Are your stores open?
All The Trybe stores are open with safety protocols in place to comply with all Government directives. Please see below for our COVID-safe plan.
To find your nearest store, please see our Store Locator.
Hygiene and social distancing measures
To help make our stores safer, we’ve introduced a COVID-safe plan to help us maintain an appropriate distance from each other while in our stores. We will review and adapt these in-store measures as the environment evolves.
1. Mandatory face coverings in-store
Update: As of 6:00 pm on Friday the 26th of March 2021, as per Victorian Government guidelines, fitted face masks will no longer be required in retail settings, however must be carried with you at all times.
Please note that as face masks are mandatory in Greater Brisbane, masks must be worn when shopping in-store.
2. Introduce a limit to the number of customers in-store at any given time
Our stores will have signage displayed with the max capacity allowed in-store at any one time. If the store has reached capacity, the number of customers will be managed using a one in, one out policy. Shopping centres may also introduce capacity limits so we strongly advise checking on their websites before heading in.
New booking service - available in Victoria only
Please note that we've introduced a booking service for our Victorian customers. This service is available in all Victorian stores. We strongly recommend using this service to save time and get you into the store as quickly as possible.
How it works
- Head to our Store Locator.
- Enter your suburb/postcode and select the store
- Select the number of visitors and a time slot
- You'll receive an SMS confirmation
- When you arrive at the store, click on the link you received to confirm your arrival
- You'll then receive a follow-up SMS confirmation. Show this to the staff member when you arrive at the store
3. Maintain 1.5 metres apart from each other where possible
Social distancing tape will be placed around our floors and seating areas. These can be found throughout the store as reminders, as well as areas where you may be required to queue.
4. Use EFTPOS/Paywave/Tap n Go services available
We strongly encourage you to use your card or phone to tap and pay instead of cash, whenever possible.
5. Use sanitisation station upon entering the store
A team member will be at the entry door to offer hand sanitiser which all customers will be required to use before entering the store.
6. Regular cleaning routines throughout the entire store
We apply the highest standard of cleanliness and hygiene across our stores. We have increased the routine cleaning of frequently touched hard surfaces.
7. Remove and put on your own footwear
Our team will still be available to assist you with any sizing questions you may have, however they will maintain 1.5-metre distance to comply with social distancing. Our stores will have disposable try on socks and gloves available for customers.
8. Training for team members on social distancing and additional hygiene measures
All of our team members will be required to complete a training course.
Thank you for playing your part in helping us practise social distancing. We appreciate your continued support as we work through this together.
We hope to see you in-store or online soon.

How do I find the correct size for my kids?
Sizes can vary by style and by brand, so we know getting the right size can be a little tricky. We've done some of the hard work for you with our size converter which includes CM measurements in every brand.
You can also view our size conversion charts on every individual product page, just look out for the options below when shopping any style.
How to measure:
To ensure you choose the correct size we recommend you follow the method described here.
- Put a sheet of paper along the wall and fixed to the floor using scotch tape.
- Have your kid stand on the paper, straightened, wearing socks, heels and back against the wall and feet together.
- Draw the outline of both feet and draw the straight line where the silhouette is longer. Draw another line parallel to 0.5 cm from this line so the clearance is measured.
- Finally, measure the distance from the wall to the second line you have drawn (both feet do not have to be the same length).
- This will be your reference when converting this length to a shoe size via our Size Conversion Charts
Already own a pair of shoes in the brand?
Generally sizing tends to be standard across brands, although sizes can vary slightly depending on the style, shape and material of the shoe. The size of the pair that you already own is a good guide!
