History

Much has changed since Johann Müller founded his workshop for custom-made shoes and since his products became the embodiment for high-quality footwear produced in accordance with old handcraft principles.

Today, his grandchildren focus on international brand licenses such as bugatti shoes.  However, perfect fits, above average quality materials and first class workmanship are still part of the most important values of the company. And we intend to keep everything the same in the future ...
