In 1734, the Van Bommel family started producing hand-made quality shoes in Breda, the Netherlands. At present, the brothers Reynier, Floris and Pepijn van Bommel represent the 9th generation to manage the family business. The knowledge transferred from father to son continues to be employed to this day in the manufacture of Van Bommel shoes.
During the production process, on average, a Van Bommel shoe undergoes some 280 treatments. High-quality materials such as leather inner sole, calf’s leather lining, full-grain calf’s upper leather, waxed thread and vat-tanned sole leather all guarantee quality. The collection includes shoes manufactured according to the moccasin method, the goodyear method, the blake method, the sachetto method and the ago method.
In 1952, Van Bommel was granted the title ‘By Royal Appointment’, by Royal Decree.
