Rieker’s philosophy has always been to provide not just a better product, but the best people can buy. We produce high quality leisure products that not only look good, but enhance the wearer’s lifestyle.

In less affluent times, Rieker shoes were famous for their longevity. In today’s lifestyle driven market, Rieker is unique in being able to quickly respond to the fashion trends that women and young people want, whilst providing the product functions important to feel good in everyday life.

For many consumers with a hectic lifestyle, who want good looks and performance, Rieker has gained an almost cult like following.


Rieker shoes are not merely decorative, fashionable, products. Their functional features mean they offer much more than that. Every shoe incorporates our special construction and utilises lightweight and elastic components to achieve our special antistress features. Those features are:

  1. Minimum weight.
  2. Maximum reflexibility (what we call the ´barefoot´ feeling).
  3. A construction that devotes space to areas where the foot expands through the day.
  4. Optimum shock absorption on varying surfaces.

Rieker shoes are different from athletic shoes because the design of athletic shoes is mostly for short-term, high performance. The performance of Rieker shoes is not only measured by how fast you run or how high you jump but how good you feel in everyday life.
