Who we are

“Some customers would come to us, even in winter, wearing only slippers. They didn't know they had shoe dermatitis but had figured out how to get some relief from it. With R-lief we are providing a more comfortable and functional solution to their needs."

Health and design combined in a unique brand.

R-lief was born from our deep knowledge of ACD (allergic contact dermatitis) and other major allergies related to footwear. Thanks to the experience we have gained over the years alongside our customers and to a research and development team supporting us, we have created the first shoe that is specific for this disorder. Not a “medical” shoe but a comfortable skin-friendly sneaker that you can wear every day, even if you simply wish to prevent foot irritation.
