Paid for next day delivery. Actual delivery was 3 days. No refund!! Only a code to use on your next order which is supposed to give you next day delivery at no extra charge. Poor - because I probably will not purchase through this supplier again.

I was very disappointed as I urgently needed the trainers as soon as possible. They showed as in stock and I paid extra for next day delivery. I then received a note informing that they could not deliver next day and refunding my money. I actually received the trainers 8 days later. If I had known that this would be the case, I would have ordered elsewhere.

This is the only company that I know that will not accept free returns. Furthermore if you take something you bought online to the store you cannot get a refund..only credit note. Totally disappointed

The items arrived in good condition. However, I paid extra for next day delivery but it did not arrive on time.

It was quick and easy to order. But misleading about the belt of the karate Suit left my grandson and me disappointed.

Arrived on time would have been five stars but I get three copies of your emails every time you send out a promo and use Hermes to ship parcels who are well known for being the worst carrier

Returned x3 pairs of trainers to exchange for larger sizes. 2 pairs were exchanged, that was confirmed via the email I received, however the other trainers were not in stock for exchange, was not said in email if they will be sent when next in stock, if so when, or if I would get a refund and when to expect it, or any confirmation that they were being refunded? To call costs extra on top of usual network charges and the email I sent back to enquire states that the mailbox does not work?

It cost me £11 to try on a pair of £49 shoes, £5 to have them delivered and £6 to return them because they're too small. Always get the same size in the same brand, never any issues, this time size 9 is more like an 8. Not very happy, but that's life. Won't be ordering off you again.

Shoes in delivery did not match and appeared to be a previous return. Upset that I now have to wait for the return to be set back before a new pair is dispatched, even having set a picture of the shoes

I visited the Rydon Lane retail park branch of Sports Direct on Tuesday 20th and again on Wednesday 21st April 2021. Although there was a large selection of ladies trainers on display in store, only one of the 7 different pairs my daughters wanted to try on were in stock in the sizes we required.I had to ask a member of staff whether more would be arriving and if so, when, but they couldn’t tell me. I then asked whether I could order the correct size from the Sports Direct website and was told “Probably”. I was disappointed with the lack of stock available in store, as well as by the lack of knowledge or proactivity of the staff members I engaged with. I felt that they should have been offering information to me about when new stock would be arriving and that I could order from the Sports Direct website, rather than me having to ask the questions. I did manage to purchase the 2 pairs of trainers my daughters wanted, directly through the Sports Direct website and had them delivered to our home address, but of course, had to pay extra to cover the costs of the P&P. When I placed the order on Thursday 22nd April 2021, the earliest standard delivery date was Wednesday 28th April. However, I was pleasantly surprised to receive accurate and very helpful tracking information from the courier; Hermes, who delivered both pairs of trainers to us on the afternoon of Saturday 24th April instead. My daughters are both very pleased with their new shoes. One final thing which didn’t appear terribly professional was that the shoebox that the Adidas trainers came on as very battered and torn in places (the Nike box was clearly brand new), which (although the trainers themselves appear to be brand new and unworn) gives the impression that the box (at least), is second hand - which is disappointing after having just spent £95.

Had my delivery come in two parcels and charged me £4.99 to be delivered to my local shop? I also ordered two packs of playing cards and only received one pack!!! and cannot be bothered with messing around for the price of 75p .... Although the delivery came in two halves sports direct kept me informed of the situation and i got superb value for money. Would of given 5 stars if didn't need to pay extra to be delivered to my local shop and the parcels to come in two halves.

Service & goods were good. Unfortunately they did not fit so it cost me nearly £20 on postage for nothing
