About Loints of Holland
In 1918 C. Klijsen started making shoes in a shed behind his house in the small town of Kaatsheuvel, Holland. As quantities grew his son took the helm and rebuilt the shed into a small shoe factory. By the end of WWII, the company began to specialize in comfort and semi-orthopedic shoes. In the 70's Kees Klijsen, third generation of Loints of Holland shoe makers, took over and focused the design and production on a pure and simple philosophy. This philosophy included several common sense eco measures that are still in use today, including: producing many unlined shoes to save leather, and using European tanneries which following strict eco-policies. Today, Loints of Holland continues to produces some of the finest European wellness shoes. Shoe connoisseurs know the brand for their superior comfort, fit and flexibility.
