"More? Not possible. Then you would have to produce abroad. And that would no longer be my work. They would no longer be my shoes." And they must remain so, 100%. This is the most important thing to master shoemaker Josef Zollner. A man who has stuck to his principles since 1993. He is proud of his rare profession and does not tend to be a volcano of words. A Bavarian original - more action than words, and always willing to surprise.
ONE IS NEVER FINISHED LEARNING
And while we are on the topic of "size", shoes individually tailored to size are of course also part of Josef Zollner's repertoire. His most exotic piece shows just how eccentric the customers' wishes can be. A cowboy boot decorated with hand-stitched flames and an American flag provide a little bit of Johnny Cash flair. Which somehow suits the master, even if he prefers to wear trekking shoes with his jeans and belt buckle. When asked about future product ideas, he responds with his typical charming silence. A mischievous smile is followed by some very revealing words: "I have some already. But I'm not going to say. Time will tell."
You should definitely take a look at his shop and his wonderful shoes. They are all handmade: Made of high-quality materials, German quality leather with original double stitching. From robust felt boots to the sporty trekking model to Haferlschuhe to be worn with traditional costume or jeans.
There's a lot to discover.
