For more than a century, the city of Pirmasens and the Southwest Palatinate region have been connected to shoemaking. However, the advance of industrialization and globalization led to the decline of the craft in the region. Only a few places still produce artisanal shoes as a labor of love – like our factory, Hummel&Hummel Schuhmanufaktur. As a family company, we know the business very well. We are honored to operate a production facility in Münchweiler, near Pirmasens, where we help keep the regional craft of shoemaking alive with our experienced team. We make high-quality shoes, and are very proud that every step in the process bears the label „Made in Germany.“ Our team of highly specialized shoe craftsmen works with a passion for the product. For several years, we’ve been training career changers as well as refugees who found a temporary home in our region; we have successfully integrated them into our team. Modern machinery allows us to manufacture high-quality shoes in a variety of designs. Our factory’s current focus is on the production of athletic shoes. We founded our factory in order to meet the growing demand for regional, sustainable production. We also set high standards for quality. Our company name, Hummel&Hummel, reflects the two generations in our family business.
