The Strassbergers factory
While Strassbergers is the oldest shoe manufacturer in South Africa, the factory as it stands today was only built in 1980. It is centrally located in Clanwilliam and houses the manufacturing floor, storage facilities, the company's administration offices and a show room where you can try on and buy your favourite Strassberger shoes.
In keeping with the heritage of Strassbergers, 80% of the manufacturing process is still done by hand. Certain aspects of construction have been mechanised to ensure the best quality shoe money can buy, but for the most part your shoe is put together by hand by a skilled team of professionals. One unique aspect of a Strassbergers shoe is that your product can be re-soled, so you can keep one pair of shoes for a lifetime.
