Austria Based in Vienna
Alt Wien has a commitement to the tradition of bespoke shoemaking in Vienna. At the outset there is the leather; only the finest boxcalf, original Scotch Grain and genuine Cordovan are used for the uppers. Carefully selected sole leathers guarantee a high degree of durability. The uppers and the soles are united by the robust process of Goodyear welting, stitch by stitch. The noble art of shoemaking.
