16. Which shoe sizes does Trippen offer?
Our shoe sizes correspond to German measurements.
Women: For closed shoes we offer sizes 35 to 42 in all our collections. Some models in the Happy collection are only available in sizes 35 to 41. The sandals in the Happy and Splitt collections are only available in sizes 36 to 42. Some models in the Happy, Penna and x+os collections can run a size smaller than usual due to the seam at the front of the shoe.
Men: Our men sizes range from 39 to 47. The Box collection is only available in sizes 39 to 44. The Cup, Sport and Penna collections are only available in sizes 39 to 46. All our Cup models for men come up about one size larger than usual.
Kids: Our children sizes range from 23 to 34. All our children shoes come up about one size larger than usual.
Our size chart shows which sizes correspond to each other in the various size systems. If you’re uncertain what your exact Trippen size is, simply measure the length of your foot in centimetres while standing and compare the length to the German or Italian sizes in our size chart.
17. Does Trippen offer half-sizes?
No. But we do offer tapered insoles and felt insoles for our Closed collection to adjust the fit.
18. What can I do if my Closed shoes make a squeaking noise?
Unfortunately, in some of our Closed shoes the cork insole can rub against the insole causing them to make a squeaking noise. It is usually very easy to eliminate by taking out the cork insole and sprinkling a little talcum powder underneath it. You can use regular body or talcum powder. If you do not have any talcum powder at hand, we will be happy to send you a sachet.
19. How should I care for my shoes?
You will find information on how to care for the different leathers on our website under “MATERIALS” AND “LEATHER/COLOUR”. Nubuck and similar leathers with a roughened surface should only be treated with a waterproofing spray. For all smooth leathers, we recommend using a light shoe polish such as Collonil Ultra Colourless with Lanolin. Shoes made from light coloured “elk” or “mfl”leathers, should not be treated with any shoe care products at all, as these could stain the leathers.
20. The leather of my shoes has become brownish over time. What can I do?
Most of our leathers are vegetable-tanned and darken with time and when exposed to sunlight. This natural process cannot be stopped by any care product, and is no quality defect. You can refresh the colour using a light shoe polish, such as Collonil Ultra, matching the original colour of your shoes.
21. How do I order laces and cork insoles?
Simply contact our customer service under T +49 30 532 13 056 or F +49 30 280 49 359 or send us an e-mail to email@example.com. Regular insoles for the Closed cost EUR 14.00 per pair, tapered insoles for the Closed cost EUR 13.00 per pair. One pair of laces costs EUR 5.00. Please let us know your shoe size and the delivery address. For laces we also need the name, the style and the colour of your shoes. Please transfer the total amount in advance to our bank account, and we will send you the laces or insoles as requested.
22. Where can I have my Trippen shoes resoled or repaired?
Simply send your shoes to:
Trippen direkt GmbH
Please enclose a short note stating your name, postal address, phone number and e-mail address. Please also include information on what you would like to be repaired and how you would like to pay for the repair. Repairs being sent back to an address in Germany will be delivered free of charge and can be paid for either by "cash on delivery" or by credit card (Mastercard, Visa, American Express, JCB) or via bank transfer in advance. If you would like to pay by credit card, we will need your card number, the expiry date and the three-digit security number on the back of the card. The amount will only be debited from your credit card account the day the repair is dispatched. If you are paying by bank transfer in advance, we will contact you once the repair is ready for dispatch to inform you about the total costs and our bank details. The shoes will be dispatched as soon as we have received the payment. If you would like to return your Trippen shoes from a non-EU country for a resole or repair, please contact our Customer Service first for information on EU customs regulations.
23. Does Trippen offer custom-made shoes?
24. Does Trippen offer any shoes made from vegan materials?
Currently, we do not offer any shoes made from vegan materials. In addition to the uppers, also the insoles and socks of our shoes are made from leather. Due to technical reasons, it is not possible to use other materials here instead. It is not possible to change the uppers to a leather substitute either, as many of our designs are based on the specific properties of the material itself. Furthermore, most of the leather substitutes currently available are plastics on the basis of mineral oil.
25. How can I find Trippen retailer close to me?
You will find the addresses of all Trippen retailers around the world on our website, under “STORES” and “RETAILERS”.
