History

Since the beginning of Trippen in the early 1990's, the company has remained true to its aspiration to perform beyond common fashion rules while establishing its own unique way to design and produce shoes. When Angela Spieth and Michael Oehler came across a special style of wooden sole from the 70‘s in a traditional lasts factory, this discovery inspired the brand which embodies the spirit of its home city, independent and unconventional. Almost three decades later, Trippen continues to produce its unique shoes in its own factory, 60 km north of Berlin, according to the highest environmental and social standards.

Structure

With their unique soles, unconventional pattern technique and iconic silhouettes, Trippen shoes are designed to be timeless, and ever avant-garde. From the minimal to the experimental, each model is made to last - transcending seasons and outliving trends
 to instead grow with their wearer as they journey through life. Over 2000 models are permanently available in over 30 different materials and colours, and can be customised to suit individual preferences.

Quality/Fair Work

High quality design begins with high social responsibility standards. In order to ensure good
working conditions for its employees, Trippen founded
 its own factory in a former GDR shoe production facility
in Zehdenick, Brandenburg, in 1998. Today, Trippen structures its design process around the needs and ideas of its around 100 production members, each of them valued as an individual and benefits from fair pay and flexible working conditions.

Sustainability

In addition to their comfort Trippen shoes are characterized by their longevity and unique quality. The stitched connections between rubber soles and uppers make our models highly durable and the use of solvent-based adhesives is minimized. The shoes consist of different components that can be replaced and renewed in Trippen’s own workshop. As an alternative to the fast fashion trend, Trippen offers a long-lasting product.

Environmental considerations and ecologically-friendly production process are equally embedded into Trippen’s design process. The use of vegetable-tanned leather and timbers such as alder, poplar and beech are obtained exclusively through European suppliers, and provides for the longevity of each pair of shoes. The proximity of the factory and warehouse in Brandenburg to Trippen`s headquarter and design-workshop in Berlin-Treptow ensures short delivery routes to keep carbon emissions low.
