I`VE BEEN WATCHING THEM FOR THE LAST YEARS AND STILL LIKE THEM. TIME TO GET A PAIR OF WOODEN TRIPPEN.

Combination of own design vocabulary plus knowing the handcraft leaves me looking at them for a long time. (I do not own a pair of them yet, for I can hardly pay my rent.) Trippen, berlin based shoe manufacturer, is always working with the same shape of shoelasts and soles while using the same materials. Originating something new, starting from the same base always, requires a massive potential of creativity. The models do not get exchanged by the seasons and Trippen takes up the baton for working conditions and environmental sustainability in the production process. Placing value on the durability is in line with my oppinion, that good shoes get better the longer you wear`em #######
