Partner / Master Shoemaker
Kirstin Hennemann is our master shoemaker. With dedication and a detailed detection sense she will discover the true needs of your feet for a carefree shoe. You do not need to have a clear idea how your desired model should look like when you come to us. Kirstin Hennemann will creat the model together with you. She studied politics and German when she walked through Frankfurts shopping disctrict and discovered that she could not find any nice shoes for her admittedly demanding feet. This led her to the decision to make them herself. After her apprentice years at a master shoemaker at the theaters she worked for a orthopaedics master shoemaker. Kirstin Hennemann opened her first bespoke shoe shop in 2002 in Berlin. Now everyone can benefit from her experience and the informal atmosphere at our bespoke shoe shop.
