LONDON SUPER TRUNK SHOW 2019 – BRAND SHOWCASE #5 — Shoepassion/Heinrich Dinkelacker
German powerhouse Shoepassion has been dominating the German market for a while now. With welted shoes out of Spain at a very good price (£220/€250), there is no surprise why. And a great website at that ships worldwide. For those of you in the US looking for an alternative to your Allen Edmonds or Meermin shoes, here is one option that you should certainly entertain. They have a focus on classic models but with some Italian style twists to them in color, elongated lasts and coloring.
For the first time ever they make their showcase in London at our Super Trunk Show, this March 23rd, along with their sister brand Heinrich Dinkelacker.
A couple of years ago Shoepassion bought one of the older shoe brands of Germany, Heinrich Dinkelacker, to continue developing it into the new century. Dinkelacker is know for their hand welted shoes, made in Hungary, which makes them also known for their traditional Austro-Hungarian style with thick soles and sturdy lasts. However, as of late, they have developed more modern models and last shapes as well, in order to diversify the brand and customer base. Prices start at £440/€500. On top of that they also offer a new bespoke service, scanning the foot with an iPad and a personal last designed from the scan, and then the selected model will be manufactured on these.
It’s always exciting to see new brands hit the London scene so if you have been interested to see one them but never had the chance, now is your time to make your way down to the London town and get a look at what they are both all about!
