We are a company with a proud tradition that combines handcraft and zeitgeist in our manufacture. Our manufacturing base in Pirmasens looks back on a long, innovative history in shoemaking. Kennel & Schmenger is now one of the last remaining factories in Germany that still produces locally. Over generations Kennel & Schmenger became known as a reliable and trustworthy partner in trade and business.


Kennel & Schmenger has a distinctive handwriting that elevated it to become one of the key brands in the premium segment. With the collections’ variety within all product groups our styles convey both aesthetics and casualness. Over the years Kennel & Schmenger gained essential experience. This comprehensive know-how is used throughout all groups of products like pumps, sneakers, sandals, boots and booties.

The ongoing challenge of a modern premium label is to enhance the spirit of the time, to rouse emotions and to be simultaneously close to market needs.
