As a traditional company, we are the second generation with the aim of being a leading manufacturer in the field of comfortable footwear. Three thousand members of staff across Europe, including 95 at our headquarters in Schwanheim, are working to ensure that our customers across the world can experience WALDLÄUFER comfort. Around 15,000 pairs of WALDLÄUFER shoes are produced each day – that is approximately 3 million pairs a year – using traditional craftsmanship and the latest, environmentally-friendly technology.
“With every decision that we make, we are working responsibly towards passing our family company into the hands of the next generation.”
Willehad Bauer, owner of Lugina Schuhfabrik GmbH
The ever-increasing appreciation of high-quality materials, a flexible fit and clever design lies behind the company’s success. “Bound to tradition” is not an empty phrase for us; rather it is lived every day in our company. Valuable expertise is passed from generation to generation and from master to apprentice – this results in a unique handcrafted skill, which can be seen and felt on the end product.
