What is the warranty on my product(s)?

Last updated: 10/06/2020

We are currently experiencing a high number of contacts, and there may be a delay in processing and resolving your claim. Your claim will be handled based on the date of submission. We thank you in advance for your patience!

Our warranty policy covers against manufacturing defects within 2 years from date of manufacture (as listed on the product label), based on product authentication and original point of purchase. Products older than two years may not be eligible. Adidas does not repair items. We do not cover or have available for replacement the following; insoles, buttons, laces, emblems, drawstrings, or other decorative parts or pieces.

For adidas.ca orders, please use the self-service Returns tool found here if you purchased within the last 30 days.

• For authorized retailer purchases (including adidas retail stores); we recommend returning directly to the retailer for assistance. If they are unable to help, please submit a claim below.

• For unauthorized distributors such as eBay, resellers, or other 3rd party marketplaces; we regret to inform you that we are unable to offer any support on these products.

Most claims are resolved within 2-4 weeks of form submission. Defective merchandise will not be returned to you once received by our Quality Assurance team. By submitting a claim, you accept all the terms and conditions of our policy and accept all decisions as final. Dependent on a formal evaluation, you will be provided with an online credit towards a suitable replacement, whenever possible.

The life expectancy of a product depends on the individual using it; their characteristic wear pattern and the conditions in which it’s used. Adidas reserves the right to determine between a defective product and normal wear-and-tear, and to reject any claims that have exceeded their reasonable lifespan or have incurred any damage not directly related to a manufacturing defect, including through improper care, misuse or accident. Our liability extends to the original purchase only – adidas does not offer secondary replacements or further warranty assistance on items resulting from a previous claim.


Please note that while there is no time limit to when you can claim your lifetime warranty, the coverage is limited to 1 replacement per original bag purchase. Adidas does not accept claims for bags resulting from a previous warranty replacement.
