Ludwig Reiter

    It was in 1884 when Ludwig Reiter I and his wife came to Vienna from the Czech Republic to open a shoemaking workshop in Wieden. Before long, their custom-made boots and welted shoes became part of the Austrian imperial security's uniform. Four generations and several worldwide boutiques later, Ludwig Reiter established their flagship store in Drei Mäderl Haus, where Beethoven stayed during his sejour in Vienna. Within these historic walls Reiter showcases their hand made shoes and accessories. At Reiter, “tradition is by no means an end in itself, but seeks to transform and develop.” And so traditional methods are used to create classic shoes with modern influences. The company's shoes, boots, loafers, sandals and pumps are manufactured in the Süßenbrunn Manor which they purchased in 2010 and renovated from the ground up. The company is especially proud of the Goodyear welting method which Ludwig Reiter II brought back from his travels to the United States around the turn of the century, and continues to be practiced today. Reiter uses only the finest materials to create smart and elegant footwear for all seasons and activities from dress shoes to fur lined boots and summer moccasins.
