After the introduction of the Wolky Nature line, the Wolky City line followed in 1989 with its fashionable and colourful sandals with a revolutionary insole consisting of cork and memory foam. After this success, Wolky introduced several shoe lines with removable insoles.

Sperry Top Sider
History: A brand born at Sea
As Paul Sperry watched his cocker spaniel, Prince, run across the ice on a winter’s day in Connecticut, he noticed his dog’s amazing ability to maintain traction on the slippery surface. Turning over Prince’s paw, he observed hundreds of tiny cracks and cuts going in all directions. These wave-like grooves became the inspiration for Mr. Sperry’s latest patent, called Razor-SipingTM, and were instrumental in maximizing the traction and performance of the Authentic Original Sperry Top-Sider first introduced in 1935. Since inventing the first boat shoe, our brand continues to share our “Passion for the Sea” with those who enjoy the good life in, on and around the ocean. Sperry Top-Sider has been an American Original since 1935 when Paul Sperry invented the first boat shoe for sailors.

It all started in the 1922, when three smart businessmen invented a new brand name: Mr. Hans Rollman, Mr. Karl Michael and Mr. Karl Kaufmann decided to use the 1st two letters of their surnames to create the brand name RO MI KA.The three partners knew exactly, that from the marketing point of view, the name concept was perfect: Easy to pronounce, read and write, not only in Germany, but also for most international markets: The remarkable and simple character of these 6 letters became a synonym for high quality premium footwear products worldwide. It was Mr. Rollmann and his partners who invented many new materials and constructions like foam rubber or Vibram.
