As passionate shoemakers,
we are head over heels
Soles are our specialty.
Every shoe stands and falls by the sole. It gives the shoe good grip and provides support. It determines whether a shoe is light and comfortable. It cushions every step and lets us walk as if on clouds. And it essentially determines the design of the shoe. Among others, we specialise in the “Direct Injection” technology or direct soling with polyurethane (PU). In this process, the polyurethane sole is injected directly onto the upper so that it bonds seamlessly with the shoe. This direct soling does not require the use of harmful adhesives and makes the shoe particularly robust, hard-wearing and durable. However, it also makes the sole particularly light and flexible and offers optimal cushioning properties. For optimal wearing comfort. See more in the video.
Special processes require special know-how.
Our expertise goes beyond soles: We are also experts in footbeds – the inner soles or insoles. Ours are ergonomically shaped, ensure a good climate in the shoe and can even be easily replaced with special orthopaedic soles in many of our shoes. The “prefect fitting line” marking on the insoles of our superfit children‘ shoes even helps to determine how well a shoe really fits.
Lining materials meet the strictest criteria
All leather linings and removable leather insoles in our collections are tanned chrome-free and meet the strict limit requirements of our proprietary VIOS® development platform. This means they meet the strict requirements of our VIOS® Restricted Substance List and tests are carried out far above legal and industry standards.
