HESCHUNG / FR
Heschung is a fourth-generation French shoemaker known for authentically made quality footwear, founded in 1934 by Eugène Heschung.
Today, the third and fourth generation of the Heschung family, Pierre and Romain, run the company and factory in Alsace based on its original ideals of timeless, comfortable and tough footwear mixed with only the most viable of contemporary trends.
Beginning in the 1950s, Heschung pioneered the domain of leather ski boots, which eventually led them to become the official supplier to the French ski team, winning nine medals at the Grenoble Winter Olympics in 1968m and eight medals at the Sapporo Winter Olympics in 1972.
It was Pierre Heschung who, in the 1990s, introduced the brand to the consumer market with a timeless collection of derbies, oxfords and boots.
