Made in Berlin
One of the most attractive things about Trippen shoes, apart from their individual and often artistic design and unbelievable comfort, is the fact that the designers Angela Spieth and Michael Oehler produce a socially responsible, ethical and environmentally friendly product from all natural fabrics.
Trippen produce a range of styles from classic designs to the more avant-garde. You can also have your shoes custom made by choosing the leather and sole type and you only have to wait 3 weeks.
The factory is mostly based in Germany with only 20% of production outsourced to small villages in Italy and with work like that, you wont find these shoes anywhere on the mass market. In Berlin you'll find them at their flagship store in the Hackesche Höfe or the Trippen gallery on Alte Schönhauser Strasse.
A pair of Trippen shoes may set you back anywhere from €200 upwards depending on the shoe but with the way they produce their goods and the quality of the shoe, you will be wearing a smile for many years to come.
