Zamberlan shall make all warranty determinations and reserves the right to either replace, repair, or issue credit for valid warranty returns. All customers must attain a Warranty Return Authorization (WRA) number prior to shipping their boots to Zamberlan Canada, as no claims shall be accepted without a valid and registered WRA number.
