About us

The Szeles shoemaker company has been operating since 1954 in our Budapest workshop.
Our products are produced using traditional procedure and manual work with hundreds of
meticulous operations. The handmade products are with crop leather sole, with layered leather
heels, using glue and wood peg technology. The tops are made of the finest cow, calf and pig
skin, some with lacquer decoration or velvet embroidery. The perfectly fitting shoes and boots
prepared in the workshop meet the highest quality requirements.

For more than 5 decades tradition and experience, we are producing strapped shoes for
women folk dancers, 3 strand braided and seamed hard- and soft-calf boots for men and
women, as well as women’s and men’s shoes and “trekking boots”.

On this website you can find all the aspects that can help you create an unique pair of shoes.
You can use this information in the form of an e-mail order. If required, in our workshop we
also prepare custom made shoes from size 27 to 52. The taking of measurement occures in our
shop according to a pre-agreed time. The required made to measure shoes are ready within 3-
10 weeks, then we inform the customer to come to try his first tailor made shoes and to jointly
check the result of our craftwork.

Most of our products are available from stock, but we can also produce some customize
footwear in red, burgundy, white, brown and other colors as well.

We also sell our products at the annual national folk dance festival and fair.
