To achieve true beauty and comfort, at MOCALMO, we refuse to compromise on quality.
That’s why all of our sneakers are handmade from start to finish by artisans in Italy’s Le Marche region using locally-sourced materials. Known as the world’s best and oldest shoe manufacturing district, Le Marche has a vast web of craftsmen who leverage time-honored production techniques that place Italy at the forefront of high-end, luxury footwear. Our manufacturing partner itself is a family-run factory with generations of shoe-making experience.
Behind all of our pairs is an artisan that pays close attention to every detail as he or she constructs our sneakers. This gives each pair a personal touch that makes your sneakers unique.

Our lasts, which give the sneakers their shape, have been studied and refined over the years to achieve a glove-like fit for your feet with a comfortable roomy toe box.
We intentionally make our sneakers with European full-grain calf leather because its characteristics make it the best material for footwear. Europe’s more protective breeding standards and stringent ecological regulations make a significant difference in the leather’s quality.
In addition to our leather’s natural beauty, we also love its other properties:
We use EVA cup soles because they are lightweight, durable and flexible. They also provide great shock absorption. For increased longevity, our artisans hand-stitch our soles’ sidewalls to our sneakers’ leather uppers.
