house slippers.
