History

THOSE WHO KNOW
WHERE THEY COME FROM
KNOW WHERE THEY NEED TO GO.

Heinrich Dinkelacker had a dream: of a sophisticated, elegant and long-lasting premium shoe. But back in 1879, when the company founder first opened the doors to his own shoe business in the tranquil German town of Sindelfingen, he would have been extremely hard-pressed to imagine that he was laying the groundwork for a shoemaking tradition that would go on for centuries to come. The Heinrich Dinkelacker brand continues to represent handcrafted, premium shoes that suit the most demanding tastes to this very day.

Production

THE DIFFERENCE
BETWEEN EXPENSIVE AND
VALUABLE

The history of shoe manufacturing in Almansa, Spain, dates back to the 16th century. Many small shoemakers settled in the small town of La Mancha to produce footwear for the town and surrounding areas. By the end of the 18th century, there were already more than 200, and the rise of Almansa as the capital of Spanish shoe-making was unstoppable. Many families in Almansa have been linked to the shoemaking trade for many generations. In addition to outstanding skills, a perfect shoe infrastructure has developed here that is unique in Europe.

The hands of the Iberian master craftsmen produce premium shoes in the Budapest style from the high-quality materials that Heinrich Dinkelacker has carefully selected in Europe over the decades
