Reinhard Plank- Shoe Maker Extraordinaire

Reinhard Plank began his career making hats, just like TRM, so it is no wonder that she has such a soft spot for him. Based in Tuscany, Plank now creates hand made shoes, lovingly crafted from naturally tanned leather using vintage-inspired designs meaning that no two pairs are the same.

Reinhard studied industrial design in Vienna, where they taught him how to make immaculate objects, removing all evidence of handwork. Now, he prides himself on the visibility of his craftsmanship, and the results are so beautiful, that TRM couldn’t resist picking up her own pair of soles with soul.
