RōM Shoes is a shop inspired by owner Annalisa Romano’s love of roaming around world and shoes.
She has always dreamed of owning her own business and has a track record of diving wholeheartedly into uncharted waters. After a string of serendipitous happenings, two being moving to and falling in love with St. Johns, she took the plunge and opened RōM Shoes.
In her own words …
RōM features shoes, accessories and art for men, women, and children. Quality and comfort are key to beautiful shoes. Not every shoe will fit everyone perfectly, but at RōM we help you to find the ones that do work for your specific needs. Our ever evolving shoe collection of leather and some vegan options reflects a classic style while throwing in a touch of the unexpected.
We are endlessly searching for emerging designers and continue to support tried and true brands. Some lines are made to order and are brought in small runs, so make sure to stop in or check the web shop frequently to see what is new!
A very important factor in deciding what to bring into our shop is the brand’s business practices. It is our belief that if the brand has a strong sense of commitment to more than just the bottom line, a very high-quality product will ensue. Some of our brands are from Fair Trade Certified factories. Some are employee-owned. Others give a percentage of profits to help causes abroad and here in the US.
Gone are the days that anyone has to suffer through uncomfortable shoes!
I look forward to meeting you,
~ Annalisa Romano
