josef seibel is one of the big names for shoes for the masses over here in germany, "the european comfort shoe"
,located in the kaiserslautern area, once the heart of the german shoe industie. today, kaiserslautern is home for thousands of us military personnel at ramstein airbase.
i checked out their website, and was astonished to find out, that seibel still runs a shoe factory in germany. they are also linked to the german schoe museum.http://josef-seibel.xsi.de/Willkomme...0000000003.htm
