Phillip Holzbauer

Founder of Wunderteam

How it all started! While partying somewhere in Austrian woods at night with friends, Philipp fell over a root on the ground and ruptured a tendon in his leg. A couple of weeks later, he still stumbled while walking, so a friend of his - who happened to be a hobby boxer - said: "You should wear boxing shoes. You won't twist your leg anymore, but you'll still be able to move around agile."

The idea sounded interesting, so he bought a pair of used boxing shoes. The trick seemed to work, but the shoes looked awkward and were obviously not meant to be used on concrete.

So he found a cobbler that made him a unique pair. The shoe felt great and looked good. In fact so good, that people kept asking about them. So he had 10 pairs made, and sold them to friends. And that's how it all started…

Alex Kapranos

Nice shot of Alex Kapranos, singer, founder and guitarist of british/scotish band "FRANZ FERDINAND" 🇬🇧 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿Eventhough he spent almost an hour in our store, which gave us time to chat about several topics, he did something only few visitors do: he grabbed a pair of Bowlers, and immediately knew these are the shoes he wants!

Raymond Thiry

He fell in love with two "Kicker" models that were on display - and of which unfortunately there was only a left and a right pair in his size. No problem for Raymond, he really wanted them - and now he just wears two different pairs, proving that even Dutch pragmatism can have its eccentric facets 🤙🏼 😃
