SINCE 1953 WE HAVE PRODUCED OUR SHOES WHERE WE COME FROM.
There’s no place like home! We have produced shoes in the countryside, in our home town of Pramet for more than 60 years. The company has an evolved structure which means stability for our customers and employees. The connection to nature is always there – you can feel it in our shoes.
In 1953 the company was founded by Heinrich HARTJES as an orthopedic workshop. This basic understanding of the human foot and its special requirements is the foundation of the success story of our shoes.
Comfort and health are the focus. Together with attractive design, HARTJES has become the largest shoe manufacturer in Austria.
60 YEARS OF TRADITION
60 YEARS OF PROGRESS
For more than 6 decades, HARTJES has stood for comfortable and functional shoe fashion of the highest quality – well-grounded on traditional Austrian shoe making craftsmanship.
Innovations and new developments have always been part of the company history of HARTJES. The integrated climate management, the removable light cork footbeds, and the linings made of natural materials like lambskin and loden are some of the numerous innovative details representing the constant pursuit of continual optimization of our shoes through in-house developments and state-of-the-art technology.
THIS IS HOW A COLLECTION IS CREATED
THE RIGHT SHOE FOR EVERYONE. ALWAYS UP-TO-DATE.
We at HARTJES share numerous skills and long-time expert knowledge – from the shoe designer to the specially trained expert craftsperson. This is how our shoe collections are created – for all who love fashionable shoes but do not want to take risks regarding foot health.
