Busy days in the office, extended shopping trips, walks and long hikes: even more than 30 years ago, Christian Bär was already well aware of the things that our feet have to deal with on a daily basis, resulting in the revolutionary idea of uncompromising toefreedom. This was coupled with a zero heel and the highest-quality materials. From its lone comfortable orthopaedic shoe, the company has developed an attractive product portfolio that focuses on the natural sensation of walking combined with a quality of design that meets the highest of standards. 


Your feet in good hands

Our aim is the ‘perfect shoe’ – a shoe that doesn’t pinch and that supports your feet in the best possible way. This is why every BÄR shoe is crafted traditionally by hand – in over 160 stages using an anatomic last that we developed ourselves. The dedication and time we invest in every shoe at the BÄR workshop pays for itself in terms of pleasant feel-good benefits for your foot. Just like you, all we want is one thing for your feet: the best!

Nothing can grow without roots

BÄR GmbH, which was founded by Christian Bär and his wife Hilke in 1982, combines the idea of uncompromising toefreedom with a back-friendly zero heel and superior craftsmanship. Today the family company is run by their sons Christof and Sebastian Bär. They are determined to continue to develop the comfort of BÄR shoes featuring toefreedom and innovative design, including with the use of cutting-edge technology. Always true to the BÄR promise: enjoy your every step.

The BÄR principle

„We consistently pursue the idea of
uncompromising toefreedom. In doing so,
we prove every day that beautiful design
and unique comfort are not mutually exclusive.“
