Ludwig Reiter

Light Blue Suede Leather Espadrilles




Espadrilles are essential equipment for romps in the tropics, but that doesn't mean one should succumb to the cheap and cheerful variety. Ludwig Reiter's are made from buttery soft suede which, when teamed with a breathable leather lining, makes for a thoroughly Rakish alternative to canvas. As is tradition, the espadrilles are finished off with finely woven jute yarn and crepe outer soles.

The story

As one of the few remaining heritage shoemakers still family-owned, traditional techniques and meticulous high standards are of the utmost importance at Ludwig Reiter. Founded in Vienna in 1885, the business is now helmed by great-grandson Till Reiter, who brings expertise passed down through four generations. While those old skills are used for crafting fine leather footwear – the brand’s piece de resistance is the Husaren cavalry boot, worn by Brad Pitt in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds – the house creates contemporary tennis shoes and simple espadrilles with equal flair.
