Tresca Facts & information

General information

How authentic are your sandals?

It is very important to us that we stay true to the tradition of the Capri sandal. Our soles and jewelry are manufactured by the same vendors that most of Capri cobblers use on the island.

What materials do you use for your sandals?

As in Capri, the heels are a combination of wood wrapped in leather and our soles are made by stitching, never gluing, thinner layers of leather soles together. The soles also contain a metal shank for durability and support. The straps are made of genuine calf leather or lambskin then applied to the soles for a custom fit.

Are the sandals really made to order?

Yes. Each pair of sandals are made by hand in our Tampa location when an order is placed, making each pair unique.

Are sandal orders returnable or am I able to cancel an order?

No. Regretfully, because each pair of sandals are custom made to order no returns or cancellations are permitted.

How do I know what size to choose?

In the Custom Fit section, there are outlines available of our soles. Print them and compare to your feet. Be sure to put your heel all the way in the back and make sure your toes stay within a 1/4" of the outline. If you think the size is exact, it is best to try to go up a size for comparison.

How shall I store my sandals?

Tresca will provide you with a custom bag made especially for our sandals. We suggest you use this bag for storage as well as travel. Be sure to keep your sandals away from direct sunlight or moist environments.

Do I need to clean my sandals with anything specific?

In general, your sandals should not need cleaning. We do not recommend you clean them with any chemicals. If you need to, using only water you can wipe them clean with a slightly damp cloth. Make sure they are completely dry before wearing them.
