I'M NOT PERFECT. I'M HANDMADE.

Roccamore shoes are handmade by some of the most skillful, knowledgeable, and talented shoemakers in the world. They are put together completely by hand, and/or by human-operated machinery. The finishing processes are done 100% by hand.

Unlike many mass-produced brands, roccamore shoes are not covered with heavy coatings, which often contain plastic to give the shoes an artificially-perfect finish.

The fact that our shoes are made by hand in natural materials means there can be tiny imperfections, which in no way harm the quality or wearability of the shoes. These imperfections are not defects, but rather a reminder that the shoes are produced sustainably and with integrity.

If you believe there is an imperfection which prevents you from wearing, enjoying, or loving the heels - please send us pictures at contact@roccamore.com

PROTECTIVE SPRAYS

We recommend spraying your leather or suede shoes with the roccamore shoe protector all over the outer surface, for full protection. You can also use any other brand of suede/leather combination spray. Spray the shoes from 20cm distance, as straight and evenly as possible. Let them dry for at least 12 hours. Repeat once a month for optimal protection.

DO NOT USE SPRAY ON our metallic (gold or silver) models. The chemicals inside the spray can react negatively with the lamination of the leather and cause damage.  

You do not need to use a protective spray on roccamore shoes made with glitter or pony hair leather. It will not damage them, but it will not protect them either.

GENERAL SHOE CARE

Keep your shoes away from excessive heat, rain, snow, sleet, hail, and other liquid hazards. Should that happen, allow them to dry out naturally. Don't ever put them close to the radiator, as it may melt the glue and ruin the shoes.

If the soles wear out or get damaged, they can be repaired by a shoemaker. For good maintenance, we recommend doing that at the first signs of serious wear and tear, as repairs are easier and more effective before the damage gets too heavy.

Roccamore heels are covered in various materials; whether it is the same soft leather or suede used to make the entire shoe, or has special details such as lacquered plastic, or patent leather; we use the highest quality materials. Despite using the best materials, our heels are still delicate and should be treated with extra care. Therefore, we do not recommend biking or driving in your roccamores. If you do, please be mindful of the heels, as they may get scratched. If this happens, they can usually be repaired by a shoemaker.

STORING YOUR SHOES

Leather needs to breathe. Give your shoes a 24h dry-timeout once a week, especially if you wear them daily. Otherwise, the leather can harden and may start to smell.

Store your leather shoes in a cool, dry place. Cold air kills odour, so you can leave your shoes out for a fresher experience, when possible.Never store your shoes in a plastic bag or box; as they can stiffen when leather is not able to breathe.

MARY REY

Due to the natural leather used for Mary Rey, you may see some evidence of the chemical-free treatment from the final step of production. This treatment contains salt, which under certain circumstances can become too dry, causing it to appear white.

If you see white marks on your shoes, this is not considered a defect and can be resolved by using a damp microfiber cloth to gently wipe them off. Do not use washing liquids, just a tiny bit of water. In time and with wear, the white traces will disappear completely.
