- Be an individual at least 16 years of age

- Follow the official Instagram page of Remus Uomo
- “Like” the publication of the contest on Instagram
- Participants must make a comment on the contest publication (defamatory or offensive commenters will be disqualified)

If none of them comply with the requirements, another three random numbers will be generated, so that the prize does not end up being declared void.

Otherwise, he or she shall be publicly asked to contact Remus Uomo In this case, the winner must contact Remus Uomo in a private Instagram message within the three (3) calendar days after the notification was published.
If the winner cannot be contacted within the 3 calendar days from the first contact attempt, or waives the prize, the winner will lose his or her right to claim the prize. The fact that the winner does not contact Remus Uomo within this period will entail renouncing the prize, while all the transferable rights inherent to holding the winning title will be expressly assigned perpetually to Remus Uomo although the participant shall not be able to claim for any right, compensation or indemnity of any type from Remus Uomo.
The prize will consist of a pair of black leather sneakers from Remus Uomo’s autumn/winter 2017 range. The prize will not be broken down. Gift will be delivered by courier to the address indicated by the winner, and shipment costs will be paid by the organising company.
