How and where are your shoes made?

Vanessa knows exactly how our plants in China work. She goes there regularly to validate her next collection, to adapt forms, materials or unsuitable colors, and to check the production before the shoes are shipped to France. To find out more, everything is explained on this page!

I am between two sizes, which one to choose?

Most of our models cut normally. To be sure of your shoe size, don't hesitate to refer to our Size guide. If you are between two sizes, we generally recommend that you choose the size of the bottom. However, it is possible that one model size differently from another. That's why we indicate on each product sheet how to size the shoe, so that you can choose the ideal size the first time!

I'm looking for a model but is exhausted, will there be a restock?

It is quite possible that an exhausted size is back in stock, following a restocking or a customer return. To be alerted when the size is available again, click the alert request button. You will receive an automatic email once the size is available!

For shoes of the category "Last Chance", no restocking is possible, it is therefore the latest sizes available.

How to properly maintain my shoes Vanessa Wu?

First, it is essential to know which materials were used to create your shoes. Are they made with synthetic material, fabric or leather? To get this information, check the product’s page on the e-shop, everything you need to know is detailed in the « Material » tab. 

Synthetic shoes:

For synthetic shoes, it’s easy! They have the great advantage of not needing specific care. However, we do advise you to not wear them on rainy days to avoid drowning them ;) To clean them, you can use a rag slightly humidified and it should do the trick!

Waterproofing synthethic shoes is not recommended. If you still wish to waterproof your shoes, we advise you to test a small quantity of the product on a small part of the shoe, that is hidden in order to avoid any undesired chemical reaction.

Fabric shoes:

The cleaning process of fabric shoes (suedette, velvet effect) is the same than for synthetic shoesTo clean them, all you need is a soft brush to remove impurities without damaging the matieral! Waterproofing is also not recommended.

Leather shoes:

We advise you to regularly brush your shoes to prevent dirt from getting stuck in the leather. It is also important to regularly apply a leather conditioning cream (in small quantity) to nourish, revive and waterproof the leather. Shoe polish is optional. It only makes the leather shine in case the conditioning cream wouldn’t be enough, and stay at the surface of the shoe unlike the cream. Waterproofing sprays aren’t necessary, the conditioning cream is sufficient!

Whatever the material your shoes are made with, we would advise you to use shoe trees that will preserve the shape of your shoes and avoid the leather to collapse. As such, you will avoid deformations, and disgraceful creases. For the material, it’s up to you ! Plastic shoe trees have the advantage of being light, and as such more convenient when travelling. Wooden shoe trees, on the other hand, will absorb humidity and sweat accumulated during the day.

I think my Vanessa Wu shoes have a flaw!

If you have placed an order on the eshop, send us a photo at and we will find a solution.

If you bought your shoes from one of our resellers, we invite you to contact them directly. Indeed, each reseller is independent and therefore has its own customer service, and we do not interfere in their business. If a problem occurs, it is up to the dealer to decide how to fix it, then contact the brand if necessary!
