No. ColorLab boots cannot be returned.

It is important that you know your skate size, both length and width, prior to ordering. ColorLab boots cannot be returned because of sizing issues.

If the boots you receive are made incorrectly from the PDF design form you submitted, please contact Customer Service at or call 1-800-698-6893.

Abilene leather is a very stiff material that can be difficult to work with in some instances. It is stiff and doesn’t allow for color logos to be stamped on it. Because of this, we can only allow for clear/embossed logos on Abilene. For this reason, we moved it to the Suede section so that if chosen, the only option for logos on a part of the boot that includes one is clear/embossed.

Yes. Some may find it hard to choose a color and would like to see what it physically looks like before making a final decision. Free swatch samples of all of our ColorLab leathers can be ordered by contacting our Customer Service Team directly by emailing or by calling 1-800-698-6893.
