"Accepting no compromise" is the driving force behind the quality and elegant expectations of each pair of sensational shoes, elegant high heels, flats, sneakers and breathtaking boots from the Kennel & Schmenger footwear collection.

In these times of mass production, it has become almost exceptional to encounter individuality and hand-made manufacturing. Kennel & Schmenger is an exciting exception with 95 years of shoe craftsmanship; the family-owned firm has succeeded in perfecting their products and bringing the Kennel & Schmenger footwear collection to an international level. Today the company is one of the leading German manufacturers of luxury shoes and accessories.

The passionate philosophy of the Kennel & Schmenger footwear collection is to only use products of the finest quality such as premium leather, quality craftsmanship and the designs that are the latest international trends. This is the only suitable standard for a fashion-forward, modern woman with high expectations, which is the Kennel & Schmenger customer.

Kennel & Schmenger was founded in 1918, in Pirmasens, which was then well known for its remarkable shoe industry. Kennel & Schmenger has remained a family business ever since. Klaus Kennel managed the firm for 50 years and recently retired in 2011. The firm's tradition-steeped corporate culture is carried on by the two managing directors Andreas Klautzsch and Stefan Frank. Today the company retails its products in 33 countries all over the world.

Kennel & Schmenger has created something that is nowadays rarely found: a link between high quality, authenticity, and the belief in tradition.
