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.

The (pre) sale of our winter boots has started!

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.


… the leaves fall, fall as if from far.
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.
Opening hours from November 2019:
Closed on Mondays, Tuesday to Friday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturdays 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Address: Prenzlauer Allee 31,10405 Berlin
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!

Ballerinas on SALE

It is still hot and sunny in Berlin. But even the most beautiful summer comes to an end.
Until then, you have the unique chance to buy our ballerinas at a reduced price in the webshop and in the Berlin flagship store.

The sale is running only until the beginning of autumn on September 23, 2019.


Update about our English bug:
We still haven’t caught the bug that shows faulty English product sites and stock. Therefore you can only use our German webshop. We are working on it! If you need help ordering the shoes, contact us directly via email or telephone.
One more tip:
The ballerinas are felt by some feet to be too wide. This is where our insole helps, which also offers additional comfort while keeping the barefoot feeling.
We have found a bug that does not properly synchronize the stocks in German and English. We work on it and let you know as soon as the English page runs smoothly. This only applies to our customers on the English site; the stock infos on the German site are correct. So if you use the English site, gain all info in English first and then for ordering switch to German for now. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Big opening party of our Berlin flagship store

Finally our shoes arrived from Portugal! We are very excited about the high quality. We want to celebrate with you the beginning of our sales launch!

Come on Saturday, the 24th of August ’19
from noon to 8 p.m. to
Prenzlauer Allee 31, 10405 Berlin

(Tram M2 to Knaackstraße, only a few minutes from Alexanderplatz)
Our guest of honor, the doctor, health practioner and GODO® expert Dr. med. Hans-Peter Greb, will be there to answer your questions about forefoot striking and healthy footwear. By the end of the seventies Peter had already discovered how important a healthy way of walking is for our body and our soul. Among others, he wrote the book The true walk, from Heeling to Healing, which was recently published in English. We are very happy that Peter is so excited about our shoes and visits us!
In addition, you can meet Annette Becker, shoe designer and founder of Aehrenkranz, in person and ask her whatever you always wanted to know.
Toys and books for young and older children are available. Also, we have prepared some surprises for you.

We are very much looking forward to party with you!



Delivery in two weeks

Anyone who has followed our development for a while has learned about the hurdles that we encountered. But that was not all.
About four weeks ago, we were without shoelaces because the lace manufacturer decided at short notice that producing such small quantities in so many different colours and lengths was not economical for him.
Then we noticed last Friday that our cartons were printed faulty, so we quickly had to reclamate 1000 shoeboxes.
These are just a few examples … We really hope that the universe will no longer put any big stones in our way and that our manufacturer will deliver the shoes to us in two weeks.

As soon as the shoes arrive in Germany, our logistics partner will send them to you and also supply our shop.

We will tell you the date for the opening party of our shop in Berlin in one of the following posts.


We shot our first collection in the photo studio yesterday.
