Founded in the Black Forest region of Southern Germany in 1874, Rieker originally produced shoes for the affluent citizens of Northern Italy. The company soon gained a reputation for quality and has built itself into a household name in Central Europe.
Rieker's philosophy has always been to provide not just a better product, but the best shoes people can buy. Rieker shoes and boots are high quality leisure footwear products that not only look good, but enhance the wearer's lifestyle.
Rieker shoes are not merely decorative, fashionable, products. Their functional features mean they offer much more than that. Every shoe incorporates Rieker's special construction and utilizes lightweight and elastic components to achieve our special anti-stress features. Those features are:
- Minimum weight.
- Optimum shock absorption on varying surfaces.
- Maximum reflexibility (what we call the ´barefoot´ feeling).
- A construction that devotes space to areas where the foot expands through the day.
In today's lifestyle driven market, Rieker is unique in being able to quickly respond to the fashion trends that women and young people want. For many consumers with a hectic lifestyle, who want good looks and performance, Rieker has gained an almost cult like following.
