History of Rieker Shoes
Rieker Shoes started off as a small shoe factory in the city of Tuttlingen in the Black Forest area of Southern Germany. The company was founded in 1874 by Heinrich Rieker and Carl Seitz and was originally known as Rieker & Seitz, the Seitz name was dropped from the name in 1901 when Carl Seitz left the company.
When Heinrich Rieker passed away in 1905, management of the company was taken over by his three sons Heinrich Karl and Ernst and has been in the family for 5 generations. The Rieker brand very quickly became a household name built on a reputation for style, unquestionable quality and unrivalled workmanship.
By 1969, the company had become so large that they had to be split up into three divisions to function effectively and in the 1970’s the company’s headquarters were moved to Switzerland.
Today, Rieker employs approximately 20 000 people around the world in offices, factories and warehouses. Their unique antistress footwear is sold in more than nine thousand retailers around Europe.
