Rainer’s workshop has existed as a shoemaker’s in Mettmann ever since the year 1923, manufacturing made-to-measure shoes and carrying out repairs on shoes and leather articles. For 30 years, Rolf Rainer has further developed the business towards the work with bespoke made-to-measure shoes. In all these years he also did honorary work for the Shoemaker’s Association.
His diploma as a qualified social education worker has helped him to communicate with customers and apprentices alike. The Rainer business has always been training apprentices – 15 of them have left the workshop successfully with their certificate. Rolf Rainer produces round about 50 to 60 pairs of made-to-measure shoes per year.
