Damenschuhe


Ballet Flats: Inspired by the delicate shoes worn by ballet dancers, ballet flats provide every outfit with a feminine touch. They are characterised by their flat sole and top and go well with chinos, skirts and dresses.

Sandals: Summer sandals are a great all-rounder for warm temperatures and work well for both everyday use and for completing an outfit for a special occasion. Whether it is a high-heeled model or something lower to the ground, strappy or strapless, no woman should be without sandals during the warmer seasons.

Heels: A classically proportioned heel usually stands around 8 cm tall and provides every kind of outfit with a certain grace and elegance. High-heeled shoes create a feminine silhouette and are a great choice for evening-wear outfits.

Slip-ons: Give a casual look a little sleek elegance with a flat slip-on. The model takes its name from the practical home accessory and offers the same slip-on comfort with no lacing-up required. Current trends favour slip-on shoes with thick soles and subtle embellishments.

Trainers: The classic trainer is a staple of every worthy wardrobe. From sporty to elegant, each model offers comfort and an ability to blend with a wide selection of outfits. No matter the occasion, be it an evening outing or a daytime excursion, a pair of high-quality trainers will see you through in style.

Boots & Ankle Boots: Boots are the consummate all-rounder when it comes to the cold season. The height of the cut should depend on the style of the outfit. Ankle boots are excellent for 3/4 and 7/8 trousers, while high boots look fabulous with skirts and dresses. For more support, models with a rubber sole and a pronounced profile are particularly good.

Herrenschuhe


Moccasins: The moccasin is characterised by its eye-catching seams and a soft structure. It can also be combined to great effect with light trousers for a comfortable outfit during the warmer seasons.

Espadrilles: Espadrilles are a great choice for warm days thanks to their breezy nature. This style of shoe is characterised by its combination of cotton and linen with a sole that is traditionally made of knotted plant fibres.

Slip-ons: Give a casual look a little sleek elegance with a flat slip-on. The model takes its name from the practical home accessory and offers the same slip-on comfort with no lacing-up required. Current trends favour slip-on shoes with thick soles and subtle embellishments.

Trainers: The classic trainer is a staple of every worthy wardrobe. From sporty to elegant, each model offers comfort and an ability to blend with a wide selection of outfits. No matter the occasion, be it an evening outing or a daytime excursion, a pair of high-quality trainers will see you through in style.

Dress Shoes: This style of shoe is almost exclusively reserved for use with formal attire. Closed lacing provides an air of elegance and precision. Popular choices include models made from black and brown smooth leather, while modern variants may feature more eye-catching materials such as coloured suede.

Boots The slightly higher boot definitely adds value to a man’s outfit, as its shape is rarely seen elsewhere in the realm of men’s attire. Although they usually provide a certain formal elegance, they can be combined with more than just suits. They also work with jeans and create a harmonious look with a classic wool coat.
