Halfs Haferl shoes. Made in Munich.


At the Munich October Fest, the shoe wear decides if the beer tent waitresses make it through the two week stretch of a job that can be considered extreme sport. One such daring darling Bavarian waitress, was holding her traditional costume shoes to go along with the mandatory Dirndl dress responsible for a blister free 14 day marathon of serving up to 12 beer mugs per run.

The traditional Bavarian costume shoe of perfect fit with the traditional Bavarian costume called Dirndl, are called Haferl shoes.

Achim Münch is the one man she trusts with her shoe wear, a Munich shoemaker and entrepreneur, who manufactures Bavarian traditonal shoes for the new world with Halfs, the brand and retail store located nearby the English Garden available online at halfs.de.
