Concierge.com's insider take:
The handmade shoes crafted at Trippen have passed the test of Berlin's perilous cobblestone streets since 1994. The mission: use ecologically friendly materials to create anatomically friendly designs. The results: whimsical-looking, fun, but totally functional shoes with colorful leather uppers and soles often carved from oak, beech, and poplar. A staggering 200 or so models for men and women sport some form-revealing names: The Scorpion has a leather strap that rises from behind to wrap around the ankle; the Mug has handles on the heels for easy carrying when you want to go barefoot.
