With more than 125 years of shoemaking under their belt, Josef Seibel is one of Europe’s longest established shoe manufacturers. This family-owned business started in a small German village and is now in its fourth generation under Carl-August Seibel.
All of their sandals, clogs, shoes and boots are expertly handcrafted using the Josef Seibel comfort concepts. Using only the best quality leathers and crafted using traditional methods, most of Josef Seibel’s shoes are still produced within their own factories in Europe.
Hand stitching is a core feature in the footwear offered by Josef Seibel. Traditional hand stitching offers increased flexibility, increased durability, and an original appearance. Josef Seibel likes to say that it gives their shoes a broken in feel right out of the box.
Strobel construction is also another core feature of Josef Seibel footwear. The word "Strobel" describes the specific way of stitching upper leathers and lining to the insole of footwear. The Strobel construction offers a much higher flexibility and strength than many other types of construction utilized in the shoe industry today. As Josef Seibel said, "Our name on the outside, our knowledge on the inside".
After more than 125 years of shoe-making experience, we’d say that’s a lot of knowledge that you can see and feel with every pair of Josef Seibel shoes! Experience it for yourself this holiday season!
