Mike Kosel

Founded 2015 in Germany
Based in Berlin

Mike Kosel has been an orthopedic shoemaker since 1989 and in 2015 he started his own business based in Berlin. Before one of his shoes are made there is a thorough analysis of the gait to map out the exact false loading. After the measurements have been taken and the data analyzed the shoe can be made so that a static correction provides great support and comfort.

Regardless if you need a bespoke shoe for medical reasons, for the love of your feet or out of pure fashion awareness, a handmade bespoke shoe from Mike Kosel stands for highest quality and a stylish fit for everyone.
