We love that VIER is a footwear brand that breaks the mould, combining traditional and innovative techniques, and a classic yet playful aesthetic.
A TALE WORTH TELLING
VIER was founded in Germany by fashion graduate Sophia Castell-Rüdenhausen, whose passion for shoes has grown since childhood. The brand exists to help make life more fun, crafting shoes mostly in the traditional way, with a modern look that’s less serious. Each pair takes a classic style and adds a signature twist – a distinctive touch that helps you stand out from the crowd. And you’ll find their artisan-made shoes – crafted in a family owned workshop in Portugal – are full of little touches that make a big difference. Like a Goodyear welted construction, the most durable shoemaking technique, and laser cut parts for ultimate precision.
QUALITY IN THE MAKING
Each pair of VIER shoes is handcrafted in Portugal, in a family owned studio that’s been in the shoemaking industry for generations. They’re masters of the Goodyear Welting technique, and combine traditional techniques with an innovative approach – like including laser cut details.
