Rieker makes shoes for women and men who value exceptional comfort. With women's fashions including: casual and dressy slip-ons and cute Mary Janes, calf-high and ankle boots, and athletic-style shoes; and men's styles including: lace-up Oxfords, dressy slip-ons and casual walking shoes, casually dressy lace-up "summer" shoes, and contemporary athletic shoes, Rieker strives for comfortability. Every pair of Rieker shoes is specifically built to be light, flexible, roomy, and shock-absorbing. Rieker defines itself even in one word: “antistress”.
The Rieker brand has been known and respected among European shoe experts since 1874, when the company's first factory opened in Tuttlingen, Germany. Still led by the Rieker family, Rieker Antistress shoes entered the U.S. market in 1986, gaining new admirers with its dedication to providing "the ultimate in performance."
