Founded 50 years ago as a family-owned business, Haflinger is the largest manufacturer of boiled wool in Germany.
Run by the grandson of the founder, Haflinger is known in many international markets for not only its boiled wool slippers and wool felt clogs, but more importantly for its outstanding quality and workmanship. In 1991 Gerda Hoehm began importing Haflinger into the U.S. and Canada and the company has since doubled and tripled sales from year to year.
Haflinger footwear has been extremely well received in North America. Americans are spending more and more time at home – working, relaxing, planning, playing, exercising – and the lines between these activities continue to blur. Our priorities are changing quickly as we place increasingly more emphasis on versatility, longevity, and simple, natural comforts. You can see the effects of this philosophy everywhere – casual work environments, the growing "Outdoor Movement," and the ubiquity of natural fabrics. To define the phenomenon as a trend does not suffice; the Haflinger team prefers to think of these developments as a Comfort Renaissance.
Although the recipe for reliable footwear and superior wool has not changed since the early days of Haflinger, the line has evolved its product offering to include a range of styles – children's slippers and clogs, leather and wool-felt cork-bottom clogs and sandals, hard and soft sole slippers, and a new line of European comfort-chic clogs. Whether you prefer the classic "Grizzly" wool felt clog, our breathable, comfortable boiled-wool slippers, or our fresh, new City Collection, Haflinger footwear will consistently treat your feet to the best!
