Just a stone’s throw away from Simon & Renoldi is the Trippen shoe store. Trippen only stocks its own brand, with shoes for women, men and kids. Trippen designs are unconventional and the company (founded in 1992 by Angela Spieth and Michael Oehle) is committed to environmentally kind and socially responsible production. The products are extremely long-lasting because the individual components can be replaced and renewed. For instance, most of the soles are made of synthetic or natural rubber so they’re hard-wearing, flexible and, above all, recyclable and renewable. Plus, they’re sewn, not glued. Trippen make all of their shoes in a factory north of Berlin or in small, family-run enterprises in Northern Italy. For the most part, the leather they use is tanned using plant-based products and comes from small tanneries Tuscany. The Trippen product range is really huge, from sandals to winter boots and everything between!
