COVID-19 Prevention Policy

Retraction Footwear COVID-19 Prevention Policy


We have the following measures in place to ensure that anything you receive from us will be free of the COVID-19 virus.


  • Our printers extrude filament at over 200 degrees Celcius (around 400F) which means that any virus on the raw filament when we receive it is sterilized. 
  • We print, assemble and check every pair within our Australian facility.  We do NOT need to collect parts from various factories to assemble in a different facilities.  Less people involved = less risk.
  • We then seal each pair in a packing satchel meaning that nothing can get into it during transit from our facility to your address.
  • We are a small family owned business with three employees that have direct assess to our production facility.  This reduces the risk significantly compared with a large factory.  And our 3D Printers can't catch COVID-19.
  • We are based in Australia.  As of 21 May 2021, Australia has had less than 30,000 cases total out of a population of 25 million.  Less than 150 cases remain active (most of those are in Quarantine Hotels) with the rest having recovered.  
  • All employees are to remain at home if they are feeling unwell or have any signs of the virus.
