GROUNDIES® „Made in EU"
We are proud of the fact that our shoes are manufactured entirely in the EU. These short transport routes minimise harmful CO2 emissions and make the supply chains transparent.
New prototypes are designed in the company's own development centre in Freiburg im Breisgau. The typical GROUNDIES® sole is produced in the traditional shoe metropolis of Pirmasens. In our shoe production site in Portugal, the soles and upper are sewn together by hand.
We create fair jobs
The social component of our production chain is of particular importance to us. After all, our shoes are created by people, for people.
We offer our employees long-term jobs with fair pay, optimal working conditions, and opportunities for further training. We follow up with them at regular intervals, to ensure their satisfaction.
As a team, we work on a daily basis to minimise our ecological barefoot footprint even further - starting, of course, with ourselves. To enable our employees to get to work in an environmentally friendly way, we provide modern and efficient e-bikes and e-scooters.
Our company goal is to manufacture our GROUNDIES® in a completely CO2-neutral way. With a view to achieving this milestone, we support "Plant-for-the-Planet". For each order we receive, we plant a tree in cooperation with the organisation.

Step by step, to reach our goal
Here at GROUNDIES®, we believe that the conservation of nature, economic performance, and social responsibility are inseparable. Full of passion, dedication and foresight, we design products that help to secure a sustainable livelihood for future generations.
That's why we carefully consider our production processes, down to the very last detail. In this way, we ensure that we minimise stress on the environment, helping to protect a world in which we can continue to walk barefoot for many years to come.
