History

Loints of Holland is a natural shoe brand, designed in the Netherlands, produced in Europe and started in 1918. As strong advocates of a natural lifestyle, we design shoes that symbolize endless wearing comfort. Good for your body and the planet.

The adventure began in 1918 in the Netherlands. Loints of Holland was born when Cornelis Klijsen opened his own workshop in Kaatsheuvel. There, in a modest shed, he began a journey that would embody comfort, whimsy and durability. From the very beginning, at Loints of Holland we opted for a natural fit and the very best use of high-quality materials. These values ​​were passed on with dedication, from generation to generation of Klijsen. The craft, which is lovingly practiced, is and remains the core of our identity. We have always longed for the unknown, for what had not yet been discovered. By continuing to experiment with anatomy, new production methods and the highest quality materials, we have taken a unique path. Less waste, more lifespan. This has led to our characteristic, idiosyncratic design. Today, the fifth generation – Johan, Ronald and their father Erik Klijsen – are taking the helm. Rooted in our homeland, we remain true to our origins. Although our workshop is now elsewhere, our passion has remained unchanged. The essence of Loints of Holland, which originated in Kaatsheuvel, still guides us. With a global online presence, we are at the forefront of the world of ethically and sustainably produced shoes. Our journey is one of enduring discovery, of subdued pride, and of a constant search for the best. Step inside Loints of Holland, where hapiness is created in everyday walks.
