LEGERO: THE QUALITY-CONSCIOUS SHOE LABEL FROM AUSTRIA

Exceptionally light everyday companions in uncompromisingly good quality: these are shoes from the Legero brand. The company has been successful on the market for over 150 years. Its expertise in product development, production and sales is correspondingly great. Despite its long existence, the label has retained its love of craftsmanship. Legero shoes are mostly handmade and are only put on the market after a strict quality control. The high quality awareness is also evident in the design. The colours are mostly classic and convince with versatile combinability. At the same time, hand-applied details - such as diagonal zips or colour-accentuated soles - add a peppy twist.

 

LEGERO: SUCCESSFUL ON THE MARKET SINCE 1872

The Legero brand was founded in 1872 by Bernhard Strakosch as "B. Strakosch & Sohn" in Vienna. Early on, the young company specialised in the production of extra-light shoe models that would accompany their wearers through all seasons. The brand achieves this lightness through careful material selection. A procedure that is still essential for the popularity of Legero shoes today. Many models are made of TENCEL, a specially processed modal fibre obtained from beech wood. The fabric is not only particularly pleasant for the skin, it is also exceptionally soft and flexible. 

 Since 2013, Legero has been increasingly dedicated to sustainability. With the founding of VIOS - a platform for sustainable materials and manufacturing processes - the brand has committed itself to the consistent implementation of ecological standards. Legero regularly reviews the social sustainability of its own supply chains, and the company has also set itself the goal of being CO2-neutral by 2030. And: Legero is a member of the Leather Working Group (LWG) and in this way supports the environmental certification of the leather industry.
