about


”Atelier Leonard Kahlcke is a studio and workshop specialised in last making and custom-made shoes in Frankfurt am Main. Having learnt his craft in Vienna and London, Leonard Kahlcke returned to his origins and founded the Atelier Leonard Kahlcke in 2010. Combining professional knowledge with a keen eye for contemporary design that contributes to the tradition of classic shoemaking have since then become the signature of the Atelier’s practice. In 2016 the eponymous store was opened right in the center of Frankfurt's financial district. In the midst of towering skyscrapers the store offers a wide selection of distinct shoe designs and presents the integral approach of the studio, to think the process of making, the last, the design and the finished shoe as one. The foundation of all is the handmade last carved out of wood and based on the individual measurements of the clients feet to guarantee perfect fit and elegance whether it is a Made-to-Order, a Made-to-Measure or a fully Bespoke shoe. Leonard Kahlcke follows the philosophy of a German last making tradition that proofed to be seminal since more than a century. Aware of knowing the legacy and the heritage that comes with it, Atelier Leonard Kahlcke is a true contributor to the present and future of custom-made shoemaking.”
