We act in line with our expressive brand name WALDLÄUFER: It is a symbol for a closeness with nature and strength. The core of our brand comes from this: a symbiosis of sustainability and advancement.
WALDLÄUFER shoes have character. They are a symbol of an eventful life full of optimism and drive. With their perfect fit, lightweight nature and their contemporary design, our comfortable shoes are the ideal companion, both for the every day and for trips around the world.
Sustainability is our path to progress. We handle natural resources with care as we want to be able to pass our family-run company onto our subsequent generations. We predominantly source our leather from regular suppliers from Germany and Italy. The trust resulting from decades of working together gives us the reassurance that our high standards regarding ecology, ethics and health-related issues are met.
Leather is a natural material and only acquires its desired characteristics through the tanning and dying process. During processing we ensure that the leather is treated as gently as possible. As such, our materials far exceed the statutory requirements regarding substances and ingredients used. This is ensured by regular inspections by certified test institutes.
We see sustainability as a holistic concept. That is why we manufacture our products in Europe. This allows us to benefit from short production routes, and means that we are helping to promote trade relations within Europe. In recognition of our responsibility as a company, we demonstrate social commitment in the relationship that we have with our staff. We place great value on fair and socially acceptable working conditions at all of our locations.
We only use fine quality leather. As a result, we are able to guarantee the consistent high standards of all of our shoes. This claim is reflected in our products: WALDLÄUFER shoes are durable and always offer great comfort for the wearer.
