"A good shoe is not a short-lived consumer item that is worn today and discarded tomorrow. It remains untainted by short-lived trends and never goes out of style. A great shoe will accompany you for decades." – Dieter Kuckelkorn. Traditional shoemaking – for Dieter Kuckelkorn that means a lot more than just making shoes using traditional tools and processes: The attitude towards shoes, the image of the company – basically everything that makes a welted Kuckelkorn shoe: Masterly craftsmanship, perfection down to the tiniest detail, zeitgeist ... and plenty of diligence and time. Specifically, this means manufacturing only the very best leather grades, using top quality sole materials, and continuously improving the product shoe. How will you know it really is a Kuckelkorn shoe? Turn it over: On the bottom of each true Kuckelkorn is the typical double seam, which connects the outsole to the welt.
