If I choose to take advantage of a credit, what does that mean?
Credit notes are a great alternative to refunds or exchanges.
As soon as we receive your pair, we'll generate a credit note in the form of a gift card for the same amount as the pair you originally ordered. So, if you want to give yourself a little time to figure out which other pair to choose, you can use this credit when you've made your choice, as it's valid for 1 year on the site's entire collection.

How long does it take to receive a refund?
As soon as we receive your shoes, if they are intact and received on time, we promise to refund your purchase within a week (excluding holiday periods). Your bank will then take a certain amount of time to complete the transaction. As a general rule, you should allow 48 to 72 hours. Any longer is exceptional.
Concerning refunds via Paypal, it is possible that the refund is delayed by Paypal beyond our control. But please be patient, this delay rarely exceeds 15 days.
Please note that when your order has been paid for with a gift card, the card is automatically credited back to the original order and cannot be refunded.
In the event of a claim, how will I be reimbursed?
You will be reimbursed by the same means of payment you used to place your order. If you paid by credit card, your refund will be credited to your account. Please note that the credit may appear on your account under the name "Mollie", not Patricia Blanchet, which is our online payment platform. If you paid via Paypal, your refund will be credited back to your Paypal account. If you paid with a gift card, it will be credited back to your account for the same amount, and you will be able to use it again for your next purchase.
Who is Patricia Blanchet ? And what is its planetary mission?
A collective of designers on a mission to set in motion a revolution that will make your feet feel safe, pampered, magnified and pampered.
Above all, the family collective aims to pay homage to femininity. And to offer women finely-crafted models where the shoe becomes a luxury accessory, a jewel, a pleasure for the eyes, a joy for the soul.
Where does Patricia come from?
Patricia and her team are 100% Parisian. They have their shoes handmade in Spain, where there is still an unparalleled know-how for making refined, feminine, top-notch, great shoes. Like you.
What materials does Patricia use to make her shoes?
Patricia loves leather and that's what she uses to make her shoes. The inside is leather, the sole too.
For the uppers, if not leather, she uses nubuck, metallic nubuck or metallic stamping nubuck. In all cases, these are raw materials that will always put you in the spotlight.
And of course she often uses sequins. In fact, at the time of writing, we don't know which of the sequins is Patricia.
How do you care for the shoes you buy from Patricia?
Good. These are delicate shoes that need to be taken care of so that they can last over time.
If you've bought a pair in nubuck or metallic nubuck, they need to be waterproofed before you wear them. It's extremely important to repeat the operation often. Once every seven wears, for example.
For leather shoes, leather waterproofing cream is available. Shoe polish is your best ally in keeping your shoes looking their best.
When it comes to glitter, it is important to be extremely careful. Do not use any sprays or waterproofing products that could cause the color to fade.

What to do about shoe soles?
The soles are in leather and all covered with a varnish that gives them a vintage look. This varnish may be a little slippery at first. You can rub the varnish off with sandpaper, for example, or let it disappear naturally by wearing them at home. When the varnish has completely disappeared, the rough, gray leather of the sole will appear. This is perfectly normal. After that, you'll need to keep a close eye on how it develops, and don't wait too long before applying shoe cover.
You should also know that the varnish applied on your soles has a very short life span because it is mainly aesthetic and is not meant to last. After half or a whole day, the film will almost disappear. But don't worry, this is the normal process of the life of a sole. Also, a plastic film is applied to your insole to protect the leather. Once you are ready to wear your beautiful shoes, remember to remove this film and go to your favorite shoemaker.
Are Patricia Blanchet shoes fragile?
Patricia Blanchet shoes are delicate and should be treated like jewelry. It is especially important to treat the skins, but also to be vigilant about the soles and heels. In any case, don't hesitate to consult your shoemaker in the event of damage. He'll make your life easier and extend the life of your shoes.
Why are there not all colors in all models on the site?
That's an excellent question, and one that's been answered. The site lists all the current season's models, plus a few returning basics, and it's on our site that you'll find the widest choice of Patricia Blanchet shoes in the world. But we don't have every possible color variation. We try to offer you as many choices as possible. Alternatively, you can refer to our list of sales outlets in the "Find a store" tab. Some of our retailers have colors that we don't carry or no longer carry.
Patricia Blanchet boots are very tight around the instep. Is this normal?
Yes, the shoes of the brand are generally mounted on rather narrow forms. As for the boots, they are tightened on the arch of the foot so that its maintenance is longer in time. But this is also the case for the whole collection because Patricia Blanchet makes sure to respect precisely the sizes, sizing and footwear for the best experience.
If they are really too tight you have two options, either send them back to us, paying attention to the time limit, or, if you feel that there is not much missing so that you can be comfortable in them, go to your nearest (but most of all the nicest) cobbler and ask him to fit your shoes. It doesn't take long, it doesn't cost much (if he's nice) and it really works wonders.
When I don't wear my shoes Patricia Blanchet, how and where should I keep them?
You can keep them in your dressing room, away from light that could damage their color. Patricias like to be with people as much as possible. If you're not wearing them, and before leaving them alone for a whole day, remember to brush them and talk to them a little to reassure them. Don't hesitate to put them in front of a good film, a Kubrick or a Welles, or to put on the radio a little - FIP and France Culture will do just fine.
If you ever go on vacation and don't have the space to take all your Patricias with you, entrust them to your best friend or your sister so that she can take good care of them and tell them a bedtime story. She can also call you and give you news of them via Facetime. It's vital that any Patricia left alone is taken under the wing of someone you can trust.
