„I started this business as an ordinary shoe salesman. Too many times in this particular industry I've seen brands crash and burn...
...for various reasons.That’s why I had this dream, to create something special on the market – to create my own shoe from A to Z.” I began by reading books about ancient history where I found references to handwoven shoe techniques. Furthermore, these shoes were all made from local materials.So, in 2005 I set to work organizing our first collection. We released a comfortable and breathable shoe made from woven elastic. Rock Spring shoes found fans on the European market first. Now they are worn by people all over the world, in 12 countries, and on 4 continents. That is how my second dream came to fruition - I can travel. For work, I explore many places and cultures, and I am constantly learning new things. We now sell hundreds of thousands of Rock Spring shoes worldwide, but we are still a small team. We like it that way. We create great shoes for people who just want to be themselves, who enjoy life and travel. People who live to be free..“

Is one of your feet different from the other?
Or bigger toes? The elastic upper does move with you and adjusts to you – it fits everyone. Our shoes adapt to narrow and wide feet.

How do we make our shoes? Remarkably.You’ll notice “Made in China” written on the shoes but there’s more to those words than you might expect.
Rock Spring shoes are made by stay-at-home employees. Women and men who are, for one reason or another, unable to go to work because they are taking care of their young children or a sick family member.
Every week these employees receive a ball of elastic string from the Rock Spring factory that they knit by hand. When the upper is knit, they’re returned to the factory where the shoe is completed with the insole and the sole. We produce our shoes in China with the help of a local family factory where the workers have been loyal to their employer for over a decade.
We are certain that the work conditions are set fairly.
Your foot, that is: inside each shoe there is memory foam.
As you wear your shoes, the insole will exactly copy the form of your sole. It's as if each shoe were tailor-made specifically for you.
As a professional tennis player, I spend only a few weeks a year at home....
…The rest of the year I am on the road. I travel, I’m on the move all the time. That is why I value comfortable shoes. Not just on the court, but also on a flight, while waiting in the airport, or in those precious free moments off. Besides the superior comfort of the shoes, I like that Rock Spring is a Czech brand."“
...This prototype remains the centerpiece of our collection to this very day.
...and the global market starts to recognize our shoes.
...like Scandinavia, the United Kingdom, and Korea. Sales start in the USA and Canada.
...people in 25 countries on 4 continents are wearing Rock Spring shoes.
Even if we sell a hundred thousand shoes, we wont spend our money on TV commercials...
...We manage everything with our small team – that’s how we’re able to sell our shoes at such a great price.
