Eleganz trifft auf Größe: Kathis Shoes revolutioniert den Markt für große Schuhgrößen

Elegance meets size: Kathis Shoes revolutionises the market for large shoe sizes

The story of a female-founded shoe label from Mainz

Fashion is much more than just clothing; it is an expression of our personality and femininity. In a world where women are getting taller, the demand for fashionable shoes in larger sizes is also growing. Women with a height of 1.81 metres and shoe sizes from 42 to 45 are no longer a rarity. Kathis Shoes has taken up this challenge and revolutionised the shoe market.

Kathis Shoes: Feminine shoes for shoe sizes 41.5 to 45 (UK 7,5 to 11)

Kathis Shoes, a label run by women, offers high-quality, feminine shoes for women with larger feet. Created in Mainz and handmade in Italy, Kathis Shoes combines elegance with quality and sustainability. The collection includes stylish sandals, Chelsea boots and lace-up boots that are specially tailored to the needs and proportions of women with larger feet.

Craftsmanship meets sustainability

At a time when sustainability is becoming increasingly important, Kathis Shoes focusses on longevity. Each pair of shoes is made from the finest leather and can be taken to the cobbler, as in the past, to extend their lifespan. This is the new "old" sustainable for Kathis.

Exclusive fit and design

Katharina Rühl, the founder of Kathis Shoes, has spent years of detailed work developing a collection that is not simply larger versions of standard pattern sizes. Each design has been specifically developed to fulfil the proportions and needs of women with larger feet. This means an exclusive fit and components made specifically for these sizes. The shoes are not only fashionable, but also repairable - each sandal even comes with an extra pair of heel patches.

A personal touch in every detail

Katharina Rühl knows every supplier and employee in the Italian manufactory personally, which guarantees the exclusivity and quality of every shoe. Each model is timeless and yet has that certain something that makes it unique. The sandals, for example, offer interchangeable straps for customised looks.

We are all equally feminine

Whether tall or short, every woman is equally feminine. Kathis Shoes celebrates this femininity in all its facets and offers women with larger feet the opportunity to emphasise their beauty and individuality in style..

By women for women

At 1.81 metres tall and shoe size 42/43, founder Katharina Rühl is one of the women Kathis Shoes aims to appeal to. It was important to her to set out for all of us women and create beautiful opportunities for our feminine expression. "I am convinced that life lives from opposites and that it is essentially about recognising, bringing together and living out all the different facets of one's own life. That's why with Kathis I inspire women to discover their unique combination of the disparate, to recognise their individual beauty and greatness, to learn to love and to powerfully create security within themselves," says Katharina Rühl.
