As a result of the decisions of the government, we also had to make some changes. In the meantime I am firmly convinced to continue my project of the heart. Even if it is difficult or impossible to make realistic plans in the current situation and the financing has not yet been finally clarified, IContinue reading »
You’re great! We are overwhelmed! Our announcement that we are closing has triggered a huge wave of sympathy from you, be it in comments on Facebook and Instagram or in very moving emails and calls. Your main reaction was: That can’t be true, there has to be a solution for it to go on! OurContinue reading »
Webshop temporarily offline from February 19 to 20, 2020
From now until tomorrow 7 p.m. we temporarily switch off the webshop. We need to compare our remaining shoes with the webshop warehouse to save you disappointments.
From Thursday evening you can order as usual.
We are currently receiving many orders, which we are very happy about. Unfortunately, we have not been able to find and incorporate helping hands at such short notice. So you sometimes have to wait a little longer for your shoes. We apologize for that!
Stock Alert function
If the shoe of your choice is no longer in stock, you can be notified as soon as the shoe is back in stock. We always have some returns. Just follow the instructions on the product page and finally confirm the order by clicking on the link in your email. Also check your spam folder.
We continue to give a 30% discount on all shoes!
With a heavy heart I decided to stop the shoe development and production under the name Aehrenkranz and to close the business.
Between March and December 2019, I had to deal with a total of seven months of delays in delivery and was either unable to offer any shoes or only shoes that did not fit the season. Meanwhile, month after month, operating costs continued to accrue, which I had to cover without significant income. My financial buffer shrank to such an extent that I could no longer delegate necessary work and could not invest sufficiently.
In the end, I was faced with the decision to risk my health due to overwork or to end my heart project.
I chose health and time with my little child.
What’s next now?
For you, dear customers, this now means that we will sell all remaining shoes at reduced prices in the coming weeks.
We are giving a 30% discount on all shoes in February!
For me it means that my countless design ideas for stylish, yet sustainable and foot-friendly shoes made of natural materials can continue to ripen in my mind until they fall on nutritious soil.
I still think that the world needs fair and meaningful products, that the shoe and fashion industry has to rely on fair trade and working conditions as well as ecologically justifiable materials and that the idea of beautiful and healthy shoes with as little plastic as possible has a bright future. Because there are more and more of us who want to save our planet!
Even if Aehrenkranz of this kind will soon no longer exist, the ideas will live on.
Thank you all for your interest, your questions and your overwhelmingly positive feedback on my shoes!
I’ve learned an incredible amount in the past three years.
On January 16 we will start the winter sale which will last until the end of the month.
We give 25% discount on all winter models NORDPOL. Only while supplies last.

We are not friends of “Black Friday” but of “Colourful Autumn”!
Until the last autumn day of this year, December 21st, we celebrate the colourful autumn – in German “Bunter Herbst” – with 20% discount on our models Reiselust and Freudentanz from the colourful autumn collection!
Many colours and sizes that have been out of stock will be available again!
Our action starts on Friday, 29. November 2019 at 00:01 Berlin time.
Just enter the discount code Bunter Herbst during the checkout process in the webshop and get a 20% discount. *
p.s .: With thick socks and our insertable insoles, the shoes are also good for mild winter days.
* Each discount is redeemable only once per buyer and can not be combined with other coupons. The action ends on 21.12.2019 23:59 German time.
Currently our winter boots are still in production. We will receive the shoes shortly, so we can ship them to you at the beginning of December.
Since we only have a limited edition made, we recommend that you do not hesitate long.
Suitable ankle boots and shoes for the transitional seasons can also still be found in our online shop.
Matching insoles new in the shop
Simultaneously with the winter boots, we bring out two new flexible insoles: one made of 100% German wool felt and a plant-based one made of organic cotton, hemp and cork.
2nd quality under “SPECIAL OFFERS”
From the models Reiselust and Freudentanz we soon start selling second quality under the category SPECIAL OFFERS. These are for example shoes in which the leather is noticeably grained and where the pairs look different. All 2nd quality shoes are fully functional and technically flawless.
Webshop okay again and with new function
From now on you have the opportunity to be notified when your desired shoe is available again.
Of course, all compliant with the German data protection law and without obligation to purchase the goods!
Maybe you have noticed that our online shop has been living its own life for weeks which did not meet our expectations.
Finally, we can announce that our webshop is running smoothly again! Hooray!
Should you discover a bug or texts that do not appear in your chosen language, please let us know. So you help us to eliminate the last flaws.
As if distant gardens withered in the sky…”
These words of the poet Rainer Maria Rilke allow us to feel the leaves we gently walk over.
We feel mother nature speaking to us because we are sensitive, because we wear barefoot shoes.
And so the earth carries us when we honor her. Maybe a cheeky chestnut cheats under the sole and asks, “Do you feel me?”
Yes, we feel you, see you, little chestnut.
Matching ankle boots and shoes for autumn can be found in our online shop
Or you can visit the Aehrenkranz shop in Berlin.

Closed on Mondays, Tuesday to Friday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturdays 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Maybe you have noticed that our online shop has been living its own life for weeks which does not meet our expectations …
We have now decided to completely rebuild the website. Until then, you can still look around our site and also buy our shoes – no data gets lost or lands in undesirable places.
If you do not find your desired shoe it is either sold out or our webshop is going crazy again. Then please write us a short email!
