If you didn't receive a confirmation email please check your junk folder. With so many numerous email servers used around the world the order confirmation and shipping confirmation does occasionally end up in the junk folder.
For any shipments with FedEx, DHL Express or DPD you will receive automatic tracking from them. If you ordered by standard free shipping you can track your order using the order tracking number received via email. However, it normally takes 24-48 hours before the package can be tracked with your local postal courier who will deliver the package.
To follow your parcel, please use the provided tracking number in your shipping confirmation email and track the shipment on your local courier postal service website.
For any other country, please refer to your local courier using the tracking number or have a look on https://parcelsapp.com/en to find out.

During checkout there is a field where you can input your discount code. On mobile devices you have to click on "Show order summary" before this field is visible. After you have applied the code you move on to choosing payment options. Please note if you go to express checkout prior to doing this step the code will not be applied.
If you received a discount code that does not work it might be due to one of the following reasons:
1. The discount code has expired.
2. The discount code is not applicable on items already on sale.
3. The order amount is less than €40 / $45.
4. The discount code cannot be combined with other promotions.

We aim to ship your items to you within 1-2 working days. You will receive an email letting you know as soon as your items have shipped that includes a tracking number. If you haven't received one please check your junk folder.
For all packages to the US, the tracking of USPS will say "Origin post is preparing shipment" until the last leg of the delivery journey. This does not mean that the package has not been sent, only that it has not yet been processed within the USPS domestic network. Under "Tracking History" on the USPS website, you can see the actual date the package was initially sent.
Free deliveries are made using your local postal service. We also ship express orders with DPD, DHL Express and FedEx.
For EU countries and USA there is no customs tax. Other international customers are solely responsible for payment of all duties, import taxes, and brokerage fees. These additional fees are not included in the cost of shipping, and we are not able to provide estimates of what this amount may be for a specific order or item. Please note all orders are shipped from the Netherlands.
Customs, duties, and taxes can vary widely, so please check with your local customs agency for more details before you place an order.
We offer free shipping to the UK, and any items that cost less than £135 include all taxes & fees.
However, according to new Brexit-regulations, import VAT charges are only covered at the point of sale for orders that cost less than £135 (not including shipping). Above this value the VAT obligation falls on the recipient in the UK. For any orders above this value we therefore recommend that you make multiple orders to avoid any potential customs and handling fees.
If you are hit with customs VAT, please write to us and we will refund you the UK VAT (20%). Please note we never refund any courier handling fees.
Of course! We want you to love your VALLONs and believe that you shouldn't buy things you don't need or won't use. That is why we offer free returns for all orders in Europe and USA for up to 30 days after purchase.
For any other countries or if you have any other questions please see: Return Policy
To make a return please go to our Returns Policy.

Our eyewear is made with premium materials and quality craftsmanship, and like all nice things, it is always best to handle them with care. Here are some great care tips:
If you take your VALLONs into the pool or the ocean, or if they come in contact with a lot of sunscreen or sweat, please make sure to rinse the glasses under the tap for a few minutes by the end of the day (especially with mirrored lenses!) to get rid off any residue of the previously mentioned substances. Otherwise, they will start to eat the coating and damage the lenses. After cleaning them, gently dry with the microfibre cloth that comes with the sunglasses. Avoid using your t-shirt or paper towel as they can be tough on the lenses.
Please also avoid using lens cleaners! Only fresh water is needed for a ‘deep clean’. When cleaning your eyewear, handle your frames by gripping the bridge or the temple of your eyewear.
When you are not wearing your VALLONs, store them in their hard case / dust bag:
Never leave your sunglasses inside the car as the temperature or direct heat from sunlight can cause damage to the frame and the lenses. Never place your sunglasses / ski goggles with the lenses facing down to avoid unwanted scratches and accidental damage. Again, this is especially important with mirrored lenses, which are more prone to get scratched. If they are not on your face, keep them in their case!
The company HQ is in Amsterdam, Netherlands while the heart and soul of the company is in Verbier, Switzerland. Please note all products are shipped from The Netherlands.
Yes we do! Its called the VALLON Sports Club and if you are interested in joining please apply here.
