A SHOEfabrik Strategic Partnership provides all the benefits of world class product design and development, combined with the ease of doing business as if utilizing an extensively staffed in-house team based in the country of origin. 

SHOEfabrik is an Asia based, European owned and managed, footwear design, development and sourcing company.

Founded in 2002 by Asia veterans, David Solk and Irmi Kreuzer, the company comprises a 70 strong team with broad based skills and experience gained from working with leading global brands.

Working on the principle of Concept to Container, SHOEfabrik offers services from line building to product creation (including advanced development and innovation), quality control and production delivery.

SHOEfabrik provide design concepts based on client briefs or work directly with the client's designers - whichever is preferable.

With an extensive knowledge of product development and production control running through the whole team, clients can be assured that their products are specified using materials from the most appropriate vendors, and are produced with the most suitable manufacturing partners.



The goal is uncomplicated and the focus is very clear: exceed expectations!

SHOEfabrik’s Research, Development and Technical teams do not subscribe to mediocrity or generic product creation, every new product we help to create must have a reason to be and must strive to be exceptional.

Be it the lightest, fastest, softest, healthiest, most comfortable, most protective, most colourful, most cost effective, most premium, most functional, most eco-friendly, or simply the coolest. Expect the exceptional, we do.
