Ludwig Reiter

    Ludwig Reiter’s history goes back all the way to 1884, when Ludwig Reiter I and his wife moved from Bohemian Carlsbad to Vienna, where they opened up a shoemaking workshop in Wieden, the fourth district of the city. Only a few years later, they were already supplying custom made boots and welted shoes to the Austrian imperial security outfit. Fast forward to the 21st century and four generations later: With several international shops and their shoes for sale in bouiques around the world, Ludwig Reiter’s flagship store is located in the historic Drei-Mäderl-Haus in the city’s center, where Beethoven lived during most of his stay 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.
