1. APOC Store

1.1 What is APOC Store?

APOC Store is a curated online Fashion & Art marketplace dedicated to sourcing progressive and consciously-created pieces from designers and artists across the globe.

1.2 What does APOC Store stand for?

APOC is a combination of the words of "Anthropocene" and "epoch"; it is also a play on the word "apocalypse." We live in the Anthropocene - a time where human activity dominates the world we live in with enormous consequences. As a result, a new generation of creatives has emerged who care about the world and want to make a difference.

Sizing information is provided on the sizing tab on each product page. If you require further assistance with product sizing, don't hesitate to contact us via customercare@apoc-store.com.

Footwear size conversions vary from brand to brand, so please bear this in mind when referring to the conversion charts provided.

4.2 Will you be getting more stock?

We do multiple small drops each week and will do our best to re-stock popular items. However, due to the limited edition, handmade and made-to-order nature of some of the products we stock, this is not always possible. 

Please get in touch with customercare@apoc-store.com for any queries.

The sizes online reflect up to date inventory available; however, designers often update stock. 

Please get in touch with customercare@apoc-store.com for any queries.
