Florian Haderer

Founded 1900 in Austria
Based in Salzburg

In 1900 Florian Haderer founded this now time-honoured business offering custom-made shoes. The current owner, Herbert Haderer, represents the 3rd generation to run the business. The workshop is located in Grossgmain near Salzburg. The shop in the Pfeifergasse is small and unimposing and only opens for business on Wednesdays.

Almost everything the shop sells is produced in the company workshop, is unique and custommade. The product range is completed with a fine selection of sophisticated footwear and accessories from highly reputable shoemakers. One very special product sold here is the handsewn double-seam ‘Haferlschuhe’ manufactured in the Haderer family’s workshop. ‘Hand-sewn double-seam’ means the leather lining, leather uppers and the sole are all sewn together with one thread – twice.

‘Schuhe Haderer’ became well-known in the 1950s when Rudolf Haderer, father of the present owner, developed a new ski boot with Toni Sailer, who won three Olympic gold medals in 1956. Around 30 years previously, Florian Haderer had produced custom-made climbing boots for the members of a German Himalayas expedition.
