Two things that aren’t often heard together, fashion and function seem to be at odds to each other. And while this may apply more to women’s fashion than to men’s, there are moments when you think ‘these brogues are simply not comfortable’ or ‘this pocket is definitely not big enough to hold anything!’ However, there is a company that have been creating beautifully crafted and aesthetically pleasing but comfortable shoes, Rieker.
The company began in the home of efficiency, Germany, near the black forest in 1874 by Heinrich Rieker and even remains in the Rieker family today. They have grown to become one of Europe’s largest footwear manufacturers, producing over 50,000 pairs of shoes a day. The Rieker brand has won many retailer awards for their brand as well as customer service.
Their designs are aimed for everyday use but still retain a sleek and stylish look. Their leather Chelsea boot design, for instance, would look best in black paired with a suit for smart office wear or for formal evening wear. Their brown Chelsea boot with brogue detailing paired with jeans and a T-shirt or casual shirt creates a stylish casual look. As well as having style credential, these shoes are also made to the highest quality. They are hand- stitched to ensure a good fit and some designs also have anti-stress technology that mean that they are lightweight, comfortable and flexible.
