The Ludwig Reiter Shoe Manufactory was established in Vienna in 1885. The family business is run in its fourth generation today, and is still based on the production of Goodyear welted shoes in the classical Viennese style.
Throughout the past decades selected quality products such as high class sports, casual and ladies shoes as well as handbags and leather accessories were developed and added to the percentage.
Tradition at Ludwig Reiter is by no means an end in itself, but it seeks to transform and develop. The Viennese shoemaking tradition combines an uncompromising preservation towards high quality standards, finishing techniques and progressive development. New interpretations of the traditional shape and style provide an insight into the contemporary and modern requirements of the clients. All these requests merge into the vision statement of Ludwig Reiter: “The Future of Tradition”.
“Tradition is a Lantern.
The foolish hold on to it,
The clever allow it to lead the way.”
George Bernard Shaw
