Handcraft from Budapest. Heinrich Dinkelacker .
Shoes from the workshop of HeinrichDinkelacker have been made in Budapestsince the 1960s and prior to thatfrom 1879 in Sindelfingen in southernGermany. What makes these shoesoutstanding is their fit, but above alltheir exceptional craftsmanship. EachDinkelacker shoe requires 300 differentprocedures. After the prototype hasbeen made, the patterns are cut; andafter a very careful selection the leatherthat makes up the shaft for the uppersis cut. This leather is then steamed andthe shaft is stretched over the woodenshoe lasts, nailed and the following dayre-pinched. After a week the leather istaken from the last – machine-madeshoes usually only stay on the last for30 minutes! – This guarantees that theshoe maintains its form and fit for manyyears to come.
