Marching Shoes Ordering Information

All Mustang Band members participating in the fall season will need to provide their own performance shoes.

By ordering through our recommended vendor (see below), your shoes will be shipped directly to our office in time for Band Camp and the vendor will apply a discount to your order.

The group discount codes for Fall 2016 has expired. Please be sure to ship any late shoe orders to your personal dorm/apartment address. You may also want to select expedited shipping to have your shoes in time for Band Camp.

Important information for all sections

  • From the website's cart check out, you will need to scroll down to the “redeem a coupon” box and type in the appropriate code and click submit. The shipping adjustment will be taken off the subtotal.
  • Use the following shipping address:
    Cal Poly Marching Band
    Music Department
    1 Grand Ave
    San Luis Obispo, CA 93407
  • Be sure that the billing address is correct for your credit card. Also, double check that everything else on your order is correct; any shipping for returns will not be covered by the vendor nor Mustang Band.
  • The deadline for ordering your shoes is Wednesday, August 16, 2017 at 8:59pm. If you order your shoes after this deadline, the coupon code will not be valid.
  • Notes regarding sizing:
    1. We recommend that you do NOT reference other brand shoes or "street shoes" for sizing band shoes. Always refer to the measured shoe size from a Brannock device (available at most shoe retailers). If you fluctuate between two sizes, it is recommended to order the larger size. There is also the option to order two sizes and return the size that does not fit, the only downside is the cost of return shipping.
    2. The uppers on marching shoes are stiffer than a common athletic shoe, so factor that in when selecting a size. You do not want your marching shoes too tight. These are just suggestions, and are not a guarantee of desired fit.
