ROCCAPINA presents a collection of high quality summer sandals handmade in San Mauro Pascoli, Italy.
designed to instantly create a polished look. Designed for women like us,
that struggle to find sophisticated pieces, that easily complement their favourite wardrobe staples and
elevate their casual look without feeling overdressed.
Reflecting life and travels between Europe and Australia the label combines fine Italian leathers
with thoughtfully embellished fabrics, Swarovski crystals and rhinestones.
ROCCAPINA Shoes was founded by Melanie Lia, a German with Australian roots, Mum, Sunseeker, Beachlover, Globetrotter, and… passionate Dreamer.
Following her professional background working in luxury lifestyle and accessories,
she moved to Italy to pursue her passion for footwear design and production.
“I just knew that I wanted something more polished than rubber thongs and platform wedges were not for me. Expensive high end designer sandals were not in my budget so why not design sophisticated sandals, that easily complement my favourite wardrobe staples. Ultimately I wanted sandals that were comfortable and affordable but chic and special enough to elevate my casual summer style without feeling overdressed,” says Melanie.
