Accept no compromise! Don’t be a cookie cutter image of everyone else. The recipe for an inspirational image is to step into a unique pair of Kennel & Schmenger shoes. "Accepting no compromise" is the driving force behind the quality and elegant expectations of each pair of sensational shoes, elegant high heels, flats, sneakers and breathtaking boots from the Kennel & Schmenger footwear collection.

In these times of mass production, it has become almost exceptional to encounter individuality and hand-made manufacturing. Kennel & Schmenger is an exciting exception with 95 years of shoe craftsmanship; the family-owned firm has succeeded in perfecting their products and bringing the Kennel & Schmenger footwear collection to an international level. Today the company is one of the leading German manufacturers of luxury shoes and accessories.

The passionate philosophy of the Kennel & Schmenger footwear collection is to only use products of the finest quality such as premium leather, quality craftsmanship and the designs that are the latest international trends. This is the only suitable standard for a fashion-forward, modern woman with high expectations, which is the Kennel & Schmenger customer.

Kennel & Schmenger was founded in 1918, in Pirmasens, which was then well known for its remarkable shoe industry. Kennel & Schmenger has remained a family business ever since. Klaus Kennel managed the firm for 50 years and recently retired in 2011. The firm's tradition-steeped corporate culture is carried on by its managing director Andreas Klautzsch. Today the company retails its products in 33 countries all over the world.

Kennel & Schmenger has created something that is nowadays rarely found: a link between high quality, authenticity, and the belief in tradition.

Accepting no compromise-it clearly pays off.

I love this shoe. Fabulous furry sneaker for winter. Sadly, I bought a beautiful pair of expensive furry sneakers the same week, the Mephisto Ginou, and could not just justify keeping both. It did take me a couple of weeks to build up the emotional fortitude to actually tape up the box and send them back, but I finally just returned them :(

These are incredibly cute, but seems like a lost opportunity for more comfort in the footbed. No discomfort wearing them but not going to be my choice for longer walking.

I like this shoe. Super comfortable. I scuffed the front walking the second time I wore them which has chewed up the front. Very disappointed about that. I am usually a 10. I have the 10 but I think a 9 1/2 would have been better for me.
